Inaugural Concert of the 2007-2008 Season
In Tribute to Children of War

The Inauguration Concert of the 2007-2008 Season "In Tribute to Children of War" was held on Saturday, December 8, 2007. This concert marks the conducting debut of Monzer Hourani, a member of the Virtuosi of Houston Board of Directors and a major benefactor of the organization. His passion for classical music and the training of young talent for the future of the art form is extraordinary. The dramatic impact that classical music made on his life as a young boy who suffered the loss of an immediate family member during a civil war is incredible and inspirational. Mr. Hourani is dedicating this performance in tribute to children throughout the world who have experienced war. Read the opening remarks.
