Mayor Supported Houston Airport System's "Harmony In The Air" Program Fights For Funding

Houston performing arts groups and supporters of the Houston Airport System's "Harmony in the Air" program will appear at the city council public session on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 starting at 2:00 pm on the second floor of City Hall to defend the funding for the successful program which invites professional Houston classical and jazz music groups to perform in the airport including: Ars Lyrica Houston, Axiom Quartet, Apollo Chamber Players, The Dancewicz-Doucet Duo, The Gerling-Mut Duo, Solero Flamenco, Tony Henry, Mystery Loves Company, Divisi Strings, Eddie Akhmetchine Trio, Pamela York Trio, Musiqa, Retrospect, Bob Chadwick Trio, EC Entertainment representing: Emily Klein, Melvin Johnson & The Electro- Acoustics Band, Rainel Joubert Duo Mark Prause Piano. The scheduled funding vote has been postponed twice due to some city council members resistance.

The "Harmony in the Air" program has garnered national attention with a feature in The New York Times, and the existing 4 out of 5 star rating has been equated to the program's impact. "Music provides a better passenger experience," states Darryn Perry, managing director in aviation and travel practice. The program is underwritten by the Houston Airport System as an enterprise fund that does not burden the local tax base but requires city council approval.

The City Council vote is scheduled for Wednesday, December 12, 2018. Performing arts groups and advocates of the "Harmony in the Air" program ask for community and media support in an effort to continue performing live music in the Houston airports.
