Transit riders and area residents may catch a free, hourlong holiday concert by the Flutissimo Flute Choir on Saturday Dec. 6 in downtown Fort Worth.

The performance is set for 1:30 p.m. in the lobby of the Fort Worth Transportation Center’s Intermodal Transportation Center at 1001 Jones St.

The Hurst-based choir features professional and amateur musicians who perform throughout the nation. The group was selected by the National Flute Association from more than 500 applicants to perform last August at the National Flute Convention in Chicago, considered the world’s largest flute convention.

The ensemble also received “Outstanding Adult Amateur Ensemble” at the Texas Flute Society competition and has held the accolade since 2005.

Set for Saturday’s concert are “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy,” “Angels We Have Heard On High,” “Carol of the Bells” and “O Holy Night,” among other holiday selections.

The choir chose the downtown facility because of its acoustics and architecture, according to the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, or The T.  

Concertgoers may park in commercial lots across the street from the Intermodal Transportation Center. Street parking meters are free on Saturdays. The free downtown Molly the Trolley circulator also stops at the ITC. More information is available by calling The T customer service at 817-215-8600 or by visiting www.the-t.com.
