ExxonMobil Summer Symphony Nights June 23-24 & 30, July 1 & 4

Bringing the sights and sounds of Houston's symphony, these family-friendly concerts introduce rising guest artists to Houston audiences while delighting with classic compositions.

Ben Gernon, conductor
George Li, piano

GLINKA  Overture to Ruslan and Ludmila
TCHAIKOVSKY  Piano Concerto No. 1
MENDELSSOHN  Symphony No. 1

Miller audiences are in for a treat when Tchaikovsky Competition Silver Medalist George Li performs Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with the BBC Philharmonic’s new Principal Guest Conductor, Ben Gernon. From its thunderous opening chords to its soaring finale, this deeply emotive work has become the most popular piano concerto in history. The program begins with a lively overture by one of Tchaikovsky’s musical idols and concludes with Mendelssohn’s precocious Symphony No. 1, written when its composer was just 15 years old.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1:00 PM, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The shows goes on rain or shine.

Produced by Houston Symphony
