Currently in it's 4th season, the St. Cecilia Friends of Music was established in 2003 with a mission of presenting a series of chamber music concerts by local artists to the greater Houston community. The series has featured many of Houston's finest musicians including artists from the faculties of Rice University and the University of Houston , the Houston Symphony Orchestra, the Houston Grand Opera and Ballet Orchestras, as well as many outstanding local freelance artists. All concerts are performed at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, located in the heart of the Museum Area. The concerts are presented in an informal atmosphere with complimentary refreshments served at intermission. The St. Cecilia Friends also value the importance of education and offer student concerts, master classes and other concerts of special interest.
For the program on February 8th the program featured music for Piano and Strings by Brahms and Beethoven and was offered by pianist Rodney Waters along with violinist Sophia Silivos, violist Wayne Brooks and 'Cellist Kevin Dvorak.
