What started as a single YouTube video aimed at giving hope and courage to bullied LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) teens has turned into a worldwide phenomenon with rally cries echoing the catchphrase "It gets better." Thousands of videos have flooded the internet from everyday people and celebrities like Stephen Colbert, Jane Lynch, Ellen DeGeneres, Margaret Cho, Tim Gunn, Kathy Griffin, Sarah Silverman, and even President Obama. Now the initiative takes to the stage in a nationwide tour, with music from the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles -- offering song and story as inspiration for LGBT youth and all those who suffer discrimination.

One of Russia’s musical treasures, the St. Petersburg Symphony was founded in the late 1960s with the intention of performing seldom-played opuses of different musical styles from all over the world. For nearly 20 years it did just that, and was known as the Orchestra of Ancient and Modern Music. By 1988, the Symphony’s repertoire expanded greatly and is now considered limitless as they perform music of every era, genre and style. Led by Principal Guest Conductor Vladimir Lande, the St. Petersburg Symphony’s Houston debut program will feature Weinberg’s_ Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes_ and piano soloist Xiayin Wang performing Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No.3.
