A champagne reception at The Corinthian starts the evening; guests are then transported to Jones Hall for the Opening Night Concert where Andrés Orozco-Estrada, Music Director of the Houston Symphony, will conduct an unforgettable performance of Prokofiev’s enduring classic, Peter and the Wolf narrated by Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley. Also on the program are Rossini’s effervescent Overture to The Thieving Magpie and Strauss’ timeless Suite from Der Rosenkavalier.

After the concert, the celebration continues at The Corinthian with a black-tie dinner by Jackson and Company, and dancing the night away at the Opening Night Gala Chaired by Ralph Burch.

All proceeds benefit the Houston Symphony’s Education and Community Programming.
