M. D. Anderson YMCA visits the Houston Symphony

How the Grinch Stole Christmas was a fantastic way for the Chester Pitts Charitable Foundation to end the 2013 year. We had a blast taking elementary aged children from the M.D Anderson YMCA branch to the Houston Symphony to see Dr. Suess’ classic story. Thank you to our friends at Macy’s and SuitMart for helping us dress up the children in suits and dresses. They all had a wonderful time picking out their outfits at the stores and looking their best on the day of the concert.

The children loved the concert and enjoyed signing along to songs with the audience. After the performance the Houston Symphony treated the kids to craft stations, cookies and punch and best of all a meet and greet with the Grinch himself!

Yes Prep West at the Houston Symphony

What’s a great way to kick of the fall school year? How about taking Yes Prep students to a symphonic experience at that Houston Symphony. The young teens were in awe watching the cirque artists perform to the sounds of lively symphony music. The youth were treated to a meet and greet with the performers and the conductor after the concert and all of them had an unforgettable experience.
