The Houston Symphony’s 2023 to 2024 season brings a wide range of spectacular events. One of the most unique and highly-anticipated shows is the Cirque de la Symphonie. This one-of-a-kind show is made possible by the generous support of the George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion Concerts Fund. Moreover, the Houston Symphony Endowment also made this show highly accessible to all types of music lovers.
Since its emergence in 1913, the Houston Symphony has been steadfast in its goal of making classical music accessible to the public. For over a hundred years, the organization has performed countless concerts in North America. The symphony’s concerts in the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion are part of their mission to bring the beauty of classical music to everyday folk. The vast concert grounds make the concert a perfect family bonding activity. Over the last few decades, the Symphony has become one of America’s oldest and Texas Houston’s most prominent performing arts organizations.
In 2014, the symphony set a ten-year goal of becoming the “most relevant and accessible top-ten orchestras in the United States. The symphony continues its efforts to be inclusive and improve its reach to all types of audiences. The symphony performs for over half a million music lovers every year, while their low-cost events entertain up to over 200,000 people. Through their live and digital shows, the Houston Symphony can reach up to 1.3 million listeners yearly.
This 2023, the symphony features a new distinguished music director, Juraj Vulcuha. The acclaimed conductor has a long list of accomplishments and has done exemplary work in Italy and France. Last year, Vulcuha replaced former director Andres Orozaco-Estrada, who served the symphony for eight years. Vulcuha expressed his excitement in delivering the new season’s plethora of amazing concerts, “My first season with the Symphony will show the path I will take as music director, with programs that combine the great masterpieces of the Classical and Romantic periods with new and rarely performed works of the fantastic twentieth century. We will also devote some programs to choral works and an opera in concert. The wonderful Houston Symphony has tradition and a strong heritage, innovation, artistic energy, and creativity—all tools the orchestra and I have at our disposal to create great musical moments for the community. I cannot wait to get started!”
