Toy Story Live in Concert sponsored by Texas Children’s Hospital The Woodlands kicked off summer at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on Thursday, June 1. The Houston Symphony presented Toy Story in Concert featuring a screening of the groundbreaking complete film with Oscar® and Grammy®-winning composer Randy Newman’s musical score performed live to the film.

Pre-show activities began at 7 p.m. and included photo opportunities, an arts & crafts booth, themed games, an instrument petting zoo, and sponsor activations.

The Toy Story films are beloved worldwide for their compelling characters, extraordinary storytelling, stunning visuals and the music of Randy Newman. The composer and songwriter is behind signature songs including “You’ve Got a Friend in Me,” “Strange Things” and “I Will Go Sailing No More.” Children of all ages in the audience were delighted as pull-string cowboy Woody and astronaut action figure Buzz Lightyear grew from enemies battling for the attention of their owner Andy to comrades who joined forces.
