Houston Symphony
Adams’ El Niño
@Jones Hall


Imagine Handel’s Messiah, updated for the 21st century. This is the starting point of John Adams’ El Niño, which combines mesmerizing music with biblical verse and the words of Spanish and Latin American poets—trailblazing women writers, both ancient and contemporary, in particular—for a unique and captivating account of the story of Christ’s birth. Featuring a stellar cast of soloists alongside the awe-inspiring forces of Symphony and Chorus, this is music that invites you to reflect: an immensely powerful and moving journey and a concert experience never to be forgotten.

“In a just world, one in which fame was proportionate to talent, Davóne Tines would be as big a name as Kanye West” proclaimed KQED following concerts given with the San Francisco Symphony.
