ABOUT THIS CONCERT

“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.” —Ludwig van Beethoven

Where words fail, music speaks. Come together in Jones Hall for a concert that celebrates the courage, resilience and enduring strength of the human spirit. Featuring text by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz, Jimmy López’ unforgettable Dreamers shines a spotlight on the immigrant experience. An all-star cast including actor Damon Gupton and opera star Ana María Martínez joins the Houston Symphony. Shades of “Ode to Joy” echo throughout Beethoven’s resounding Choral Fantasy, which inspires and uplifts with its timeless message of unity, peace and hope.
