Amidst the hustle and bustle of the season, take an evening to slow it down a bit and emerge newly inspired. The Houston Symphony Orchestra and Chorus present the city's premiere performance of Handel's soaring work of faith. The 1741 masterpiece includes some of the most joyful and memorable music ever written and is the most performed choral work in the English language. With its powerful "Hallelujah" chorus, Messiah celebrates a timeless message of hope and renewal that resonates each Yuletide season. Charles Hausmann conducts the symphony, chorus and guest vocalists. Learn More
Houston first met Chinese piano phenomenon Yuja Wang in March 2008 when she stepped in at the last minute as the soloist for the Academy of St Martin in the Fields. She was a favorite of conductor Sir Neville Marriner, and she immediately became one of Houston's, too!
Three years later, Ms. Wang is back as a recitalist. She has become widely recognized for piano playing that combines the spontaneity and fearless imagination of youth with the discipline and precision of a mature artist. Regularly lauded for her controlled, prodigious technique, Wang’s command of the piano has been described as “astounding” and “superhuman.” The Washington Post called Yuja’s Kennedy Center recital debut “jaw-dropping.”
