Rite of Spring and Rach 3

In 1913, Rite of Spring was so different from anything audiences had heard up until then that a riot broke out when it was first performed. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $25 to $94.
