Start 2018 Off the Right Way with a Classical Concert at Jones Hall
Andrés leads a guided tour of Bartók’s masterful Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta. Famously featured in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, this innovative work combines modern sophistication with the visceral excitement of Hungarian folk music. Houston favorite Kirill Gerstein returns for a performance of Brahms’ powerful Piano Concerto No. 1, a deeply personal work often praised as a veiled symphony for its ambition and scope.
The lobby doors are opened one hour before Houston Symphony and Broadway Series performances. Street-level entrances provide access to the main lobby from Louisiana Street and the side entrance on Texas Avenue. The courtyard entrance is accessible through the tunnel from the Theater District Parking garage. The theater is generally opened 30 minutes before curtain.
A variety of food and beverages are available in the lobby before performances and during intermission. Food and beverages are not permitted inside the theater during Houston Symphony performances. Beverages are sometimes allowed in the theater for other performances.
If you feel like escaping Carelton Courtyard Apartments in Galveston, Texas for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
