Arts & Entertainment 41st annual Candlelight Christmas Tour themed ‘A Gilded Age Christmas, in Texas’

T

he Fort Bend Museum Docents cordially invite the community to attend the 41st annual Candlelight Christmas Tour of the 1883 John M. Moore House. This year’s theme is “A Gilded Age Christmas, in Texas.” The Moore house will be lovingly and lavishly decorated to represent the early 1900s when many Texans made their fortune in the oil, gas, and timber industries — and one way of spending their new wealth was to build larger, more elaborate homes. In 1905, local rancher John M. Moore became the first person born in Fort Bend County to become a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Moore, his wife, Lottie, and their five children began making frequent trips to Washington D.C. and were invited to much grander homes than existed in Fort Bend County. Oil had recently been discovered on some of their land and that may have been part of their motivation to enlarge their Victorian cottage into the house seen today. Unfortunately, there are no photos or written records of how the family decorated the house during the Gilded Age, so the Fort Bend Museum docents are decorating the home to represent the type of decorations a wealthy Texas family would have had. The Moore House is located at 410 S. Fifth Street in the downtown historic district of Richmond, Texas. Candlelight tours will be on Dec. 2, 3, 9 and 10. Friday tours are from 6-8 p.m. and Saturday tours are from 5-8 p.m. Complimentary wassail and cookies are served at the end of the tours. The docents will be selling handcrafted items and raffle tickets will be available for the Gift Card Tree fundraiser. All proceeds from the event go to fund the museum’s education

A Most Wonderful Time of the Year The Fort Bend Boys Choir 41st Holiday Concert

o you hear what I hear? It’s the sound of singing boys inviting the public to the Fort Bend Boys Choir’s Christmas Musicale. Mark your calendars for Friday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m. at First United Methodist Church-Missouri City, 3900 Lexington Blvd in Missouri City. Although tickets will be available at the door, purchasing online is the best option, said choir officials. Adult admission is $18, and children 12 and under are $5. All proceeds from the Christmas Musicale benefit the music program support and the organization’s continued financial recovery from COVID-19. Auditions on-going Boys who love music and singing are encouraged to audition for the award-winning Fort Bend Boys Choir. No experience is necessary, and boys should be eight years of age or older with an unchanged voice. At this time, auditions are by special appointment at the First United Methodist Church-Missouri City. Through the Fort Bend Boys Choir of Texas, choirboys from all over Fort Bend and the Houston metro area have the opportunity to learn more about music and singing. They will also have a chance to experience many of life’s lessons like leadership, making friends, and building self-confidence and self-esteem — all in a safe, proactive setting. Take advantage of this life-changing activity before your boy’s voice changes, choir officials said. Visit the Fort Bend Boys Choir’s website, www.fbbctx.org, or call 281240-3800 for more details about Christmas Musicale tickets and auditions.
