Lively patriotic music by talented local musicians with the Missouri City Pops will be featured at Fort Bend County Libraries’ George Memorial Library on Saturday, June 22, beginning at 10:30 a.m., in the library’s Jodie E. Stavinoha Amphitheater.
Under the direction of Linda Stiegler, the band will perform a selection of patriotic tunes representing past and present Americana, as well as some show tunes and movie themes, oldies, big band, and current hits – with some of their own special brand of fun mixed in, too!
A nonprofit community band of brass, woodwind, and percussion players, the ensemble provides an opportunity for amateur musicians from the Fort Bend County area to get together and share their love of music.
The performance is presented with the generous support of the Friends of George Memorial 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 George Memorial Library.
The performance will take place in an outdoor amphitheater, and seating is concrete. Theater-goers are encouraged to bring cushions to sit on. Glass containers, alcoholic beverages, and popcorn are not allowed in the amphitheater.
In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be moved inside the library.
The concert is free and open to the public. For more information, call George Memorial Library (281-342-4455) or the library system’s Communications Office (281-633-4734), or see the library system’s website (www.fortbend.lib.tx.us).
