Kaminari Taiko will join in the Day of Music at Jones Hall on Saturday, July 13. Come celebrate the Houston Symphony's 100th anniversary with a full day of free performances representing the diverse music of Houston.
This free 13-hour event will begin with a Houston Symphony family concert in the morning and end with a concert of favorite symphonic works. In between, on several different stages, hear jazz groups, rock and blues bands, ethnic ensembles, choral, classical music and more. Plus, sample some of Houston's finest food truck fare next door at Jones Plaza.
Plenty of activities will be available for the kids, including an instrument petting zoo, harmonica clinics and crafts. This come-and-go event is the perfect way to spend a summer Saturday with friends or family.
Kaminari Taiko will perform on the main stage at noon. We'll see you there!
