Live from Jones Hall: Great Women Composers: Esmail, Price & Smyth


In this livestream performance, we’re shining a spotlight on extraordinary women composers, past and present. The program starts with music of Reena Esmail, whose compositions have been hailed as “crystal clear, beautiful, thought-provoking, and unlike anything I’ve ever heard before” (Los Angeles Times). Then, hear Florence Price’s exuberant String Quartet in A minor and Ethel Smyth’s Songs for Mezzo-Soprano, featuring internationally acclaimed, Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor.

Since you can’t come to us right now, let us deliver world class live performances to you! In our ongoing classical livestream series, musicians from the Houston Symphony take the stage at Jones Hall in downtown Houston, presenting an engaging mix of treasured favorites and new works to discover, performed in small, socially distanced ensembles.
