The Fort Bend Symphony’s most popular concert is the annual holiday celebration, “Deck the Halls”. This year’s performance begins at 2 p.m. at the Stafford Centre. It’s a cherished tradition for many Fort Bend families, and the family-friendly setting is a
wonderful way to introduce your children to the entertainment of a live orchestra concert.
The first half of this year’s program features FBSO’s special holiday gift to our patrons, the popular and renowned pianist Joseph Fuller. Mr. Fuller brings brand-new arrangements for orchestra and piano to our concert, which will be a treat for all. Fuller has played under conductors from the Metropolitan Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Indianapolis Opera, the former Berkshire Opera, and the world-renowned Indianapolis Childrens Chorus. His work has been influenced by some of music’s most dynamic and classic composers. Fuller released his first holiday album, Chrismastime, in 2013. His various albums have received over 15 million plays
on Pandora Radio.
The FBSOC joins the orchestra for the second half of the program, raising their voices in song. You’ll enjoy traditional holiday favorites, including Let it Snow, The Christmas Song, Three Kings of Orient, the rollicking Frosty the Snowman, and more. You’ll thrill to the soaring notes of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus. We take the audience to a reflective note with Let There Be Peace on Earth. And, the whole family will leave filled with the holiday spirit after our Christmas Carol Sing-A-Long!
Prior to the performance and at intermission, patrons will enjoy shopping at the FBSO Holiday Marketplace. Each year, FBSO members create a variety of handmade items for your gift-giving needs. Selections range from jewelry to tree ornaments to wearable items and more. All proceeds benefit FBSO.
