The Houston Symphony Presents SYMPHONIC SPECTACULAR! SEE THE MUSIC with Host Victor Garber, 5/23-25

The Houston Symphony announced that Hollywood veteran Victor Garber will host the Centennial season-ending Pops weekend, Symphonic Spectacular! See the Music, on May 23, 24 and 25. The recognizable Garber has appeared in multiple popular television programs and movies including the current "Sleepy Hollow" and "The Good Wife" along with the award-winning spy drama from the early 2000s "Alias" with actress Jennifer Garner. His film credits include Argo, Legally Blonde, Titanic and many others.

In May, Garber will guide Houston Symphony audiences through Symphonic Spectacular! See the Music, acting as host and narrator for a unique concert experience that will blend high-definition video, stills and animation with the world's most beloved symphonic music. Images ranging from nature to outer space, and everything in between, will be enhanced by stunning lights and theatrical effects, while accompanied by thrilling musical works including "1812 Overture" and "Flight of the Bumblebee." As the creative brainchild of Houston Symphony Principal Pops Conductor Michael Krajewski and Producer Elliott Forrest, the concert's music and imagery provide an experience that is at times stirring, poignant, hilarious and inspiring.

The concert weekend was originally announced in January 2013 with actress Sigourney Weaver as host. However in March 2014, Weaver was called to duty in a new film project that conflicted with the Houston dates.
