Presented by Houston Symphony
Filled with virtuoso fireworks and tender beauty, it’s little wonder Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto ranks among the best loved in the repertoire. International superstar James Ehnes joins the Houston Symphony in Jones Hall, and also performs Vaughan Williams’s transcendent The Lark Ascending. The Symphony’s strings perform Philip Herbert’s poignant Elegy, dedicated as a reflection on racial injustices, past and present.
Before the concert: Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero hosts Prelude discussion live on Zoom. Ticket holders get a link to learn more about the musicians and the night’s repertoire.
