ExxonMobil Summer Symphony Nights

In the first ten years after graduating from the Saint Petersburg Conservatory in 1865 Tchaikovsky completed three symphonies. After that he started five more symphony projects, four of which led to a completed symphony premiered during the composer's lifetime.
The fifth symphony was composed in 1888, between the Manfred Symphony of 1885 and the sketches for a Symphony in E-flat, which were abandoned in 1892 (apart from recuperating material from its first movement for an Allegro Brillante for piano and orchestra a year later). As for the numbered symphonies, Tchaikovsky's 5th symphony was composed between the 4th, which had been completed ten years earlier, and the 6th, composed 5 years later, in the year of the composer's death.
This weekend at Miller Outdoor Theater Houston's Philharmonic will present Tchaikovsky's 5.
Nicholas Hersh, conductor
John Parker, trumpet
THEOFANIDIS Rainbow Body
BÖHME/FOSS Trumpet Concerto
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 5
One of the best loved symphonies of all time takes center stage as the Houston Symphony performs Tchaikovsky’s impassioned Fifth, a soul-searching journey of brooding melancholy, aching beauty, and final triumph. The Houston Symphony’s own John Parker dazzles in Böhme’s romantic concerto. Plus, immerse yourself in the shimmering orchestral colors of Theofanidis’ Rainbow Body.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM.

Sugar Land native Jackson Gay's directorial redition of "The Cake" continues its run at the Alley Theatre.

The play revolves around a gay couple in North Carolina planning their wedding, but when it comes to their cake. The local baker refuses to make their wedding cake based on her religious beliefs.
"The goal, I suppose, of our production is to get people talking," said the director, Jackson Gay as told to CW39.
