Mission

Da Camera's mission is to produce and present concert experiences with a commitment to quality and innovation that broadens the audience for chamber music. From its founding, Da Camera's varied programming has consisted of chamber music in its broadest definition including both classical music and jazz, bringing highly acclaimed local, national and international artists together in inspiring productions. Da Camera's programs were among the first in the nation to connect music to literature, theatre and visual art, and to use video in multimedia concert productions. Among the first to incorporate jazz into a classical chamber music series, Da Camera is now recognized as the leading jazz presenter in the region. Celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2017-18, Da Camera engages audiences in diverse musical experiences that break conventional genre boundaries and encourage exploration.

Committed to the creation of new work, Da Camera has commissioned and premiered more than 30 new works in 30 years, many of which continue to be performed around the world by leading musicians. Da Camera has received numerous national awards for its creative programming concepts, and its original productions have been hailed in national press as “trendsetting" (Time Out New York), showing "unusual care and intelligence" (New York Times) and for their "ingenious thematic idea…brilliantly used" (The Washington Post). The Houston Chronicle describes Da Camera as, “a Houston gem."
