A very enjoyable evening, with world class performers. This was a first for us, and likely to become a regular Christmas tradition. The Symphony Chorus, which is staffed by volunteers (I think) was outstanding, and truly complemented the soloists. The lead trumpet shone, especially on "The Trumpet Shall Sound", which was probably the highlight of the evening. Would not recommend this for young children, as it's a fairly serious piece of music.

Four of us went on the Sunday afternoon for 2:30PM in Jones Hall. It was really beautiful. The Conductor, the 2 vocalists and the Symphony were fantastic! We totally love it!

As always a wonderful evening with a variety of music all composed for piano. Fun popular songs and the classics Rhapsody in Blue... well done, Houston Symphony

The show overall was ok. We felt as though a Rolling Stones "cover band" stole the show from the Symphony players.
The show would have been so much better if the camera operator would have at least caught on camera, to show on the big screens, more of the individual players besides just the singer all night or the electric guitar player. We left the show at the end feeling somewhat disappointed.

Such a wonderful feeling being taken back to my childhood watching Indiana Jones movies. I got to see the movie and a live performance of the score on my birthday!
