What: Houston Symphony's Young Professionals Backstage symphony concert and after-party.

Where: The concert in Jones Hall and the after-party at the new Houston Club.

The 411: With the powerful sounds of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 still dancing in their heads, more than 150 YPBs took to the dance floor at the Houston Club where DJ Squincy presented music of a totally different ilk.

The lively late night party for the fresh-faced symphony lovers included a flip-book photo booth, party foods and four open bars featuring beer, wine and spirits donated by Circulo Tequila and Brugal Rum. And then there were the greats views of downtown from the Houston Club's new 49th floor perch.

Symphony musicians joining the party included Adam Dinitz, oboe and English horn; Eric Larson, double bass; Matthew Roitstein, associate principle flute; Matthew Strauss, percussion; and Elise Wagner, bassoon.

Who: The YPBs included Kristin Kruse, Wesley Lotz, Juan Garcia, Allison Reid, Kristen Amundsen, Lauren Pearson, Aiesha Maxwell, Ben Sachs, Georgia Maxwell and Geoff Marolder.
