DACAMERA, founded in 1987, was created with the intention to produce a series of thematically programmed chamber music and jazz concerts designed to attract new listeners to the concert hall. Under the artistic leadership of Sarah Rothenberg since 1994, DACAMERA maintains a commitment to the highest caliber of musicianship in the performers and ensembles brought together to perform in its concert series presented primarily at the Wortham Theater Center, the Hobby Center and The Menil Collection; and in its extensive education and outreach activities, recordings and touring productions.
