Description

Founded in Houston in 2000, Mercury has a mission to serve the community by celebrating the power of music, Baroque and beyond, teaching, sharing, and performing with passion, intimacy, and excellence. The orchestra offers performances of a broad repertoire of music on period instruments and has garnered critical acclaim around the world through innovative and accessible performances, domestic and international tours, and groundbreaking music education programs. Each year, Mercury performs over fifty concerts and reaches over 20,000 listeners and 5,000 youth in its performances around the Houston area and beyond. Touring programs are flexible to meet presenters’ needs but range from two-hour concerts of orchestral music featuring the full ensemble performing works from the Baroque to Romantic eras for large audiences of up to 1,000 to smaller ensembles for more intimate venues. Mercury also offers 45-minute educational presentations for school assemblies that mix standard curriculum topics such as science and history with an introduction to classical music as well as workshops for school orchestral programs.
