9/1: Dallas Symphony Conducts the King of Pop

Learn how to swing dance, listen to a "Thriller" symphony, and see neighborhood art

AN ORCHESTRATED MOONWALK: The music of Michael Jackson has been idolized, remade, studied, and even used to measure the music of today. I know I have yet to hear an orchestrated rendition of “P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing).”This evening join the Dallas Symphony led by conductor Brent Havens along with singer Delisco, as they perform the greatest “King of Pop” hits dating back to his early Jackson 5 days. “Moonwalk” your way to the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center for a night of “Off the Wall” music that starts at 8 p.m.

SWINGIN’ TO THE OLDIES: Find a polka dot poodle skirt, grab a partner (or fly solo), and start swinging! Just don’t hurt yourself in the process. The Sons of Hermann Hall hosts swing dancing lessons every Wednesday from 8 p.m. until midnight. Learn how to successfully swing with the best of them whether you’re a dance machine or have two left feet - you'll fit right in.

YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD ARTIST: Art is not something that has to be elite to be appreciated. The new exhibit on display at TCU’s Moudy Art Gallery in the Department of Art and Art History is an example of that.  “Art in the Metroplex” features the work of average people from all counties in the metroplex who created artwork with their own merits. See the work of your neighbors in the gallery on display until September 30.
