Virtuosi of Houston (VoH) was founded in 1996 as a premier youth chamber orchestra for gifted instrumentalists to increase education and performance opportunities leading to a music profession for Houston’s middle to high school age musicians and to bring an expanded repertoire of chamber works to Houston audiences. The chamber group is smaller 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 Andrzej Grabiec, Professor of Violin, and Franz Anton Krager, Director of Orchestras, both from the University of Houston, Moores School of Music.
