Free Concert: Houston Symphony Plays the Music of the Eagles – July 2

The gates open at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, located at 2005 Lake Robbins Drive, in the Woodlands north of Houston for The Music of the Eagles performed by the Houston Symphony. The classical sounds of the Houston Symphony turn into rock n’ roll with The Music of The Eagles July 2 at 8 p.m. at The Pavilion. Amplified by a full rock band and accompanied by singers Terry Brock, Randy Jackson and John Hines, creator Brent Havens guest conducts the ensemble as they capture The Eagles’ amazing vocal harmonies surrounded by the orchestra in a concert rich with melodies and lush harmonies like you’ve never heard before. Tickets are $20 for orchestra seating. Mezzanine and lawn seating are free courtesy of Insperity. Tickets are not required for free seating. Gates open at 7 p.m. The concert features 18 Eagles tunes, including “Heartache Tonight,” “Desperado,” “New Kid in Town,” “Witchy Woman,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Take it Easy,” “Best of My Love,” “Hotel California” and more. The symphonic rock hybrid has met with approval on both sides of the podium.

“My concept for The Music of The Eagles was to take the music as close to the originals as we could, keeping those wonderful harmonies intact and then add some colors to enhance what the original group had done,” said Brent Havens, conductor. “The wonderful thing with an orchesta is that you have an entire palette to call upon. The band is reproducing what the Eagles did on the albums, as closely as possible, and then having an orchestra behind the band gives the music a richness, a whole different feel, a greater sense of depth.” Mezzanine and lawn seats are free, while orchestra seats are $20.  The Woodlands will feature several other events for the holiday weekend. The 14th annual Red, Hot & Blue Festival will be from 6-10 p.m. July 4 at Town Green Park and Waterway Square, featuring hot dog and watermelon eating contests, live entertainment and more.
