“Music to your ears!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

The Houston Symphony hosted Pink Martini and it was fabulous! The sound quality in the venue was perfect, the skill of the musicians outstanding. Neither outshown the other, they brought meaning to the phrase, "in concert". Everything about this experience was first rate. I look forward to the Christmas season

“The Pops are my favorite. Good music in a contemporary vein.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

Different performers and excellent presentation. Some performances are more to my liking than others but I have never been disappointed. The Symphony is excellent and the Pop's conductor always makes it a fun evening.

“Symphony Pops pop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

Houston has a world-class symphony, but we really like the Symphony Pops performances conducted by Michael Krejowski. You get a terrific mix of classical music with popular, more current favorites - lots of guest artists, singers, dancers, etc. We have been season ticket holders for years, and I can't imagine giving up my tickets anytime soon. They always seem to come up with different and exciting programs. One of our favorite activities.

“Just amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

We love Houston Symphony; so many good memories, from Senatra reenactment to Broadway musicle pieces. Do not discard it as too serious - they know how to "have fun" with the audience. It has a beautiful repertoir and each season you will find a couple of shows that would be age appropriate and sufficiently entertaining to introduce the entire family to the Symphony.

“Pops Series Cirque de la Symphonie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Nice different performance. Great performers although I'm partial to the classic series of concerts and generally stay away from the pops series.
