Learn more about the music you’re about to hear at our free Prelude pre-concert discussions, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical Series concert.
Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists and members of the orchestra. Botero first came to the Symphony in the 2014-15 season to serve as co-host of the “Musically Speaking with Andrés” series in its inaugural year. In this role, he worked closely with Music Director Andrés Orozco-Estrada in the preparation of repertoire and commentary.
In addition to leading the Symphony’s “Prelude” pre-concert talks before each Classical performance, Botero teaches continuing education programs and visits schools in the greater Houston area through the Houston Symphony’s Education and Community Programming activities.
