Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra presents Out of the Stars: Songs of Creation
The Fort Bend Symphony Chorus's season finale, “Out of the Stars: Songsof Creation,” is a concert that celebrates heaven, earth and everything in between. The program begins with music that focuses around stars and planets. Daniel Elder’s arrangement of “Twinkle, Twinkle,” the children’s folk song, is a sparkling open to the concert. The celestial theme continues with “Choose Something Like a Star,” the beloved Robert Frost poem set to music by Randall Thompson. Houston’s own David Ashley White penned “The Blue Estuaries: Evening-Star.” Vince Peterson’s arrangement of Erika Lloyd’s “Cells Planets” finishes the tour.
The performance on May 19 at Sugar Land Auditorium is free. The performance on May 20 at Stafford Centre is ticketed.
