ExxonMobil Summer Symphony Nights: Schumann and Fancy Free

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.

ExxonMobil Summer Symphony Nights June 22-23 & 29-30, July 4

Kensho Watanabe, conductor (Ima Hogg Silver Medalist)

BERNSTEIN Three Dance Variations from Fancy Free
Concerto TBA
SCHUMANN Symphony No. 2

Three sailors on shore leave paint the town red in Bernstein’s brash, breezy music from the ballet Fancy Free. Composed during a time of personal hardship, Schumann’s noble and triumphant Second Symphony reminds us that we can overcome adversity through courage and resilience. This concert also affords the opportunity to hear the talented Silver Medalist from this year’s Ima Hogg Competition.

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.
