Houston Symphony Announces HIP HOPPIN’ NUTCRACKER, 12/8

Celebrating the beginning of the Christmas season, the Houston Symphony led by Associate Conductor Robert Franz invites families to experience the Hip Hoppin' Nutcracker on December 8th. A new take on an age-old holiday tradition, the program will feature the fun and explosive dance routines of Westside High School's INERTIA Dance Company and a visit from Old Saint Nick himself. The program will close with an audience sing-along of classic holiday favorites including a performance of several spirited versions of "Sleigh Ride."

"Family concerts are the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning enjoying some of the greatest music ever written," said Franz. "For me, the idea of getting into my costume and introducing families, and especially kids, to the music that I love is a thrill. The Houston Symphony is best experienced live, and what better way to open up your child's world than with the sounds and sights of these incredible musicians."

Family Concerts are a fun-filled, interactive and educational concert series created for children and their families. Their concert experience will be enhanced through video projection screens that provide additional story support and enable them to see the orchestra in action. Come early before the 10am concert or stay late after the 11:30am concert to participate in exciting activities including an instrument petting zoo, arts and crafts and youth ensemble performances. For more ticket information, the Houston Symphony Patron Service Center in Jones Hall is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., by phone at (713) 224-7575 or online at www.houstonsymphony.org.
