Madame Mahler

Morrissey said it well, "To someone, somewhere, Alma matters in mind, body and soul." That someone is SMU's professor of art history, Dr. Alessandra Comini. In the latest of her Comini Lecture Series, the good doctor examines the life of Alma Mahler. During her lifetime, Alma's own talents as a composer were overshadowed by her many famous husbands. Dr. Comini shows us that Alma matters by examining the composers' formative years. At last, it's Alma’s moment to shine. This event is free but reservations are required. It will be held at the Meadows Museum auditorium, 5900 Bishop Blvd. on Tuesday at 6 p.m. For more information, call 214-768-2698.
