Houston Symphony celebrates 100th b-day with free show
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The Houston Symphony celebrated its 100th birthday with a free concert Friday at Miller Outdoor Theater.
The first concert was held in the amphitheater that was in Hermann Park on June 21, 1913. Despite wars, depressions and oil busts, the symphony persevered because of public support that continues today.
The line to get in stretches around the park.
"I subscribe to the symphony downtown," said Marge Mayer, who we found in line. "This will be the symphony of a lifetime."
