Featuring Eligh, an independent hip-hop artist known for genre experimentation, Alam Khan on the 25-stringed fretless instrument called the Isarod, and Salar Nader on the Indian drum known as the table, this dynamic trio from California create an epic tapestry of sound; presenting 16 songs of cinematic beauty. This performance is presented by Asia Society Texas Center.

Houston Symphony
Wagner & Beethoven 2
Jones Hall

Beyond epic in scale, dazzlingly mythological in scope, Wagner’s operas redefined the genre and changed the course of music forever. Feel the thrill of love and the fire of lust when preeminent conductor Marek Janowski leads the rich, resounding melodies of Tannhäuser and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. Filled with boundless vigor and bracing wit, Beethoven’s Second finds its composer at the outset of a new trail—one that he himself would blaze. Tickets at 713.224.7575 or

Silent Film with Rob Landes
"Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde"
The Grand Opera House in Galveston.

An annual Halloween tradition, Rob Landes reprises his specially created, totally improvised musical score for the showing of John Barrymore’s 1920 silent film classic, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Come in costume if you dare! Playing the dual roles of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Barrymore was hailed by a critic who praised his portrayal as “a thing of fine shadows and violent emotions.” Long before the age of digital sound and computerized special effects, silent film actors transported audiences to worlds of romance, comedy, adventure and horror without uttering a single word. Landes’s magical underscoring of this film will transport you! More info at
