Classical Music and a Classic Pumpkin Patch/Fall Festival Fill October Calendar
ECHO “Suite on Music” – 7 p.m., Friday, October 23
The baton raises for the second season of ECHO (The Energy Corridor of Houston Orchestra) when it performs “Suite on Music,” serenading West Houston with inspiring suites about sweets, 7 p.m. Friday, October 23, at Bridgepoint Bible Church, 13277 Katy Freeway.
Dinner and a selection of “sweets” will be available for purchase before the orchestra takes the stage to play classical favorites from Bach, Grieg, Holst, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky. Tickets for dinner, catered by Leibman’s Wine and Fine Foods and Nothing Bundt Cakes, must be pre-purchased online. The first 50 people purchasing either a dinner or concert ticket will get their own sweets, two handcrafted chocolates from Cacao and Cardamom.
