Gallery Concert: “Van Gogh & Japan” in Music
The MFAH teams up with Cantare 8 to explore the musical influences of Japan on Western music as Vincent van Gogh would have known them. The performance includes a rendition of the Don McLean song “Vincent (Starry Starry Night).”
This gallery concert is inspired by the exhibition Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art as well as the film Van Gogh & Japan, which screens in Brown Auditorium Theater on Friday, June 14, and Saturday, June 15, at 2 p.m.
