Hallam Family Concerts: Tales of the Macabre

Dallas Museum of Art

The great American writer Edgar Allan Poe was born on January 19, 1809. Come celebrate his birthday with an afternoon of his most chilling short stories, dramatically told through music for harp and string quartet alongside Schubert’s eerie masterpiece “Death and the Maiden.” Emily Levin will perform with PLUS Quartet, a string ensemble whose members come from the DSO. Dallas-based actor and voice-over artist Max Hartman joins Ms. Levin on stage to read excerpts of Poe's works.

Hallam Concerts are on Saturday afternoons at 3 p.m. and typically last roughly an hour. Please note: this program is anticipated to run over one hour in length. They are completely free of charge and open to all ages. Most programs are followed by CODA: a moderated post-performance dialogue with the musicians.

Hallam Family Concerts are generously sponsored by Fanchon and Howard Hallam. We are grateful to them as well as to many others who give of their time and resources to make our concerts a reality. Your contributions help us keep these concerts free for all.
