Live holiday music by talented local musicians in the “String Theory String Orchestra” will be featured when Fort Bend County Libraries presents “Holiday Music with String Theory” on Monday, December 12, beginning at 6:30 p.m., in the Meeting Room of the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.
An all-string ensemble of violins, violas, cellos, and a bass violin, String Theory String Orchestra will be joined by vocalist Amanda Hart Bassett in performing a variety of seasonal music, from pops to classical.
A Houston-based singer, Bassett received operatic training at Southern Methodist University, where she received her undergraduate music degree in vocal performance. She continued her musical training at the Boston Conservatory, where she received her graduate degree in musical theatre. She has performed in numerous musical-theater productions since her return to Houston in January 2016.
String Theory String Orchestra was founded in the summer of 2012 by a group of individuals who love to play chamber music and who wanted to explore the abundance of great string music this is often missed if one performs solely with a symphony orchestra.
This performance is made possible through the generous support of the Friends of the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library. Proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sales and annual membership dues help to underwrite the costs of special programming and various cultural events at the library.
The performance is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library at 281-633-4675 .
