HOUSTON SYMPHONY PAYS TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE ON THE PAVILION MAIN STAGE JULY 16
The Woodlands, Texas – Celebrate the music of rock legend David Bowie in this exhilarating musical tribute sponsored by Huntsman! The Houston Symphony will return to The Pavilion Main Stage on Monday, July 16 for an evening honoring Bowie’s life and featuring a variety of his classic hits! Tickets for the 8 p.m. performance are $20 for reserved orchestra seating. Mezzanine and lawn seating are free. Gates open at 7 p.m.
David Bowie’s unique life and musical sensibilities provide a wide range of different sounds and elements that’s quite different from what Windborne has done in the past. Bowie’s influence abounds within not only the rock community, such as his work with Queen and John Lennon, but also crosses into multiple genres including his work with Pat Metheny or his contribution to a soundtrack with Giorgio Moroder. The evening will be conducted by Brent Havens and will feature vocalist and recording artist Tony Vincent.
Pre-performance activities will begin at 7 p.m. in the North Plaza and include The Pavilion Partners arts & crafts booth and Instrument Petting Zoo as well as activations by Fidelity, Renewal by Andersen, Tommy Bahama and Woodforest National Bank.
