A Valentine's Day surprise: Houston Symphony is putting on a free last-minute concert
Houston's weather may be playing nice just in time for Valentine's Day. But over yonder in the Yankeelands of the Northeast, Cupid must be suffering from a broken heart as snow storms continue to wreck havoc with the travel plans of many, including Linda Eder, the Houston Symphony's scheduled headlining star for a Friday night concert.
Eder and her bandies aren't able to fly to Houston, but that doesn't mean that Houston Symphony officials are satisfied with cancelling this Valentine's Day event. The Houston Symphony, with support from Spec's Wines, Spirits and Finer Foods, is turning the other cheek and showing southern hospitality love.
Eder previously scheduled program will be replaced with Vivaldi's The Four Seasons featuring concertmaster Frank Huang. The Jones Hall concert is free, non-ticketed, with seating available on a first come, first served basis. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for the 7:30 p.m. performance.
As for Linda Eder's appearance with the Houston Symphony, the concert has been rescheduled for May 29.
