2018 Texas Music Festival “Cosmic Beginnings” Opening Night Concert
Saturday, June 9, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$15 – $25
The Immanuel and Helen Olshan Texas Music Festival Orchestra Series will lift off Saturday, June 9 (TMF Week 1) with a soaring double feature of Strauss: Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30 (think of the movie soundtrack of the iconic film, “2001: A Space Odyssey,” which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year) and the seven-movement The Planets, under the baton of TMF Music Director & Chief Conductor Franz Anton Krager. “This space-theme music program is a first for TMF and so fitting for our Space City,” said Krager, the Hourani Endowed Professor of Music, Director of Orchestras, and Chair of the Conducting Department at UH Moores School of Music.
