HOUSTON (Feb. 11, 2019) – Just in time for the start of Houston’s rodeo season, the Houston Symphony saddles up with the Western-inspired family program Wild, Wild West at 10am and 11:30am on Saturday, Feb. 16 at Jones Hall, featuring students from the Theatre Under the Stars’ (TUTS) Humphreys School of Musical Theatre and from TUTS’ The River Performing and Visual Arts Center.

Houston families with children and babies of all ages are invited to join Associate Conductor Robert Franz on a wild, Western adventure, filled with musical classics invoking America’s Wild West, like Aaron Copland’s “Hoedown,” Rossini’s William Tell Overture and fun favorites from Toy Story 2, Oklahoma! and more.

Franz and the orchestra welcome children from TUTS’ Humphreys School of Musical Theatre, as well as TUTS’ The River Performing and Visual Arts Center, an organization that provides arts access and education to children with disabilities, to share the stage.

The Wild, Wild West sponsored by BBVA Compass program takes place at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, 615 Louisiana Street, in Houston’s Theater District.
