Hi Gang,

If you are interested in going to see Beethoven's 7th at 8pm on Thursday, January 30th at Jones Hall, let us know.

Afterwards, we can grab a bite to eat at Birrapetti's if you are game.

Description:
It captivated listeners so completely when first premiered that an immediate, mid-symphony encore was demanded. More than Protected content later, from Hollywood to the concert hall, the bewitching “Allegretto” from Beethoven’s Seventh speaks to the heart just as intently—vast, brooding midnight amidst a Symphony of sunny exuberance and surging high spirits. Kirill Gerstein kindles enough piano pyrotechnics to light up all of Texas with Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and Totentanz (“Dance of Death”).

Also, if you are interested, we can also do a special chamber music performance by Houston Symphony musicians on the Jones Hall stage starting 45 minutes before the concert. The first people to arrive will be given the opportunity to sit onstage for the prelude performance. Those interested should line up outside the Jones Hall main entrance on the Louisiana Patio near the first door on the right before doors open, 1 hour before the concert

Hope to see you then!

James
