I had not been to see the HSO in a while. Recently attended a performance and was very impressed with the quality. I really like the new conductor. I certainly will plan to attend more regularly.

Performances are amazing. Jones Hall venue is older but so appropriate. Houston Symphony Chorus is an amazing volunteer group with world-class singers. Houston Symphony performers are outstanding.

Some attractions you take your kids and they get bored. Not this museum. Here you can bring your kids again and again, without any doubts. They will never get bored. There is something for every kid to get involved and be happy about.

The Houston Symphony has been a world class symphony for decades now, as any music lover knows. Lang Lang performing Tchaik 1 piano concerto was breathtaking. With Andres Orozco-Estrada at the helm and Lang Lang pushing speedily along, the musicians stayed together tightly and built...More

Love the symphony. Been going to this symphony since I was a kid. This is pretty much the only place in Houston for large-scale indoor symphonies. Miller Outdoor Theater sometimes has symphonic performances but then again, it's outdoors. The venue is quite good and you...More
