Description

Saturday, February 2, 11am

Join the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra on a journey into Jurassic Parts. Filled with laughs, surprises, multi-media projection, and on-stage action, the symphony will present the perfect all-ages introduction to the exciting sounds, people, and experience of a symphony orchestra concert.

In pre-historic times, strange creatures walked the planet. These were the ancient ancestors of musical instruments that inspired melodious makers in brass and wood to create the instruments we see in the orchestra today.

Hear the hilarious “research” of paleo-musicologist, Sir Humphrey Treble-Clef, who believes that our modern instruments are actually the descendants of giant, dinosaur-like creatures like you’ve never seen before. These are strange creatures which exist in the hot, mysterious, swampy jungles of Sir Humphrey’s unusual imagination.

Most will not believe a man who tried to prove that ancient humans made music by hitting themselves on the head with rocks; but everyone will smile, laugh, and be in awe of the symphonic interpretations of Sir Humphrey’s wild theories, featuring all the instruments of the orchestra. This concert is created by the award-winning D-FW metroplex writing team of Bob Singleton, composer, and Stephen White, script and story.

Beginning at 10am, there will be activities in the lobby prior to the concert, including an instrument petting zoo and activities from the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. Stay after the concert for a meet and greet with the composer.

$22 adults; $11 for children.
