Houston’s Must-Attend Music Shows

A Quick Weekend Concert Guide

BY Ashley McElmurry // 11.14.15

It’s that time of the week when we cross off the to-do’s on our lists and enjoy some leisure. It’s a chilly weekend in Houston, so there is no better way to keep warm than sitting inside listening to music. Here are two shows for your consideration.


Tosca @ Brown Theater, Wortham Theater Center, 7:30 pm

Sung in Italian with projection in English, Tosca is a story of deceit set in Rome during one of history’s most turbulent times. The Chicago and Houston co-production is a story of heartbreak, trust and betrayal.


Dvorák’s Serenado for Strings @ Jones Hall, 8 pm
