The Houston Symphony and Discovery Green are joining forces to celebrate their birthdays with Tango and Tchaikovsky on Tuesday, April 22.

The authentically Argentinian evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with tango music by René Casarsa; tango lessons from The Argentine Tango School of Houston; free Malbec wine tastings from Spec’s; and tasty empanadas from Phoenicia.

Then at 7:30 p.m. on the Anheuser-Busch Stage, our very own Concertmaster Frank Huang will lead the Houston Symphony in its first performance at Discovery Green.  The program will feature Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla followed by Tchaikovsky’s romantic Serenade for Strings.

While we are celebrating our historic Centennial Season, Discovery Green is celebrating its 6th anniversary as downtown’s coolest gathering spot.  The two organizations share a mission to engage the Houston community with culture and entertainment through free offerings all year long. In addition to its regular performances at Jones Hall, the Symphony is committed to bringing live orchestral music to unique and accessible spaces all over the Houston metropolitan area including innovative parks like Discovery Green.

Before you go, check out some tango music by René Casarsa; fun facts about Malbec wines; and learn about the origins of the empanada.
