Thursday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 10 Mar 2011 7:56 AM

Today in the roundup: Young Masters at the DMA, square dancing in Fort Worth and a Broadway legend comes to Irving.


AN EYE ON THE FUTURE: The Dallas Museum of Art opened its “Young Masters” exhibition in the main concourse over the weekend. The show displays work by AP arts students from 13 North Texas high schools. (Must be nice to include that on those college applications.) Check out the DMA’s Uncrated blog for a behind-the-scenes look at how the art was installed.

ROOM FOR SQUARES: Most of us haven’t square danced since elementary school, when we were awkwardly made to hold hands with the yucky boy/girl next to us and count down the minutes until music class was over. But as it turns out, some of those kids actually grew up to like square dancing – and they’re doing their best to keep the dance alive and well in Fort Worth. And after reading this feature about a regular dance held there, it actually sounds kinda fun.

A LEGEND AMONG US: On Saturday, Christine Ebersole will perform her first concert in North Texas when she joins the Irving Symphony. The owner of two Tony Awards talks to about Grey Gardens, how she clicks so well with pianist Billy Stritch and why she recorded an album of Noel Coward songs.
