Is your cello gathering dust in the closet? Are you tired of moving around the flute you played years ago in high school? Are you looking for a fun way to spend a couple of summer days? FBSO’s Summer Sessions program is for you! The program is open to adults, high school and advanced middle school students who can read music and play an instrument or sing.
Summer Sessions is a two day intensive – and fun – clinic, allowing musicians to play alongside members of the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra. FBSO added a choral component this year, so participants may also sing along with the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra Chorus. Sessions run Saturday afternoon from 1 – 7pm and on Sunday from 2 – 4:30, with a final concert (free to the public) from 6 – 7pm. Summer Sessions will be held at Clements High School, 4200 Elkins Road, in Sugar Land.
Music on this year’s program offers both entertainment and challenge, including selections from the classics such as George Gershwin’s American in Paris, Georges Bizet’s March of the Toreadors, The Circus Band by Charles Ives and two compositions by Verdi.
Summer Sessions is made possible in part by Ecolab and the City of Sugar Land. Participant applications and more information about the 2018 FBSO Summer Sessions program are available online at http://fbso.org/summer-sessions.
