Vibrant blue, purple, red, green and white lights pulsated through the park as pianists pounded away at their keys on Dec. 1. 

The Cliburn in the Community’s concert premiered a new addition in downtown Fort Worth — the Singing Trees, a light exhibit of over 6,000 lights designed by Canadian lighting design firm Limbic Media.

Pianists Sara Doan and Evan Mitchell performed “The Polar Express.” The event also hosted Neighbor’s House Grocery, a grocery store in downtown Fort Worth.
