The Verreaux Collective, a professional classical music organization, will kick-off its inaugural concert season with a performance Sept. 22 at 7 p.m. at Lord of Life Lutheran Church.

Founded this year by a group of musicians at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, The Verreaux Collective is a nonprofit organization dedicated to performing chamber music for The Woodlands residents.

The organization is led by Andrew White, a resident of The Woodlands who is pursuing a degree in piano performance at the Shepherd School of Music.

“This new organization will bring the nation’s next generation of artistic leaders to the heart of the community, while providing students at the world-renowned Shepherd School of Music with opportunities for entrepreneurial and musical growth,” White said.

The organization hosted a preview concert in April featuring the Kamila Quartet.

While the group is not the first professional music organization to offer classical music in The Woodlands, White said the organization fills a unique niche exploring the depth and intimacy of chamber music—a genre designed for small halls and personal connections with audiences.

The group’s season opener on Sept. 22 will be the first of four performances in The Verreaux Collective’s inaugural concert season. The program will feature pianist Wesley Ducote, violinist Jacob Schaefer and cellist Bree Ahern performing selections from Austrian and German composers.

Tickets for general seating for the Sept. 22 concert cost $20 and can be purchased in advance here. Lord of Life Lutheran Church is located at 3801 S. Panther Creek Drive, The Woodlands.
