This summer at The Pavilion, more than 100 gifted musicians from around the world are showcased in a free concert with a German flare. In conjunction with the Immanuel and Helen Olshan Texas Music Festival, an intensive four-week study program at the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music that allows young musicians from all parts of the world to perform together and compete against one another, the Texas Music Festival Orchestra takes the stage June 22. These Orchestral Fellows are advanced students and young professional musicians. Under the direction of Lavard Skou-Larsen, these young artists perform Richard Strauss’s “Death and Transfiguration,” Op. 24, and Brahms’ Symphony No. 3. The finalists and winner of the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Young Artist Competition will be announced and the winner showcased in a solo performance that evening. Join us in supporting and celebrating these talented young artists.
Starting at 7 p.m., enjoy German music and dancing in the North Plaza sponsored by Fidelity Investments, Century 21 Realty Group and Renewal by Andersen, and authentic German food, including bratwurst with sauerkraut, pretzels and German beer, available for purchase at the concession stands. Enjoy other plaza activities by The Pavilion Partners, Woodforest National Bank, Renewal by Andersen and Audi of America, official automobile of The Pavilion. Get insight into the evening’s program with Pavilion Talk, a free pre-concert discussion led by noted music scholar and former college professor Ira J. Black from 7:15-7:45 p.m. The first 500 guests to enter the gates receive a free T-shirt as a souvenir!
