  • Cynthia Woods Mitchell-Ima Hogg Competition

    The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Young Artist Competition was founded at the inception of the Texas Music Festival in 1990 by George and Cynthia Mitchell to provide a competition experience for members of the Festival Orchestra. Today, the George and Cynthia Mitchell Foundation continues this generous legacy, joined by the Houston Symphony. This merged collaboration joins the names of two of Houston’s most prominent cultural benefactors and honors their contributions to the arts in our city.
