One of the best loved symphonies of all time takes center stage as the Houston Symphony performs Tchaikovsky’s impassioned Fifth, a soul-searching journey of brooding melancholy, aching beauty, and final triumph. The Houston Symphony’s own John Parker dazzles in Böhme’s romantic concerto. Plus, immerse yourself in the shimmering orchestral colors of Theofanidis’ Rainbow Body.

This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM.
