canceled! Dallas Symphony Orchestra: James Ehnes Directs All-British Program featuring Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending

April 16-18
7:30 pm

A colorful compendium of English music! From Purcell’s stately Baroque Chacony and Britten’s quiet Lachrymae to works that feature the DSO’s Artist-in-Residence as soloist (and tonight’s director): the pastoral Lark Ascending, with the solo violin echoing the bird’s exquisite morning song; and, joined by Concertmaster Alexander Kerr, Holst’s rarely heard jewel: the compact Double Violin Concerto.
