Lots of things rock. Detroit rocks. Tina Fey rocks. And thanks to the Houston Symphony Pops! series, Broadway Rocks! too. Michael Krajewski will take the podium to conduct a program of famous show tunes from contemporary Broadway hits including Wicked, The Lion King, Hairspray and Rent. Providing vocal accompaniment will be the Gay Men's Chorus of Houston as well as several Broadway stars including Julia Murney, Hugh Panaro and Robert Evan. If you thought the Houston Symphony could only play Bach, Mozart and the like, think again. Jones Hall will be rocking with Broadway hits at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m. Sunday. 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $25 to $106.
