COVID-19 Concert Update

We hope that you are all staying healthy as we navigate through the new normal that the Corona virus has created. To help keep all of us safe we will need to postpone our 5/10 MITS Charity concert at the Steinway Performance Center supporting MECA once more. We will be performing together after this situation clears up. This concert will happen!

Please stay in touch with us by visiting our website at and our Facebook page where we are always adding material created and shared by our musicians, including quarantine home videos, past recordings and more.

Email notifications with the new date for this program will be posted and sent out when things settle down in our community.

    Interplay - Musicians of the Houston Symphony

    Interplay - Musicians of the Houston Symphony - seeks to develop personal interaction between the residents of the Greater Houston area and the Houston Symphony Orchestra musicians in order to enrich the cultural and artistic experience for both.

    Since 2010 Interplay has presented the popular "Music in the Sky" series of chamber music concerts performed by Houston Symphony musicians and friends. The concert series is held at its home, The Live Oaks Friends Meeting in the Houston Heights. Until 2016 concerts were at the Chase Tower Sky Lobby in downtown Houston.

    In 2018 Interplay developed a new initiative - a yearly fund raising concert for another charity. The inaugural concert was titled "A Celebration of Women" and was held at the Steinway Selection Center in downtown Houston. It benefited Angela House. The 2018/19 MITS Charity Concert recipient was The YMCA Children's Academy at Wisdom High School.

    The 2019/20 MITS Charity Concert recipient will be Multicultural Education and Counseling through the Arts (MECA) in Houston.

    Donations received by M.O.T.H.S. are used for projects that will have a lasting impact on music in our community. A small portion of donations go toward the expense of facilitating these concerts. M.O.T.H.S. is a qualified 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization.

    All of the musicians donate their time and professional services to organize and perform for these events.

    How does Music in the Sky work?

    "Music in the Sky", the popular concert series brought to you by the Musicians of the Houston Symphony is celebrating its third season at the Live Oaks Friends Meeting in the Houston Heights.

    The concerts, performed by members of the Houston Symphony with the James Turrell Meeting House installations as a centerpiece, create musical synergy with a visual ambiance. The audience is limited to the first 100 RSVPs, allowing the listeners to experience music making in an up-close, unique setting, as well as to interact with the performers. Together, audience and performers foster an enriching cultural and artistic adventure.

    There is a waitlist for those who RSVP after the first 100 people. Unclaimed seats will be released 5 minutes in advance of the concert. Those on the waitlist can then fill the unclaimed seats, first come, first served. You must RSVP and bring your waitlist ticket to the concert.

    Our programs include approximately an hour's worth of music, with ample time before, between, and after the performances for questions and audience interaction with the musicians. There is no entry fee, although a suggested donation of $15.00 to help support The Musicians of the Houston Symphony, Inc. projects will be accepted online or at the door.

    Please note that filling out the RSVP and donating to Interplay are two different things. Our web site is set up so that you can do both at once, or separately, for your convenience - however, a donation to Interplay is not a RSVP to a concert, and will not mean that your position on any waitlist will be improved. All monies raised through donation to Interplay are used for Houston Symphony projects that will have a lasting impact on live classical music in our community.
