Guests enjoyed an outer-space adventure with the Houston Symphony at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion at the Blast Off to Space performance on Thursday, September 14, 2023. The action-packed show, sponsored by Insperity, featured iconic music from Star WarsE.T.The Planets and more – from the moon to Mars and beyond, the event transported everyone’s imagination to a galaxy far, far away.

In partnership with Conroe Independent School District, The Pavilion’s Hats Off to Reading celebration was a FREE and festive literacy event that began at 5:30 p.m. and encouraged early reading by offering various literacy-based activities such as games, visiting with characters, making reading pointers, storytelling time and more. Children also had the opportunity to choose and take home a free book. During the event, author and former NASA spacesuit technician Sharon Caples McDougle read her 2021 picture book, Suit Up for Launch with Shay!


Pre-performance activities in the North Plaza began at 6:30 p.m. and included a space themed art project and fun games, making music at the Instrument Petting Zoo and sponsor activations.

Mezzanine and lawn seating are free for all of The Pavilion’s performing arts events. Tickets for most performances are $25 for orchestra seating. Guests are welcome to bring a picnic from home or their favorite restaurant to enjoy in their seat or on the hill. Keep in mind that beverages cannot be brought into The Pavilion and picnics must also comply with The Pavilion’s bag size restriction and/or be in original packaging.
