    Summer Symphony Nights:  Beethoven’s Fifth Plus Rhapsody in Blue

    The Houston Symphony, and Miller Outdoor Theatre present Summer Symphony Nights:  Beethoven’s Fifth Plus Rhapsody in Blue.  For more than 60 years, the Houston Symphony has brought the thrill of live performances to patrons at Miller Outdoor Theatre.

    The ExxonMobil Summer Symphony Nights series at Miller Outdoor Theatre features new guest conductors and popular classical pieces like Beethoven and Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphonies and Leonard Bernsteins’ Symphonic Dances from West Side Story. Concluding the series will be the Symphony’s annual 4th of July concert, Start Spangled Salute, featuring the 1812 Overture complete with booming cannons and a fireworks display.
