    CANTARE Houston presents Starry, Starry Night: Cantare Christmas at the MFAH, December 11, 12, 13, 18 & 20, at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

    Our annual concerts in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston are perennial sellouts! Led by artistic director and conductor Kevin Riehle, CANTARE consistently weaves musical tapestries and collages of many styles. Mesmerizing audiences with their vocal warmth and energy, CANTARE has discovered a treasured performance space in the resonant galleries of the MFAH. Our music, coupled with the magnificent art of the museum, engages the senses and transports audiences to the ethereal – where the visual and aural bring truly fine art.

    Programming classical masterpieces alongside new treasures is a hallmark of CANTARE’s holiday concerts. This year will not disappoint!  With an additional concert and two Saturday performances, Houstonians have even greater opportunities to experience these critically and popularly acclaimed kaleidoscopic holiday concerts.

    From Lloyd Pfautsch's delightful A Day for Dancing with woodwind trio, to Morten Lauridsen's evocative Nocturnes, to a cool jazz arrangement of Kurt Weill's Lost in the Stars, these starry, starry nights at the MFAH are sure to be Magic!
