The Houston Symphonys annual community concert series Sounds Like Fun! is already in full swing with more than a dozen free shows at area schools, churches and neighborhood centers on the schedule. A program of kid-friendly classics that are perfect for introducing children to classical music, the show includes excerpts from Dvoráks Symphony No. 9 and Coplands Billy the Kid. Concerts are short (only an hour long), and theres an instrument petting zoo before each performance so that kids can get up close and personal with tubas, cymbals and the like.
Todays morning concert is at 10:30 a.m. at Ripley House, 4410 Navigation Boulevard. Thats followed by an evening show at 7:30 p.m. at Saint Bernadette Catholic Church, 15500 El Camino Real. Concerts continue through June 24, with a final show at Miller Outdoor Theatre. For information and a complete schedule, call 713-238-1477 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. Free.
