The Houston Symphony and Principal POPS Conductor Steven Reineke open the 2021–22 Season with two sensational programs at Jones Hall: the Bank of America POPS program, Once Upon a Time: Alan Menken’s Broadway, Sept. 3–5.
Once Upon a Time: Alan Menken’s Broadway, Sept. 3–5, celebrates the music of eight-time Academy Award-winning and eleven-time Grammy Award-winning composer Alan Menken, best known for his scores and songs that ushered in the Disney Renaissance era. Reineke and the orchestra are joined by Broadway vocalists Matt Doyle and Montego Glover, Houston native Katie Rose Clarke, and Jordan Donica, who currently is seen on the CW’s Charmed series. The program features hits from musicals like Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors, Aladdin, Newsies, and more. The Saturday, Sept. 4, 8 p.m. CT performance is also available for livestream.
Audiences attending this family-friendly performance in person are encouraged to dress as their favorite Disney Renaissance character.
