Friday on The Front Row

Matthew Van Besien
We conclude our sequence of interviews leading up to Sunday's 13th annual Theater District Open House with a conversation with Matthew VanBesien, the Executive Director of the Houston Symphony. . .

VanBesien will share with us some of the highlights of the Orchestra's coming season and tell us about the sampler concert the Symphony will play in Jones Hall Sunday afternoon as its little extra-special offering during the Open House. . . 

Christen McArdle, the Executive Director of the Ann Arbor Film Festival, the country's oldest showcase for experimental, artist-made cinema, chats with us about what's new this year; the touring version of the Festival plays the Aurora Picture Show this weekend. . .

And we'll have a live performance by one of the city's "Necessary Angels," Houston-born folk-pop singer-songwriter Sara Hickman, back in town for an appearance at McGonigel's Mucky Duck.

Join us each weekday afternoon at 3:00 for an up-close look at the Houston are arts scene on The Front Row
