A Little Light Chamber Music

Coinciding with the DMA's Concentrations 57: Slavs and Tatars exhibit (a high/low art investigation of the geopolitics of language and culture), The Fine Arts Chamber Players present an afternoon of folk-informed musical performance. Held at the DMA's Horchow Auditorium, the concert includes Khachaturian’s trio for clarinet, violin and piano (performed by members of the Dallas Symphony) and the premiere of “Universal Language,” a new work by composer Margaret Barrett. Performed by Dallas world-folk ensemble The Obscure Dignitaries, “Universal Language” is a musical response to the Concentrations 57 exhibit inspired by the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Patrons are invited to arrive early (1:30 p.m.) for a privileged tour of the Concentrations 57 exhibit with Gabriel Ritter, the Nancy and Tim Hanley assistant curator of contemporary art; however, tour space is limited. Auditorium doors open at 2:30 p.m., with the concert beginning at 3 p.m. Admission is free. For more information visit fineartschamberplayers.org or dma.org. The Dallas Museum of Art is at 1717 N. Harwood St.
