Apollo Chamber Players to Present ‘REVISED’

By David Salazar

The Apollo Chamber Players are set to present “REVISED” on Feb. 17, 2024 at the Holocaust Museum Houston and at the Unity of Houston on Feb. 18.

The event, a collaboration with Jasmine Barnes, features “a genre-fusing statement on poetry, peace, historical revisionism, and Black censorship.” Audiences will get a chance to experience the world premiere of “Revise?” for poet, choir, and string quartet. Among the performers are soprano Jolie Rocke, mezzo-soprano Jan Taylor, tenor Kenneth Gayle, and baritone Antoine Griggs.

Also on the program is “PAX” by John Cornelius as well as music by Shostakovich, Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate, and Florence Price.

“For too long, the Black and American Indian communities have endured censorship and revision. We hope this program provides context, meaning, redemption and, above all, hope for the future for the multicultural American experiment,” said Apollo Founder, Director, and violinist Matthew J. Detrick in an official press statement.
