This exciting collaboration between Theater District Houston, Visit Houston, and Downtown Houston+ (that's us!) invites you to discover the hidden musical gems scattered throughout Downtown Houston.

THE QUEST: Navigate the captivating streets and plazas in search of 9 interactive music boxes strategically placed in key locations. Each music box showcases music from Houston Theater District performing arts organizations as well as Houston artists, such as Vivalda Ndula and J.E. Hernandez and hometown favorites The Suffers and Honey Bee.

Keep your eyes peeled at:

Lynn Wyatt Square

Trebly Park

Market Square

Wortham Center

Hobby Center

Houston Symphony

Alley Theatre

Bonus tip: Be observant! Some locations might hold multiple music boxes, ready to surprise your ears and enrich your hunt.

CLAIM YOUR VICTORY: Here's how to be crowned the champion of harmonious exploration:

  1. Capture the Melody: Capture each music box in a photo or video and share it on your social media channels. Remember to tag #DowntownHouston and #houstonharmonies, and don't forget to mention @downtownhouston and @theaterdistricthouston in your post!
  2. Harmonious Completion: Once you've unearthed all 9 hidden melodies and posted proof of your adventure, send us a direct message on Instagram with your final music box snapshot. This triumphant move unlocks your prize: a $10 gift card to treat yourself at Tout Suite at Trebly Park!
