‘A Scheherazade Thanksgiving’ promises a world of adventure

This weekend, the Houston Symphony is offering the trip of a lifetime, and there’s no need to pack a suitcase.

Sail through crashing seas with Sinbad, waltz alongside the budding romance of two young royals and dance to the sprightly melody of a festival in Baghdad in the symphony’s “A Scheherazade Thanksgiving” at Jones Hall. The concert features Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade” alongside an interpretation of Shostakovich’s “Violin Concerto No. 1” by Grammy Award-winning violinist James Ehnes.
