The Symphony's Educatio & Community Programs reach over 40,000 students from various school districts who attend David Dewhurst Symphony Explorer and Macy's Symphony Detective concerts. Every summer the orchestra tours the region with free family Sounds Like Fun! concerts, underwritten by the Robert and Janice McNair Foundation, and reaching 13,000 Houstonians. The Houston Symphony honors educators each year at the Spec's Charitable Foundation Salute to Educators Concert. The Symphony's educational partners include the Houston Independent School District and five other area school districts, as well as many private schools.

Through the GDF SUEZ Community Connections program, musicians serve the community as soloists, master class teachers and ensemble performers, lecturers, recitalists, touring and in student competitions. They also educate and entertain more than 22,000 area residents in schools, hospitals, retirement homes, shelters and community centers. Through programs like Fidelity Futurestage and Deloitte Dynamics, the Houston Symphony in partnership with business corporations provide music education opportunities and instruments to deserving band students at local high schools.

Upcoming performances at Houston Symphony include Prokofiev's 'Romeo and Juliet' on February 14-17, Wozzeck in Concert on March 1 and 2, Tchaikovsky's 'Pathetique Symphony' on March 7-10, and Debussy's 'La Mer' on April 11-14, amongst many other events.
