This Orchestra Puts on a Show the Whole Family Will Love on Saturday Afternoon

This Saturday, Fort Bend County Libraries will present a free family concert performance by the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra. The performance, Teddy Bear’s Picnic, will include fun, call-and-response interaction between the orchestra and the audience that will have everyone clapping and dancing along with the music!

Musical selections for Teddy Bear’s Picnic include a variety of whimsical pieces, from The Pink Panther and The Greatest Showman to The Waltzing Cat and Baby Shark! This is an entertaining family activity and a great way to foster a young child’s love of music. After the performance, children are invited to get an up-close look and learn more about the different instruments during an instrument “petting zoo” in the Bohachevsky Gallery located inside the library.

Through innovative, exciting, and engaging concerts, Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra and Chorus strives to bring a diverse array of music to all ages in Fort Bend County, Texas and beyond. Founded in 1992, FBSO approaches the community as artistic partners, using multi-genre programming to create cultural conversations of value while appealing to a diverse swath of people. By intentionally curating concerts that initiate conversations about large-scale issues, the Orchestra reinforces social cohesion, family ties and individual self-esteem, creating a better quality of life for the community.

Families with children of all ages are welcome to attend this special production of Teddy Bear’s Picnic! Admission is free. Please note that the performance will be presented in an outdoor amphitheater, and seating is concrete. Theater-goers are encouraged to bring cushions to sit on. Glass containers, alcoholic beverages, and popcorn are not allowed in the amphitheater.

At Sommerall Station Apartments in Houston, Texas, it is clear that we have it all, but we still feel obliged to inform you of all the events our community has scheduled. Please feel free to join in all of the fun during this premier event!
