In celebration of its 100th year anniversary, The Houston Symphony presents, Day of Music, a FREE 12-hour event that will have families grooving to different styles of music from Rock, Classical, Blues & more. The event will be held in downtown-Houston's theater district at Jones Hall. There will be over 30 performances on 5 different stages!
One of the featured performing guests is legendary Blues artist Milton Hopkins & The Hit City Blues Band. Milton Hopkins, who's cousin blues giant "Lightnin' Hopkins" was honored this past year with a Grammy lifetime hall-of-fame award, was spotted on Friday night, June 27, 2013 at Athens Lounge in downtown Houston at an event entitled, Motif'N Volume: The Eclecticism of PoetryXFashionXArtXMusic, created by Life's Aesthetics Group. He was able to mentor & give impromptu talent tips to local aspiring Soul & R&B artists. "Milton Hopkins, is a very kind & humble gentlemen, with the passing of Bobby Blue Bland, mentorship is important because it's about passing information on to the next generation", says Sandra Harper-Scott, Marketing Director of The Houston Blues Museum.
There will be plenty of hands-on activities for the whole family to enjoy, from Harmonica Clinics, an instrument petting zoo, crafts for kids & much more.
For all of you "foodies", brace yourself because some of Houston's top food trucks will be out to satiate your appetite!
