Join us for the start of the Houston Symphony’s new era at the Opening Night Concert and Gala, Verdi Requiem, on Friday, September 16, 2022. This celebration begins the 2022-23 Season, and the tenure of Juraj Valčuha as the Houston Symphony’s sixteenth music director and holder of the Roy and Lillie Cullen Chair.

The evening begins with a champagne reception on the Mezzanine level of Jones Hall, followed by the Opening Night Concert at 7:30, featuring Juraj Valčuha leading the orchestra and Houston Symphony Chorus alongside soprano Ana María Martínez, mezzo-soprano Marina Prudenskaya, tenor Jonathan Tetelman, and bass Dmitry Belosselskiy.

Following the concert, you will be transported to the Corinthian Houston for the Gala, which includes an elegant seated dinner by Jackson and Company and musical entertainment by the David Caceres Band. Valet service will be available for all Gala guests; simply arrive at Jones Hall and depart from the Corinthian.

All proceeds from Opening Night support the orchestra’s industry-leading Education and Community Engagement initiatives. We are deeply grateful to ConocoPhillips, the Opening Night Concert Sponsor and Lead Corporate Gala Underwriter for the 36th consecutive year.
