Ring in the New Year with Andres Orozco-Estrada and the Houston Symphony, Jan 2014
The Houston Symphony's January calendar features two out-of-this-world concerts with Music Director Designate Andrés Orozco-Estrada including Mozart's Jupiter Symphony on January 3, 4 and 5 and a double-header performance of The Planets And The Earth - An HD Odyssey on January 9, 11 and 12.
January also brings fun for the family with Wild, Wild West! on the morning of January 25 and The Contemporary Songbook, a POPS concert on January 24, 25 and 26 featuring singer and pianist Tony DeSare, who was described by the New York Times as "two parts young Sinatra to one part Billy Joel, meshed seamlessly."
