The orchestra is professional and consistently turns out a good product. I love the movie nights, and the kids enjoy the video game music. My kids grew up with Han Graf and now enjoy the talents of Andres Estrada.

World class! Something for all tastes: Pops, classics, even outdoor at the Miller amphitheater and Mitchell Pavilion in the Woodlands. Many performances have an introduction by a member of Symphony-which seems to make it more approachable. We appreciate that Houston has this cultural asset and...More
