Apex Arts League and The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announce a performance in Southlake in October as part of the DSO on the GO concert series. DSO on the GO is generously supported by Ebby Halliday, REALTORS.
Assistant Conductor Ruth Reinhardt and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will return to Southlake on October 15, 2017, at White’s Chapel United Methodist Church. DSO Principal Second Violin Angela Fuller Heyde will perform Edgar Meyer’s Violin Concerto, a traditional solo work colored with Meyer’s bluegrass roots.
“I am so excited to share the stage with my colleagues for this beautiful work,” said Fuller Heyde. “I love the colors and energy of the Meyer Violin Concerto, especially its complex rhythms and gorgeous melodies.”
Other works on the program also explore folk music through an unexpected lens. Aaron Copland’s Three Latin American Sketches represent the iconic American composer’s musical reaction to his visits and studies in Mexico. Dvořák’s American Suite was written after the composer’s famed trip to the “New World” and mixes American themes and Czech folk music.
DSO on the GO was launched in 2012 with a classical concert in Allen. In the 2017/18 season, the series will feature the full Dallas Symphony Orchestra playing classical and pops concerts in cities and neighborhoods across North Texas. DSO on the GO concerts include familiar classical pieces and popular light classics, with concerto soloists who are principal musicians from the DSO.
Single tickets are $19 for general admission, $15 for Apex members and $9 for Students. Tickets can be purchased at www.mydso.com or by calling 214.TIX.4DSO.
