Fort Bend County Libraries will present a musical performance, Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, by the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra.

This family-friendly concert is a way to foster a young child’s love of music. In this interactive performance, based on Jack Prelutsky’s Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, the orchestra will demonstrate how music can be used to tell a story or interpret a poem.

Children will learn about various orchestral instruments and how the orchestra evokes different types of emotions for various styles 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, on the lower level inside the library.

Guided by Music Director Dominique Røyem, the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra (FBSO) and Chorus has been serving the communities of Fort Bend County for more than 25 years. FBSO is a non-profit, volunteer-driven organization that supports local community musicians and artists.

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.
