DBDT & DSO Unite in Concert to Support Project Unity
DBDT & DSO Unite in Concert to Support Project Unity and Honor Lives Lost to Racial Violence and Injustice
Dallas Black Dance Theatre and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra are uniting for a concert to support Project Unity on November 11, 2020. This event will honor those who have lost their lives to racial violence and injustice -- most recently, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Dallas' Botham Jean, and Fort Worth's Atatiana Jefferson.
We believe Black lives matter.
DBDT will perform an emotionally moving male trio, Evidence of Souls Not Seen, and an ensemble of DBDT dancers will perform an excerpt from the delicate and thoughtful Etudes and Elegy. Both ballets express mourning of the deaths of those we hold close to our hearts.
The DSO will perform works by Black composers including the world premiere of a DSO commissioned work by award-winning 24-year-old African American composer Quinn Mason of Dallas. Conductor Lawrence Loh will lead the DSO with soloists Michelle Bradley, soprano, and Reginald Smith, Jr., baritone.
Project Unity works to unify Dallas by implementing community-building programs to help heal race relationships between law enforcement and Dallas citizens.
The Unity Concert will be streamed live from the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, 2301 Flora St, Dallas, TX 75201 at 7:30pm. You have two ways to experience the moving performance.
