For music enthusiasts who would enjoy a free concert, mark your calendars for February 22 and plan to attend Fort Bend ISD’s annual Elementary Honor Choir Concert. The event will showcase fifth-grade students from 28 of the District’s elementary schools. The concert will be held Friday, February 22, at 7:00 p.m. in the Kempner High School Auditorium, 14777 Voss Road, Sugar Land.
Students earned a place in this year’s honor choir through a competitive audition process. Singers from the following elementary campuses will be featured in the concert: Austin Parkway, Barrington Place, Blue Ridge, Brazos Bend, Briargate, Colony Bend, Commonwealth, Dulles, Fleming, Glover, Heritage Rose, Highlands, Holley, Jones, Jordan, Lantern Lane, Lexington Creek, Mission West, Oyster Creek, Palmer, Parks, Pecan Grove, Quail Valley, Scanlan Oaks, Schiff, Seguin, Sugar Mill, and Townewest.
The FBISD Elementary Honor Choir will be led by guest conductor, William R. Adams, founder and artistic director of the Fort Bend Boys Choir. Adams formed the Fort Bend Boys Choir in 1982 with only 45 initial members.
The organization has grown into five performing ensembles with more than 200 choristers. Adams’ many years of experience include working with the Singing Boys of Houston, the Phoenix Boys Choir, the Vienna Boys Choir, and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra.
He is actively sought as a festival clinician, camp director, and adjudicator for various children’s choirs throughout Texas and the nation. His choral accomplishments include performances with the San Francisco Opera Company, Houston Grand Opera, and the Nova Chamber Singers in Houston.
Come and support the efforts of these talented, young FBISD musicians as they present their annual choir concert.
Admission is free.
