|1 | HANDEL'S MESSIAH
December 15, 2016
Stephen Stubbs, conductor
Houston Symphony Chorus
Betsy Cook Weber, director
Celebrate Christmas with Houston’s premier performances of Handel’s Messiah. This timeless classic is brought to life through brilliant Baroque arias and rousing choruses. From “Ev’ry Valley” to the famed “Hallelujah” chorus, Handel’s Messiah is a true Houston Symphony holiday tradition.
|2 | BEETHOVEN 6 & 7
March 23, 2017
Andrés Orozco-Estrada, conductor
Beethoven: Symphony No. 6, Pastoral
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7
An exploration of nature, Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony evokes cheerful feelings upon arrival in the countryside and a harrowing storm which resolves in one of music’s most satisfying finales. Beethoven’s lively Seventh Symphony abounds with high spirits that surround a haunting second movement, featured in films such as The King’s Speech.
