Maren Morris
@HOB Houston Bronze Peacock

Friday, March 24th, 2017 8:00 PM

“Can I get a hallelujah, can I get an amen?” sings Texas-born, Nashville-dwelling Maren Morris on “My Church,” the lead single from her debut full-length, HERO. Though “sing,” however, might not be the most appropriate verbiage – she belts, more like it, in her dynamic range that can growl soulfully one moment and twangily howl the next. It’s an honest performance from an artist and writer who stands out for the singular point of view, sheer creativity and fearless approach to music she’s developed since she began performing and writing as a young child. Using the boldest colors from across many genres as her palate and country as her canvas, Morris’ stories are vivid paintings that can be gleefully fun, tearfully heartbreaking and a perfect balance of modern and timeless.

Houston Ballet's mixed reperatory program Director's Choice: Legends and Prodigy with Stepping Stones by Jiří Kylián, Grosse Fuge by Hans van Manen, and Year of the Rabbit by Justin continues this weekend.

Stepping Stones, a ballet for eight dancers, is set to John Cage’s Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano and Anton Webern’s Six Bagatelles for String Quartet, and acts as a reflection on the handing-on of cultural heritage. Kylián created the ballet in 1991 for the Stuttgart Ballet as a reverence to tradition and heritage. The dancers move with miniature copies of sculptures that range from prehistoric time to the time of Brancusi. All the while, they are watched by statues of Egyptian cats who have witnessed over 3,000 years of human evolution.
