Peter Boyer’s work New Beginnings will be performed on the Houston Symphony’s annual New Year’s Eve concert, at The Centrum in Spring, Texas. The program will be conducted by Brett Mitchell, who is presently the Associate Conductor of The Cleveland Orchestra, and the former Assistant Conductor of the Houston Symphony.

This will be the first time that the Houston Symphony will be performing Boyer’s work. New Beginnings was commissioned by the Kalamazoo Symphony to celebrate the opening of The New Bronson Hospital in 2000, and it has been widely performed. Boyer’s 2001 recording with the London Symphony Orchestra has been broadcast widely on classical radio stations around the United States and abroad. In the 2015-16 season, New Beginnings is also performed by the Omaha Symphony and the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.
