Dallas Symphony Orchestra to play at Paul Quinn College
During the Paul Quinn concert, actress Irma P. Hall and playwright/actor Eugene Lee will receive the school’s 2011 Outstanding Achievement in the Arts Award.
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra has announced their 2011 Community Concert Series. This year they will make a stop at Paul Quinn College for an outdoor concert on the school’s campus. The free concert will take place June 7 starting at 8 p.m. on the lawn of the Richard Allen Chapel. It will last for about an hour.
The entire symphony will perform and the theme of the concert is “Dances Around the World.” The Dallas Symphony is partnering with Dallas Parks and Recreation Department, The Office of Cultural Affairs and Atmos Energy to put on the Paul Quinn concert.
I had the chance to attend one of DSO’s community concerts last year at Kidd Springs Park. I was encouraged by the support of the community, surprised by the intimate feel of the outdoor event, and amazed by the music and sound. I hope that the concert at Paul Quinn is supported in a similar fashion.
Also during the Paul Quinn concert, actress Irma P. Hall and playwright/actor Eugene Lee will receive the school’s 2011 Outstanding Achievement in the Arts Award. District 8 City Councilman Tennell Atkins is also expected to be in attendance.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their family, friends, food, picnic baskets, and lawn chairs to enjoy this outdoor, scenic, and entertaining evening. The rain site for the concert has been designated as the Grand Lounge/Student Union.
