“Dallas is…a glorious sprawling melting pot
….a middle school child
…un hogar en que me puedo encontrar.”
Over nine hundred voices from diverse neighborhoods, cultural communities, and age groups chime in to finish the sentence “Dallas is…” in the latest project from Verdigris Ensemble. Ranging from tough love to unbridled infatuation, this collection of brief love letters to the city create the backdrop for Verdigris Ensemble’s 2018-2019 season finale, “Faces of Dallas.” Part of this year’s SOLUNA Festival concert lineup, the interdisciplinary concert uses the language of music to tell the stories of Dallas in a vibrant celebration of the rapidly growing city.
Synthesizing the poetry of local writers with visual artwork of Stephen Zhang, Verdigris will use a program of choral music to bring to life watercolor portraits of the people of different Dallas neighborhoods.
ION Young Composer Competition winners will have their compositions premiered during this concert.
