Come celebrate Hans Graf’s farewell season at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion May 10. The beloved maestro steps onto the stage for the last time as Music Director of the Houston Symphony. The Symphony’s 2012-13 season is Graf’s grand finale after 12 years at the helm of this world-renowned orchestra. The symphony performs Carl Maria von Weber’s Overture to “Euryanthe,” Frédéric Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2 and Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, “Eroica.” Special guest, Janina Fialkawska, joins the symphony on piano. Don't miss Pavilion Talk, a free pre-performance discussion led by noted music scholar Ira J. Black that provides insight into the evenings's program. Pavilion Talk takes place from 7:15-7:45 p.m. Other pre-concert activities in the North Plaza begin at 7 p.m.

Join us in celebrating Hans Graf's last performance for “A Toast to the Maestro,” a free wine tasting event provided by Hubbell & Hudson starting at 7 p.m. in the North Plaza (while supplies last).
