Ahoy matey! ‘Tis time to grab your parrot and walk the plank into Jones Hall with your little Jack Sparrow for a morning of heroic music. Let your imagination set sail with our pirate program that includes a medley from Pirates of the Caribbean and a selection from The Flying Dutchman.

2 | A GRINCH CHRISTMAS

DECEMBER 2, 2017
Robert Franz, conductor

It’s the holiday season in Dr. Seuss’ zany world of Whoville. Although the Grinch is in town, this Christmas will surely not be stolen! Join the Houston Symphony and local high school singers as we present the classic story of the grouchy, green creature. The festive fun also includes a holiday sing-along and the hit “Believe” from the movie Polar Express.

Robert Franz, conductor
Dave Kirk, tuba

Enter a land of enchantment with horses, castles and the unforgettable music from Beauty and the Beast as the Houston Symphony performs along with a local high school chorus. In our fairytale fantasy, we discover that things are not always as they seem, as in the adventure of Tubby the Tuba. Meet Tubby and his orchestra friends, including Peepo the Piccolo, as we learn what it’s like to find your own song.

APRIL 21, 2018

You’re invited to our Symphony fiesta! Bring your passport as we head south of the border for a colorful, cultural celebration. We’re highlighting the vibrant sounds of the Americas, including Brazil (Tico Tico) and Mexico (Conga del Fuego Nuevo). The party continues with a mariachi band as well as the Flamenco-inspired dance hit, “Macarena”!
