Merce Cunningham Dance and Concert, Arrivals and Departures: Cage, Cunningham, and Johns

A collaboration among the Menil Collection, Houston Ballet, and the Merce Cunningham Trust

At the same time, a group of Houston’s finest musicians perform compositions by John Cage, including his Inlets, Branches, Third Construction, Cheap Imitation, and Telephones and Birds. Musicians include Ling Ling Huang, Brandon Bell, Craig Hauschildt, Luke Hubley, Brady Spitz, Yvonne Chen, Julia Fox, and Bethany Baxter.
