100th BIRTHDAY CONCERT
Miss Ima Hogg, Founder of the Houston Symphony and a lady very important in the history of the city of Houston. I was sure my mom had the Tom Tierney paper doll book of famous Texas women that included a paper doll of Ima Hogg, but no, of the hundreds of Tom Tierney paper doll books she has that is the one not in her collection. The HOUSTON SYMPHONY created this fan to hand out at the celebration. It is actually much prettier than it scanned.
June 21, 1013. A wonderful time was had by all at Miller Outdoor Theatre for the 100th Birthday celebration of the Houston Symphony. Beautiful music by the Houston Symphony, fun entertainment provided by students from area schools and a terrific vocal performance by LaKisha Jones. I do not watch those singing programs on television but Miss Jones, a finalist on American Idol in 2007 sure can sing.
