Friday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 9 Mar 2012 7:59 AM

Today in the roundup: Sargent visits the Carter, Turtle Creek Chorale’s new leader and a confusing confluence of names.


IN FROM THE EAST: On Sunday, the blockbuster “The Age of Impressionism: Great French Paintings from the Clark” opens at the Kimbell Art Museum. The works are on loan from the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Mass. Not wanting to be left out of the fun, the Amon Carter Musem of American Art also called up the Clark, which send the Carter a quartet of early John Singer Sargent works. Gaile Robinson tells you all about them in her review.

A PROMOTION: Congratulations to Trey Jacobs, who had the “interm” removed from his title of interm artistic director of the Turtle Creek Chorale. Jacobs has been on the job for six months after replacing Jonathan Palant. “Under his tenure as Interim Conductor, Trey has grown the quality of sound of the Chorale and also the number of members who are passionate about being the best male chorus in the world,” Turtle Creek Chorale Board of Directors Chair Rev. Dawson B. Taylor said in a news release posted on

WHAT’S IN A NAME: When Pete Freedman left his post as Observer music editor to start a new project called Central Track, it struck me as an interesting choice in names. One that has strong Dallas ties going way back but also one currently in use by UTD’s artist residency program. But as it turns out, things get really hairy when trying to figure out who’s who online. Front Row does its best to sort out the mess.
