For those of us fortunate enough to live in The Woodlands, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion has become a permanent fixture – a unique, outdoor amphitheater that regularly hosts fantastic artists of all genres. This is a venue that effortlessly hosts over 16,000 spectators in a natural outdoor setting and which, like many Woodlands landmarks, originated from an emphatic desire to bring art and culture to the residents of The Woodlands.
When George Mitchell first conceived The Woodlands, he and his wife, Cynthia Woods Mitchell, committed to bringing a first-class entertainment venue to the township that would expose residents and visitors to the full array of performing arts. Their dream became a reality when the Pavilion opened its doors in 1990.
Today, the Pavilion is owned by The Center for the Performing Arts at The Woodlands and is run as a nonprofit entity, taking the revenue from concerts, along with any donations, and using the proceeds to expose audiences to more classical forms of entertainment, like opera, ballet and symphonies.
The Pavilion offers a full and varied calendar of events between March and December each year. Whether you are looking to enjoy a night at the opera, or sing along to some popular live country music, you are sure to find something of interest. For the current calendar of events, click here.
