As part of Kelvin TOP-SET’s involvement in the Houston community, David Ramsay, Kelvin TOP-SET Managing Director, recently made a donation to Mercury – a Houston based orchestra specialising in Baroque music which aims to bring classical music within reach of the community.
Now completing its 11th season, Mercury has inspired and exhilarated listeners in Houston and beyond. Mercury reaches over 20,000 audience members every year with its signature sound, passion for music, as well as its charm and dynamism. Mercury presents more than 50 concerts every season, including a world class series of performances at the Wortham Center, community concerts around the greater Houston area, and tours both domestically and internationally. Last season, Mercury made its European debut with five critically acclaimed performances of Lully’s opera Armide in Paris. In addition to the orchestra’s prolific performances, Mercury is devoted to educating Houston’s future musicians. Most recently, Mercury established a groundbreaking partnership with YES Prep Public Schools, where Mercury musicians teach private lessons, chamber music and orchestra classes to the students of the West Campus. Mercury’s educational outreach programs have touched the lives of more than 10,000 children in the past 5 years alone.
