Apollo Chamber Players Presents: Banned

Apollo’s 16th season begins with a musical commentary on the “reasoning” behind book censorship and control, with nods to notable books that have been banned historically. Genre-fusing composer and flutist Allison Loggins-Hull, Composer Fellow for the Cleveland Orchestra, and Houston-based composer Mark Buller join Apollo for a program all-too resonant with our social and political moment. University of Houston professor Howard Pollack also joins to discuss the banning and censorship of American composers during the McCarthy period.
