Once again collaboration is making a difference as North Texas non-profits recover from the daunting pandemic. The latest on the scene, or rather on the stage, is the partnership between the Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and the Turtle Creek Chorale (TCC) on Tuesday, September 19.
The evening’s program, “Sing For Our Lives,” is intended to “encourage us to extend a helping hand to those around us and, equally importantly, to ourselves.”
According to DSO President/CEO Kim Noltemy, “Though the Chorale performs regularly at the Meyerson, we have not partnered on a full-scale concert in quite some time. We look forward to joining TCC for this performance that brings themes of positivity, kindness and community to our combined audiences.”
In addition to tried-and-true musical works, the DSO and Chorale will also perform new original works by composers including Alberto Cordero Garcia and Joseph Martin, in addition to having four speakers “who will share their inspirational journeys in a celebration of life.”
Another highlight will be the Project Unity Choir and Make A Wish youngsters joining the DSO and Chorale throughout the concert.
In summing up the joint venture, Chorale Executive Director Jeremy Wayne said, “The partnership has been in the works for some time and we’re so pleased to come together for the concert with such a positive and necessary message.”
Ranging from $58 to $187, tickets are available here.
