“The Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents 'The Golden Age of Jazz'” reads the program. Truthfully, there's something strange about the DSO presenting jazz, a musical form whose very maturation was dependent on deconstructing the aesthetic assumptions of European music. Although jazz initially borrowed heavily from classical music, especially melodically, and despite the fact that time has ultimately brought the two musics much closer together, this concert remains an unusually striking event. But, that's what makes the DSO interesting, isn't it? Principal Pops Conductor Jeff Tyzik takes lead on a bill that includes selections from legends like Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck, Dizzy Gillespie and Joe Zawinul. Performances take place at the Meyerson at 7:30 p.m Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets start at $19. For tickets and more information visit mydso.com.
