Texas Music Festival
The Pavilion enjoys a long-standing relationship with The University of Houston Moore's School of Music. Annually, The University sponsors the Texas Music Festival Orchestra. Music students from around the world send audition tapes, are selected, then come together in Houston to form an orchestra. These students not only work together, but also compete against each other throughout the Festival. The Festival culminates with a concert held at The Pavilion featuring the orchestra and winners of the competition. Each winner receives a Cynthia Woods Mitchell Medal, as well as a cash award.

The Pavilion Partners, the official volunteer organization of The Pavilion, awards fine arts scholarships each year to graduating high school seniors planning to major in the Fine Arts and renewal scholarships to past recipients studying Fine Arts in college.

These exceptional students were awarded their scholarships based on talent and academic performance. Scholarships were given to students in the following categories: vocal and instrumental music, theatre arts, dance and visual arts.

Fine Arts Education Day

Fine Arts Education Day: A David Dewhurst Symphony Explorer Concert featuring the Houston Symphony is an educational program that focuses on all fourth grade students from Conroe Independent School District. The program was created for students to experience orchestra music and learn about the various instruments in both band and orchestra. It is the hope of the program to create role models for these young people and offer encouragement to take band or orchestra when they are in fifth grade. Also, sixth grade band and orchestra students are invited to the concert, which serves as a reminder of where their studies in music can take them if they continue their pursuit of it in junior high school. The program helps students lean to listen actively and purposefully while giving them goals to strive for.

Young Talent Spotlight

Young Talent Spotlight is The Pavilion's ongoing effort to encourage the artists of tomorrow, local students and young "rising stars." They are given the opportunity to perform either on the Side Stage in the North Plaza prior to most performing arts events or on the Main Stage of The Pavilion. Young Talent Spotlight showcases their talents in special programs designed for this purpose. These young performers range from dance troupes, chamber string orchestras and choirs to light jazz ensembles.

For more information how your or your group can participate in
The Pavilion's Young Talent Spotlight, email Whitney Hough.

Music in Motion

Music in Motion provides student musicians in Conroe Independent School District with hands-on opportunities to work with professional conductors and musicians. In 2010, The Woodlands Development Company, Morgan Stanley and General Growth Properties' donation to The Pavilion expanded the program by bringing in high-profile clinicians and offering it to a larger number of students. The donation was given to The Pavilion in honor of Cynthia Woods Mitchell's commitment to the performing arts in our community. Music in Motion makes a meaningful difference in the lives of student musicians by giving them unique training experiences that impact the way they play music.
