Music in Motion 2017 The Houston Symphony + The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion

Music in Motion puts stellar artists from The Houston Symphony and rising classical music students from our area in the same room. The results are amazing.

Music in Motion's main goal is to train area students in preparation for All-State competitions. These students are already impressive musicians playing at a high level. With a few pointers from generous and patient members of The Houston Symphony, they'll go even farther.

In addition to their fantastic skill as musicians, these Houston Symphony members have a clear knack for teaching. We loved watching them guide students towards their goal - patiently, yes, but with tenacity and focus as well. Students were excited to follow.
We were also impressed by the dedication of these students. It's not everyday that you see highschoolers up early on a Saturday morning to hone their craft. This is a special bunch - we love that we get to play a small role in developing their already outstanding talent.
The All-State Music Competition selects around 1700 students from a pool of over 64,000 for the right to perform in one of fifteen ensembles (https://www.tmea.org/programs/all-state). To earn the honor of performing in one of these ensembles is a big deal to students - Music in Motion helps them get one step closer to their goal.

Music in Motion aligns directly with The Pavilion's Mission to provide training and performance opportunities for young artists - we're thankful that we have such a phenomenal partner in The Houston Symphony to help make that happen.
