Unsilent Night

Join the Mitchell Center, in collaboration with Buffalo Bayou Partnership and Musiqa for a free interactive holiday event, Unsilent Night. New York composer, Phil Kline, created this 43 minute piece, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music that can easily be downloaded on your smart phone – you will be downloading the app once you arrive.  When participants play their different “parts” simultaneously, it helps create the special sound of the piece.

Revelers will walk a carefully chosen route along Buffalo Bayou’s Sabine Promenade with holiday stations along the way including cookies and hot chocolate. Prior to the musical parade, there will be tasty treats available for purchase and St. Arnold Brewing Company will be serving up some tasty local brew and root beer, plus a visit from Santa!

Thanks to our event partners St. Arnold Brewing Company, and Houston First Corporation.
