Houston Symphony "Opening Night with Andrés" Concert and Gala
Saluting the official start of his inaugural season, Andrés Orozco-Estrada leads the opening night concert with Alison Balsom, British trumpeter extraordinaire and recipient of the 2013 Gramophone Awards Artist of the Year title.
The concert opens with Mozart's Overture to The Marriage of Figaro. Balsom performs Haydn's Trumpet Concerto, and the night concludes with Pictures at an Exhibition, Mussorgsky's 10-movement suite, in a brilliant orchestration by Maurice Ravel. The evening continues with elegance and Columbian festive fun at a black-tie dinner and dance at The Corinthian, featuring cuisine by Jackson and Company and the sounds of the Richard Brown Orchestra.
