The Woodlands, Texas – Last week, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion hosted Fine Arts Education Day with a performance by the Houston Symphony for over 5,000 fourth and sixth graders from 35 schools across Conroe Independent School District.Houston Symphony Conductor Robert Franz introduced orchestral music through the lens of writing and storytelling with his “Creating Stories and Music” program. Fine Arts Education Day, a free educational concert featuring the Houston Symphony, is designed to introduce fourth grade students to orchestral music and the various instruments in band and orchestra before they choose an elective in fifth grade. Some sixth graders are invited to watch where their studies could take them if they continue their pursuit of music in junior high.
Produced in conjunction with Conroe ISD, Fine Arts Education Day fulfills The Pavilion’s Mission by fostering new audiences and enhancing an appreciation of the arts.
