Zilkha Hall / Hobby Center For The Performing Arts

New Year’s Eve 2015 brings a star-studded evening with music that is by turns hot and cold. Vivaldi’s Winter sets the stage for Handel’s Apollo e Dafne, which tells the story of too-ardent love and a unique transformation. This very special evening at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts begins with dinner at 8:00 pm at Artista Restaurant and continues in Zilkha Hall with the Fire and Ice concert at 9:30 pm. Ars Lyrica Houston’s annual gala (with silent auction) extends the festivities past midnight at the exclusive Founders Room, so that you can ring in 2016 with us — at Houston’s most stylish New Year’s Eve event!
