2013 Texas Music Festival Concert: "Festival Orchestra 2"

Thomas Campbell

"Festival Orchestra 2" welcomes back Horst Foerster, former conducting professor at the Berlin Music Academy, for Richard Strauss' Don Juan, a tone poem that tests the virtuosity of the whole string section and the lyricism of the oboe, clarinet and flute sections. Also on the program are Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in E Minor and a solo selection by the 2013 Cynthia Woods Mitchell Young Artist Competition winner.

An outdoor gathering that includes pre-concert amusements like performances by youngsters from Virtuosi of Houston, nibbles from local food trucks and lectures that serve as a listening guide to the programmed repertoire kicks off the concert at 6:30 p.m. Music starts at 7:30 p.m.
