In March of 2020, Musiqa’s staff and board of directors made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Spark Benefit. As we face the many challenges brought on by COVID-19, the physical health and safety of our collaborators, patrons, friends and loved ones remains our top priority.

At the same time, we remain deeply dedicated to the cultural health of our community.

Musiqa has been presenting world premieres, innovative productions and educational opportunities to Houston audiences for 18 years.  The challenges we face now have encouraged us to think about new ways of working and presenting this work going forward, but have done nothing to dampen our enthusiasm for our mission. If you are able to give, your donation or membership in our Composer Circle means more to our survival now than ever before.

The Composer Circle is Musiqa’s patron group that supports the creativity of emerging and established composers through the commissioning and performance of new musical works. Composer Circle donors provide vital annual support for season programming and our many artists.

Our annual fundraiser is named “Spark” in acknowledgment of the creative impulse that drives us. We look forward to continuing to be a spark in Houston’s artistic community: sparking collaboration, innovation and beauty that reflects what we are all capable of.
