Houston Pops Presents
Renee Elise Goldsberry
Jones Hall for the Performing Arts

Friday 9/6/2019 8:00 PM

Houston native Renee Elise Goldsberry makes her way to Jones Hall for the Performing Arts with the back drop of Houston's Symphony Pops this weekend.

It was on a stage that Renée’s career got its start, right here in Houston. “I was raised in Houston, and I always come home once or twice a year,” she proudly proclaimed. “I went to Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart and Spring Branch Middle School. I was baptized at Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church, and I’ve spent every New Year’s Eve and birthday in Houston for as long as I can remember.”

The Houston International Theater School (HITS) first set Renée on her theatrical path. “That’s where I fell in love with Broadway. When I was 8 years old, I was in Guys and Dolls, in the chorus in the back with a bunch of other kids,” she said. The same year, Houston Grand Opera came looking for child performers. “They needed a children’s company. They auditioned over at HITS, and my brother and I got to be the little urchin children in Carmen. We were the kids onstage eating oranges.”
