Throw yourself at the band’s eclectic tunes like “Sympathique,” “City of Night” and “Brazil,” as well as songs from their newly released album, Je Dis Oui! Ari Shapiro, host of NPR’s All Things Considered, will join Pink Martini on stage—his only appearance on their extensive international tour. So come along with Pink Martini, special guest Ari Shapiro, Steven Reineke and the Houston Symphony for an amazing, not-to-be-missed evening.

Marc Albrecht, who “On the podium…turns all into gold” (Financial Times), brings our season to an end with Brahms’ heroic Symphony No. 1, a monumental work that takes listeners from darkness to triumph.
