May 19 Years of Service Awards and Season End Celebration

We will hold our year-end ceremonies on stage at Jones Hall after the first all Strauss concert on Friday, May 19. The Houston Symphony is hosting this thank you reception for chorus members, and it promises to be a special event!

Men singing Strauss: Please RSVP if you plan to attend (lists in hallway). This event is for chorus members only, not guests, so men singing Strauss may want to use their comp ticket for another night.

Women: You are invited to attend the Strauss concert that evening as the
guest of the Symphony. If you would like a comp ticket for this concert, please sign up on the lists in the hallway.

Women's tickets will be in individual envelopes at the Will Call window. Because the box office is handling this directly, if you have signed up to have tickets together, could you please re-sign and indicate in whose name the tickets should be held? And be sure that this information is clear: no vague arrows please!!
