ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Enjoy a relaxing evening of music under the stars as the Houston Symphony returns to Miller Outdoor Theatre! This free performance features the orchestra’s woodwind and brass sections and includes selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet arranged for wind octet, music of Argentine tango master Astor Piazzolla, brass music from the Renaissance, and Red Clay and Mississippi Delta, which in composer Valerie Coleman’s words, “merges classical technique and orchestration with the blues dialect and charm of the south.”
