Fine Arts Chamber Players invites you to a FREE Bancroft Family Concert on Saturday, March 12, 2016, at the Dallas Museum of Art. This concert features seven members of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, maestro Paul Phillips, and narrator Bo Gerard performing Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du soldat (The Soldier’s Tale).
The piece for brass, woodwinds, strings, percussion, and actor, fills the entire program. This miniature version of the Faust story explores what happens when one man – a soldier finding his way home – makes a deal with the devil. The featured musicians are: Gary Levinson, violin; Nicolas Tsolainos, double bass; Kimberly Cole Luevano, clarinet; Scott Walzel, bassoon; L. Russell Campbell, cornet; Chris Oliver, trombone; Doug Howard, percussion. Joining the performers will be conductor Paul Phillips, music director and conductor of the Meadows Symphony Orchestra at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts. Actor, musician, and performer Bo Gerard will narrate.
Horchow Auditorium doors open at 2:30 p.m. for the 3 p.m. concert. The museum is located at 1717 North Harwood, Dallas, TX 75201. Admission to the concert is free with no reservations or tickets required. For more information, call 214-520-2219 or visit www.fineartschamberplayers.org.
