Tonight: Gloria Gaynor with the Houston Symphony
How are her disco hits going to sound with 90 classical musicians backing her? "I have no idea!" she says. "I am so looking forward to this. No one is more excited than I am." After years of working with small bands, Gaynor will have to make some adjustments to work with an orchestra and conductor. Then again, maybe not. "The wonderful thing about being the lead singer," she laughs, "is that they have to cooperate with me."
7:30 p.m. tonight at Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana, 713-224-7575 or www.houstonsymphony.org.
