Apollo's Silenced Voices 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 censorship of American composers during the McCarthy period, while Harris County Public Library Director Edward Melton offers his experience leading one of the largest public library systems in the nation during a time of book banning.
