Houston Music Highlights: Week of October 26th, 2015

A preview of the Houston Music Highlights airing on Classical 91.7 this week.


Be on the listen for Houston Music Highlights, Tuesday through Friday on Classical 91.7! These 6-minute highlights feature local musicians and ensembles such as the Houston Symphony, the Apollo Chamber Players, and numerous others each week. Houston Music Highlights air at 7 AM, and then repeat at 1 PM, 6 PM, and 10 PM.

This week's Highlights feature works fitting for Halloween: an original ballet score to a haunting Shakespeare classic, some scary-good piano playing from composer Pierre Jalbert, the eerie sounds of the science-fiction-y theremin, and the classic opening theme to Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
