Great outdoor concert or show that have covered & lawn area seating area. The best thing is free to everyone but if you want vovered seating then you have to pickup free ticket (6 max PP) on morning of the show .

Viewed this auditorium during a stroll through Hermann Park on a hot Autumn afternoon. Sadly there was no concert on here during our brief Houston stay as we would have loved to visit.
