PRESS RELEASE 

ArtStream Concert Series – Connecting Communities 

Houston, TX – Silambam Houston’s 20th year celebrations continue through its unique concert series ‘Art Stream’, with a very special collaborative performance on April 9th by the Artistic Directors of four Silambam  institutions across the US and India. This performance is presented by Silambam Houston, celebrating its  20th year, in collaboration with Silambam Dublin (OH), Silambam Phoenix (AZ), and Shri Silambam Acad emy (Chennai, India). Each of these organizations celebrates a special milestone this year. 

ArtStream is a series of unique commissioned concerts that bring together artists from within and outside  Houston. These concerts are intended to build and strengthen community connections, both within the arts  fraternity and in the larger community. Each concert will bring diverse artists together to present  commissioned work, will be presented live and live-streamed, and will spotlight a featured community  organization, project, or small business. 

This ArtStream concert spotlights A Wish For Hope – A San Jacinto South Theater Department project  inspired by the experience and positive spirit of several refugees at YMCA International. 

Patrons can reserve tickets to watch the upcoming ArtStream performance in person at the Silambam  Houston Cultural Arts Center, or online from the comfort of their home. Tickets for both in-person and online  viewing are pay what you can. Funds raised from ArtStream will go to support arts, artists and community. 

The ArtStream concert series is supported in part by an Arts Respond grant from the Texas Commission on  the Arts. Silambam also receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts, the City of  Houston through Houston Arts Alliance, the BIPOC Arts Network and Fund, and Dance Source Houston.

About Silambam Houston: 

From modest beginnings in 2002, Silambam has grown into Houston’s premiere nonprofit Indian classical arts  organization, with about 150 enrolled students, 17 faculty and staff members, eight classical Indian art forms  taught and performed, a sought-after professional dance company, and K-12 and community outreach  programs for various demographics, including underprivileged/disadvantaged communities. Silambam’s  artistic programming is a unique blend of high-quality arts education, outreach, performance, and  presentation that enriches communities through cross-cultural exchange. The organization recently

Designed to convert from classroom/studio space to a small-sized black-box theater, the Center  is equipped with theatrical lighting, sound, and soft goods, as well as raised seating.  

In addition to its programs in Pearland, Silambam also holds arts education programs in the Houston Heights  area, and regularly presents both community outreach and performance programming at venues across Hous ton, including the Children’s Museum, K-12 schools, Midtown Arts and Theater Center Houston (which also  houses its administrative office), and Miller Outdoor Theater.
