Yue Bao leads the strings of the Houston Symphony in Music at Miller: Mozart, Holst & More. The program opens with China-born, American-composer Chen Yi’s piece "Shuo for String Orchestra" followed by Mozart’s lively and joyous three-movement "Divertimento in D major for Strings, K.136" and Elgar’s "Serenade in E minor, Opus 20," a Romantic-era string work, full of dancelike character.

Then, the program continues with contemporary composer Jessie Montgomery’s one-movement work titled "Starburst," which combines exploding dynamics and gentle melodies to create a multidimensional musical landscape. The evening concludes with a string arrangement of the high-spirit and energetic "Jupiter" movement from The Planets by Gustav Holst.
