Texas Music Festival showcases musicians from around the world

and some of the events are FREE to attend!

HOUSTON – The Texas Music Festival, held at the University of Houston, is one of the nation’s premier summer training programs for classical musicians. It’s a three-week, intensive program for musicians worldwide where they learn advanced performance techniques and work under some of the great soloists and conductors.

And this year, a new competitive event called the Mitchell-Hogg Young Artist Competition will give young musicians their chance to compete in a solo performance with the festival orchestra on the last day of the concert (June 24). Plus, the winner will also receive opportunities to play with the Houston Symphony next season. This competitive event is open to the public. See them compete on Sunday, June 11.
