Our front row box seats have provided us with countless magnificent performances for so many years. My wife and I started farther back and advanced toward the stage over time. Our next door neighbor is a principal instrument player - so, so talented but at the same time a regular down to earth guy. The entire orchestra is very highly... More

We have been to several performances of the Houston Symphony and it was always a great experience. We also enjoy the performances they have for younger children such as the Christmas special 'The Night Before Christmas' where they explain the instruments used by the orchestra and read the Christmas story. There is an entire series of family performance with music... More

The orchestra is professional and consistently turns out a good product. I love the movie nights, and the kids enjoy the video game music. My kids grew up with Han Graf and now enjoy the talents of Andres Estrada.

Looking forward to more concerts here. The only down side - restrooms are located on one side of the hall and since the building is old, they haven't added any more. Be ready for a... More

It is a great experience for children at a young age. The music is wonderful and all of the conductors are very talented at third job. I would recommend.

I've had the good fortune of attending several of the Houston Symphony's movie nights where the orchestra plays the score of the movie and the project the movie on the backdrop. We thoroughly enjoyed the performances and would highly recommend seeing their next offering. Parking is available at the underground garage across the street from Jones hall. Bring cash, they...
