Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra presents Deck the Halls Holiday Concert
Deck the Halls is a seasonal tradition for Fort Bend County families. HBU’s acclaimed choir, Schola Cantorum, is back by popular demand to perform in accompaniment to the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra.
The orchestra transports the audience into a horse-drawn winter wonderland with two traditional favorites, the American Sleigh Ride, and the Russian Troika by Prokofiev. The Russian theme continues with McKechnie’s Deck the Halls with Trepac (also known as The Russian Dance from The Nutcracker).
New this year, A “Texified” Night Before Christmas brings a new twist to the beloved poem. Irving Berlin’s emotional White Christmas and the Hanukkah Festival Overture complete the orchestra’s solo performance.
Schola Cantorum gives voice to FBSO’s music for the medley Christmas on Broadway (It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, Toyland, My Favorite Things, We Need a Little Christmas, God Bless Us Everyone), continuing with It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and Sing We Now of Christmas. The choir performs a cappella for Ding, Dong Merrily on High and Gloria (Movement 1).
