2024 National Conference, Houston


June 6-8, 2024

Conference registration is now open! This June, join your peers for three days of unparalleled learning and networking in Houston, one of the largest and most diverse cultural destinations in the country. There’s a lot to explore in Houston’s vibrant arts and culinary scenes:

  • Visit one of the city’s many museums and galleries. Highlights include the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the nationally renowned Menil Collection (including the Cy Twombly Gallery); and the Rothko Chapel.
  • Houston houses the largest medical center in the world, adjacent to beautiful Rice University and The Shepherd School of Music. Make time to visit campus and see the lovely James Turrell Sky Space right outside the doors of The Shepherd School of Music.
  • Sample delicious foods from around the world. Whether you’re craving Tex-Mex, BBQ, or exotic fusion dishes, you’ll find it all in Houston.

Plus, you’ll get to experience firsthand Music Director Juraj Valčuha’s innovative visual approach to semi-staged opera at Salome in Concert on Friday evening at the Houston Symphony. Hear the orchestra in their newly renovated Jones Hall, which features updated acoustics and interior while retaining its iconic mid-century landmark exterior.
