We look forward to keeping this program in our season by moving the dates to May 21-31, which were originally held for our From Houston to the World program. Current tickets holders for these performances can expect immediate communications via email for further information about the canceled program dates, March 12-22.  As our city knows hardship intimately, we take great pride in our team’s preparedness to support our fellow Houstonians as we navigate what’s next."
