Trumpeter and singer Byron Stripling joins the Houston Symphony for What a Wonderful World: The Best of Louis Armstrong. Classical trumpet was his original love, but Stripling felt drawn to jazz, eventually joining the Clark Terry and Lionel Hampton bands. And he's got the Armstrong bit down pat by now, having starred in Satchmo on Broadway. Expect to hear familiar favorites like ''St. Louis Blues,'' ''Sweet Georgia Brown'' and ''Alexander's -Ragtime Band.'' Houston Symphony Principal Pops Conductor Michael Krajewski will be at the podium.
