Houston Grand Opera

This family-friendly opera is based on the life of Marian Anderson, one of the most celebrated singers of the 20th century, who broke racial barriers throughout her storied career, becoming the first Black singer to perform at the Metropolitan Opera in 1955. This innovative fusion of opera and spoken word brings Marian’s brave journey to life through the eyes of present-day college student and community activist, Neveah. An HGO original commission, Marian’s Song, was created by two prominent Black artists, composer Damien Sneed and librettist Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton, Houston’s poet laureate emeritus.

Andrés Conducts Mozart, Beethoven
Andrés Orozco-Estrada conducts some of music’s all-time great overtures—dramatic and evocative curtain-raisers that capture us from the first note. Lust-filled, hell-bound lothario Don Giovanni comes to life in Mozart’s famed Overture, and Beethoven’s Egmont Overture offers a stirring journey from tragedy to triumph. Scotland so inspired Mendelssohn that he set his feelings to music in The Hebrides, which conjures imagery of breathtaking landscapes and sea-swept cliffs. The concerts close with Weber’s expressive and ultra-Romantic Der Freischütz Overture. Tickets at 713.224.7575 or www.houstonsymphony.org

For his fourth album, Keep ‘Em on They Toes, Brent Cobb is giving his songs the space they need to speak for themselves, a reflection of his own decision to write about the way he sees the world. “My last couple of albums have been about people and places, and I wanted this album to be about thoughts and feelings,” he says. At his core, Cobb still writes country songs, so there’s a continuity between Keep ‘Em on They Toes and past projects like 2016’s Shine on Rainy Day (a Grammy nominee for Best Americana Album) and 2018’s Providence Canyon.
Kendell Marvel wrote and recorded his new album, Solid Gold Sounds, in a matter of days, but it took a life time in country music to get there. Marvel and The Black Keys’ Auerbach co-wrote nine of the album’s 10 songs, drawing on the country sounds of the ‘70s as well as Marvel’s own experiences.
