Houston Symphony gets audience movin’ and shakin’ at San Jacinto College Central
The Houston Symphony had audience members doing the Time Warp and other popular dance moves this week during the "Gotta Dance!" summer concert at San Jacinto College Central.
The Symphony performed a variety of musical numbers from such productions as "Carmen," "The Rocky Horror Picture Show," and "West Side Story," under the direction of associate conductor Robert Franz. College faculty, staff, and students were invited, as well as the general public. Four-year-old Trinity Bosley (pictured) and her two-year-old sister, Raylee Bosley, both enjoyed dancing to the Symphony’s energetic music alongside their mother, Jennifer Bosley of Pearland.
San Jacinto College has partnered with the Houston Symphony for the past two years to bring performances to all three SJC campuses. Students, employees, donors, and friends gathered at Jones Hall in February to celebrate the partnership's second year, while also raising funds for the "Promise For Their Future" Scholarship Initiative that provides scholarships to students interested in the arts and sciences.
