Our thoughts and prayers are with the Houston community as the havoc of Harvey continues. We’re glad to report that the staff and musicians are safe. Several experienced some harrowing moments during the last 72 hours, but are now safe and dry. For this, we are grateful.
We are so thankful to our first responders and community volunteers for their perseverance and generosity, and to our city officials, including Mayor Sylvester Turner, Judge Ed Emmett, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, and Police Chief Art Acevedo for their leadership and dedication to this wonderful city and all its citizens.
Today, Antoine and the musicians were to begin rehearsals for our annual free community concert at Miller Outdoor Theater on Saturday. However, this will have to be rescheduled and we hope to repurpose it as a benefit to help our community rebuild.
There are many question marks about the weeks ahead as our musicians, our arts partners, and our community recover. For now, we wait for the rain to end and find ways to be of service to both friends and strangers.
Wishing you the very best,
