Free Program to Feature Inaugural Performance by Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra Chorus

Sugar Land, TX - The City of Sugar Land is partnering with the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra and the Aga Khan Council for Southwestern United States for a free performance on Saturday, Sept. 24, at 4 p.m., at the Ismaili Jamatkhana and Center, 1700 First Colony Blvd. The event is open to the public.

The FBSO Chorus will perform Vivaldi’s Gloria; Copland’s Old American Songs, Va Pensiero from Verdi’s opera Nabucco; Beatles’ Blackbird; Moses Hogan’s Music Down in My Soul; and more.

Under the direction of Gregory McDaniel and Adrian O. Rodriguez, the volunteer group is comprised of people who audition to join the chorus and serve the greater Fort Bend area.

The chorus will present three concerts during the 2016-2017 season: Choral Classics, Deck the Halls and Carmina Burana. The latter two are performed with the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra under the baton of music director Dominique Røyem.

Founded in 1992 in Sugar Land, the Fort Bend Symphony Orchestra provides concerts that include a diversity of music for the people of the greater Fort Bend area. The Silver Jubilee season will include a wide array of local guest artists, two new commissions and culminates in the largest masterwork FBSO has ever performed - Orff's Carmina Burana.
