Houston Symphony performs Mozart’s A Little Night Music
March 21, 2012 by James
This weekend, the Houston Symphony will be performing a show titled Mozart’s A Little Night Music with a ball after-party scheduled for tomorrow night.
For almost 100 years, the Houston Symphony has played for countless Houstonians. Having started in 1913, the Houston Symphony performed a number of shows and has become widely acclaimed as one of the best symphonies in the world.
As one drives through downtown Houston, visitors may see, in the Museum or Entertainment Districts, the flags and banners portraying the logo of the Symphony strung across street lights and buildings. These were provided by banner printing services in order to advertise the Symphony. The banners often show pictures or information pertaining to new or returning shows coming to the Symphony.
With it’s fifteenth music director, Maestro Hans Graf, the Houston Symphony shows approximately 170 shows a year ranging from a variety of series from the Fidelity Investments Classical series to the KPRC Local 2 News Summer Symphony night at Miller Outdoor Theatre. Often, the Symphony will put on a number of special, non-annual shows. For example, Distant Worlds is an exclusive symphony dedicated to the beautiful music from the Final Fantasy franchise which has been around since the late eighties. A number of other shows have been performed by the Houston Symphony all around the Houston area.
This weekend’s show in itself will be a spectacular opportunity for whole families to attend while the ball after-party will be a wonderful evening out for adults.
