Arts for Life

Five years ago, an arts organization called Imagination Celebration Fort Worth (ICFW) invited Arturo Rodriguez, a Mexican student studying music at TCU, to write a symphony in honor of bringing arts awareness to youngsters. Since then, Rodriguez’s 44-minute symphony has been played around the United States and Mexico and has triggered an exchange program with the ICFW and the Orquesta Sinfonica Infantil de Mexico (OSIM)—the National Youth Symphony of Mexico. The 200-member orchestra, made up of boys and girls from ages 9 to 17, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Bass Performance Hall, Fourth and Calhoun streets in Fort Worth. Tickets are $5 to $12. Call 817-212-4280.
Thu., Oct. 26, 7:30 p.m.
