Special Events


Mercury holds its ninth annual gala on Friday, March 3, 2017 at 7:00 PM at Houston's magnificent Corinthian.

Join Mercury and gala chairs Ginny Hart and Robert Navo at this gorgeous and historic venue for a glamourous evening in support of Mercury's accessible, innovative concerts and education programs.  Enjoy cocktails and hors d’oevres prior to a scrumptious seated dinner prepared by Jackson & Company.  During dessert, hear a memorable concert by Mercury — a fun, vibrant and dynamic group of musicians nationally known for turning every musical paradigm on its head — and then hit the dance floor and bid the night away on silent and live auctions.  Contact Kade Smith, Development Director, for more details at 713.533.0080 or kade@mercuryhouston.org.
