3000 Attend Symphony Concert Series

For the third year, the Houston Symphony performed to a full house in the Morris Cultural Arts Center’s Dunham Theater making a total of nearly 3,000 attending the Symphony Series so far this year. More than 1,500 high school students came for two concerts recently where they were able to interact during a Q&A time with the conductor and various musicians. The free community concert featured works from Tchaikovsky and Copland and an original piece by Teddy Abrams, conductor. Two ticketed concerts were held in February with conductor Mei-Ann Chen and Black History Month was celebrated with a special concert with the CityWide Grassroots Chorus, HBU’s Schola Cantorum and University Singers and members of the Brentwood Baptist Church Chorale.
