Anytime James Gaffigan is conducting is great. So charismatic so much energy don't get me wrong the orchestra is great too. The oboe horns harp just beautiful. I went twice to the same concert.

As always a wonderful evening with a variety of music all composed for piano. Fun popular songs and the classics Rhapsody in Blue... well done, Houston Symphony

The show overall was ok. We felt as though a Rolling Stones "cover band" stole the show from the Symphony players. The show would have been so much better if the camera operator would have at least caught on camera, to show on the big...More

Such a wonderful feeling being taken back to my childhood watching Indiana Jones movies. I got to see the movie and a live performance of the score on my birthday!
