“Symphony goes Wild!!”
May 13, 8 PM
Las Colinas Symphony continues “Symphony goes Wild!!” at the Irving Arts Center, Carpenter Hall.
Composers have always taken inspiration from nature, so it is no surprise that many have picked up their pens to give us musical depictions of the fascinating creatures with whom we share the planet. Throughout the 2016-17 Season, the talented musicians of the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra will offer our audience the most delightful and entertaining of these philharmonic fauna, from the smallest (Shostakovich’s gadfly) to the largest (Saint-Saëns’ elephants). Our musical zoo will include bears (Haydn and Bartok), horses (Auber), penguins (Scott), and even a cow (Milhaud). A few mythical animals will come to musical life, as well, including Stravinsky’s Firebird and Debussy’s Faun. It’s a symphonic safari not to be missed!
Season tickets as low as $60! Single tickets are priced at $16.50, $26.50, $36.50 and $46.50. All are available by telephone (972.252.4800), fax (972.252.4877), or email (firstname.lastname@example.org ).

MainStage Irving-Las Colinas will present Horton Foote’s Texas-based drama. Directed by Amber Devlin, the production at the Irving Arts Center’s Dupree Theater (3333 N. MacArthur Blvd., Irving, TX 75062). All evening performances are at 7:30 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Single tickets range from $19-28 and are on sale now at the Irving Arts Center Box Office (972.252.2787/ www.irvingartscenter.com).

The play is set in 1929, on the eve of the Great Depression, and America is on the precipice of big change with a looming financial crisis. In the small town of Harrison, Texas, the residents of a local boarding house deal with numerous dilemmas, both large and small. Quarrels arise between estranged husbands and wives, the future of a railroad engineer hangs in the balance, and the town is turned upside down with the coming of the ‘talkies’ to the local movie theatre. It’s the end of an era, and a job, for the woman who plays live music for the films.
Tickets to TALKING PICTURES are on sale now and can be purchased by calling the Irving Arts Center’s Box Office at 972.252.2787 or by ordering tickets online at www.irvingartscenter.com.
