Virtuosi of Houston is a program unlike any other fine arts program for young musicians in the country. A 501(c) 3 organization, Virtuosi was formed in 1996 to increase education and performance opportunities leading to a music profession for Houston’s exceptionally gifted middle to high school age musicians and to bring an expanded repertoire of chamber works to Houston audiences. The chamber group is smaller (55) than a typical symphony orchestra, allowing these exceptional musicians to experience increased confidence, leadership, responsibility and skill through individual attention from two world-class conductors. Leadership is provided by Franz Anton Krager, Professor of Conducting and Director of Orchestras, and Andrzej Grabiec, Professor of Violin, both faculty members at the University of Houston, Moores School of Music, and artistic directors and conductors of the Virtuosi of Houston. Virtuosi of Houston gives students the foundation and skills they need for their future in a career in music. Our vision is that someday they will return to Texas as performers, educators, and arts advocates to give their expertise back to the community that helped develop them as young artists.
