Houston Symphony and Associate Conductor Robert Franz played a program of familiar songs from movies, plays, and other popular venues. Each summer the Symphony plays five Community Concerts at schools and churches as part of their Community Concert series, to bring the sound of an orchestra to everyone. The annual concert was last Wednesday evening, at North Shore High School auditorium, and was well attended.
Conductor Robert Franz engaged the audience in narrative and participation. He invited a young lady, Nicolle, to come up on stage and actually lead the orchestra in playing a number, a John Phillip Sousa March entitled “The Washington Post.”
