Top Writers Premiere FWSO Fun Family Concert

“Jurassic Parts – When Instruments Roamed The Earth!®” a Family Series concert event will be presented by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra at Bass Hall, February 2, 2019 at 11:00am

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.

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.

Sir Humphrey Treble-Clef

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 & story.
