Houston Symphony Concert Benefits UST
1/9/2013

Houston Symphony Concert Benefits USTTo bring the University closer to realizing its vision for enhancing the visual and performing arts for the campus and the Houston community, the University of St. Thomas will partner with the world-renowned Houston Symphony to perform the New Vision, New Stars Benefit Concert at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 22 at Jones Hall in the Houston Theater District. Guest conductor, AndreyBoreyko will conduct Stravinsky’s Suite from “The Firebird,” Ravel’s “Pavane” and Mussorgsky/Ravel’s “Pictures at an Exhibition.”

Thanks to an initial grant from The Alkek Williams Foundation, Studio Red Architects has completed a design for the exterior of the Performing Arts Center which will occupy a block of University campus. Funds raised from this year’s concert will support the interior design of the Performing Arts Center.

Mark Hanson, executive director and CEO of the Houston Symphony, said the Houston Symphony is thrilled to be supporting St. Thomas' campaign for a new performing arts center on its campus.

“While we are incredibly proud of Houston's dynamic arts scene, the Houston Symphony believes future growth of this important sector and of the city as a whole will be enhanced through the construction of this state of the art performance venue and the continued development of UST's fine and performing arts offerings,” he said.

Event chairs are Jes and John Hagale. The event will honor Beth Madison, who gives generously of herself to countless organizations in Houston. She sits on boards for the Houston Symphony, The Houston Grand Opera, the Alley Theatre, the Houston World Affairs Council, The Foundation for Teen Health, Trees for Houston and the Board of Trustees for the University of Houston Moores School of Music. She is also a past board member for the Greater Houston Preservation Alliance and Opera in the Heights.
