Spend Your Saturday Afternoon Listening to Light-Hearted Tunes at the George Memorial Library

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.

Step outside of our welcoming and comfortable community at Westmount at London Park Apartments in Houston, Texas for the day! This event is coming to town on Saturday, and it promises to be a wonderful time!
