Who we are

Third Space Music is a non-profit partnership between musicians from the Houston Symphony and the Houston community. Our mission is to support live classical music in Houston, connect Houston Symphony musicians directly to our audience, and contribute to Houston-area non-profit organizations. Our motto is: Connect, Create, Contribute.

The “third space” is a place which is not home and not work. It is a non-hierarchical place where people come willingly to build community in a casual and conversational environment.

At Third Space Music, our musicians volunteer our time and talent to perform musical projects that are important to us; our audience attends our concerts to learn about us as individuals through music and conversation. Together with you, we are building our local community, supporting live classical music, and donating to Houston-area non-profit organizations.
