A Midsummer Night’s Teen Dream

On Saturday night, June 14th, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra is partnering with some of the city’s most talented and innovative young musical minds to present a special, one-night only concert. The concert is imagined by and presented in partnership with the Dallas Symphony’s Teen Council and features musicians from the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra and the Booker T. Washington High School Young Women’s Chorus performing alongside the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. The concert, programmed in part by the teen council with other teens in mind, features A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Felix Mendelssohn’s fanciful take on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of romantic errors. 18-year old violinist Christine Wu, winner of the Lynn Harrell Concerto Competition will also perform a movement of Jean Sibelius’ Violin Concerto. The orchestra’s newly appointed assistant conductor, Karina Canellakis, conducts. The concert (which will be followed by an after-party also designed with teens in mind) starts at 7:30pm and takes place at the Meyerson Symphony Center (2301 Flora St.) For tickets and more information, visitwww.dallassymphony.com or call 214.670.3700.
