Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra to Perform an American Salute in Southlake

The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra will perform “An American Salute,” a concert of musical patriotism, on May 26, 2017 at White’s Chapel United Methodist Church.

Associate Conductor Daniel Black will lead the orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, John Williams’s Summon the Heroes, Unger’s Ashokan Farewell, a medley of American marches, and much more.

“These concerts allow us to offer a small token of appreciation to our armed forces and to bring the community together with a selection of music that most people know and love,” said Daniel Black. “It’s important for the orchestra to maintain an active presence outside of Bass Performance Hall, and I think the Symphony does an excellent job of bringing these sorts of community programs to the public.”

This family-friendly performance will take place at 7:00 p.m. in White’s Chapel United Methodist Church at 185 South White’s Chapel Boulevard in Southlake, TX, 76092. Tickets are $10 for children and students and $20 for adults. Tickets can be purchased by calling the FWSO Ticket Office at 817-665-6000 or by visiting their website.

Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra Coming to The Marq

APEX Arts League and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra bring a musical educational experience in “Musical Math” to Aria Amphitheater at The Marq Southlake on Sunday, May 7 at 1:00 PM.

The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra will perform an education program for families with children on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at The Marq in Southlake. Associate Conductor Daniel Black will lead the orchestra in the Symphony’s “Musical Math” program, which explores tempo, meter and more in famous orchestral tunes like “Hoe Down” from Copland’s Rodeo, Pachelbel’s Canon in D, Brahms’s Hungarian Dance No. 5, and others.

“In music, we are always counting,” said Lindsey Branch, the FWSO’s director of education and community programs. “So, we created the “Musical Math” program to show all the ways these two subjects, math and music, are really related and to help students make connections between things they’re learning in the classroom, like fractions, and certain elements of music, like note values or time signatures.”

This performance will take place in Aria Outdoor Amphitheater at The Marq—located at 285 Shady Oaks Dr. in Southlake, TX, 76092—on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and children and $8 for Apex members. Tickets can be purchased by calling the FWSO Ticket Office at 817-665-6000 or by visiting the Forth Worth Symphony website.
