Join us for the world premiere of “Three Hours in Dallas,” an original musical composition scored to accompany an all-new compilation of historic motorcade film footage. Written by award-winning composer Jesus Martinez and performed by a percussion ensemble from Arlington’s Sam Houston High School, this unique immersive experience exemplifies President Kennedy’s affinity for the arts.
Linking the arts to the historic events of November 22, 1963, this cross-generational project spans 56 years. The composer was born in 1987, and the performers were born in the early 2000s. The film score is meant to link sound effects and synchronized sound to specific scenes that will captivate the audience and create the sensation of personally witnessing the events of November 22, 1963. As President Kennedy himself said, “We must never forget…that art is not a form of propaganda…it is a form of truth.”
This program is part of the Museum’s Four Days In November series, November 19-22. Program tickets can be purchased individually or as a series.
