Attending a Chamber Music Houston event is more than just a concert – we want you to enjoy the complete experience! Here are suggestions and tips that will make your event a wonderful evening.
Give yourself plenty of time for driving and parking. Concerts begin at 7:30 pm, and the doors open by 7:15 pm, so aim for a 7:00 pm arrival at the Shepherd School. When mapping your trip to the campus, use the Shepherd School of Music as your destination, rather than Rice University. This will avoid confusion. Also, refer to the Parking map provided below.
If traffic is moving and you arrive early, no problem! Concessions are offered by Salentos Wine Café in the lobby beginning at 7:00 pm. Enjoy a glass of wine and a snack of cheese and fruit, or a delicious cookie! Cash or credit accepted.
Dining options abound in the Rice University area, so consider a local restaurant for an enjoyable meal before the concert. Rice Village has many cuisine options and price ranges to choose from, and is a short, five-minute drive from the concert hall. The Museum District to the south and Upper Kirby to the north have even more places to dine – not to mention the many restaurants in between, and just a 10-minute drive from your concert.
