Houston Symphony will present a concert highlighting the brass, winds, and percussion sections in Music at Miller: Romeo and Juliet, Piazzolla & More.

Ting Tsung and Wei Fong Chao Foundation Conducting Fellow Yue Bao opens the program with two short works: a two-minute Fanfare for brass choir from Dukas’s "La péri," and "Red Clay & Mississippi Delta" for wind quintet, a blues-inspired chamber music work by Valerie Coleman.

The program continues with Tielman Susato’s "Renaissance-era Susato Suite" for brass and percussion, Richard Strauss’s melodic and lyrical "Serenade in E-flat major, Op. 7 for 13" wind instruments, and a wind octet arrangement by Andreas Tarkmann to excerpts from Prokofiev’s "Suite from Romeo and Juliet, Opus 64," one of ballet’s greatest scores.

Lastly, Bao concludes the evening’s program with Astor Piazzolla’s rhythmic and tango-inspired "Suite from Maria de Buenos Aires" arranged for brass by Steven Verhelst.
