A thought-provoking, sensory-stimulating evening awaits on Saturday, January 20, with the free community concert “Crossroads: Exploring the Sounds Between,” made possible by The Arts Community Alliance (TACA) Bowdon and Embrey Family Foundations Artist Residency Fund, City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, and National Endowment for the Arts.
The world premiere of Crossroads by Composer-in-residence Dr. Douglas Buchanan unites the musical talent of the Dallas Chamber Symphony led by Artistic Director and Conductor Dr. Richard McKay and the Dallas Street Choir led by Founder and Director Dr. Jonathan Palant. The concert explores the “interface between music composition, performance, community participation and consumption”.
The program includes three musical films from the orchestra’s annual Sight of Sound International Film Fest, a varied musical program including solos by Ebonee Thomas and Danny Goldman on Saint-Saens’ Tarantella for flute and clarinet, and an art installation of homeless signs by artist and professor Willie Baronet, nationally-renowned for his We Are All Homeless project and Signs of Humanity documentary.
Tickets: Free. Reservations can be made by calling (214) 449-1294 or online at www.dcsymphony.org. Walk-up tickets available in the lobby.
