The Houston Symphony performed its first concert in 1913. The 35-piece orchestra was sponsored by Houston-based philanthropist Ima Hogg. Led by its first conductor, Julien Paul Blitz, the orchestra enjoyed a five-year run before disbanding in 1918 due to budget constraints. Twelve years later, the Houston Symphony was revived. This time, they were led by acclaimed conductor Uriel Nespoli, who specializes in Italian opera. Over the following decades, despite a few challenges, the symphony continued to perform and expand. In 2001, the symphony was joined by esteemed music director Hans Graf who spent his tenure with the company for twelve years. This year, Houston Symphony welcomes its new conductor, Juraj Valčuha.
Aside from paid concerts such as “A Night of Broadway,” Houston Symphony aims to make its music available to everyone. One of Houston Symphony’s missions is to spread top-tier music to greater Houston. Through Houston Symphony’s community concerts, music lovers can enjoy experiencing the company’s amazing performances for free in various venues, including the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. The community concerts are conducted by assistant conductor Yue Bao.
