DHS Encore Choir performing in three concerts with Houston Symphony

Courtesy of Houston Symphony Dawson High School’s Encore Choir will experience a dream come true this May, performing live with the Houston Symphony during three final family concerts of the 2015-16 season.

DHS students will perform the suite from “The Little Mermaid” during Dreams Can Come True concerts at two venues:
  • Thursday, May 5: 7:30 p.m. at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion
  • Saturday, May 7: 10 and 11:30 a.m. at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts
The program will also include pieces such as “When You Wish Upon a Star,” “The Comedians” by Kabalevsky and the scherzo from Mendelssohn’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

In addition, audiences will hear the world premiere performance of “This Is the Dream,” written and sung by a leukemia patient and a long-term leukemia survivor.

The DHS Encore Choir is directed by Roxan Silva.
