YAC members are afforded exclusive opportunities to participate in musically-focused events that take place not only in Jones Hall, but also in the city’s most sought-after venues, private homes, and neighborhood social spots. From behind-the-scenes interactions with the musicians of the Houston Symphony to jaw-dropping private performances by world-class virtuosos, the Houston Symphony’s Young Associates Council offers incomparable insight and accessibility to the music and musicians that are shaping the next era of orchestral music.
