Symphony Partners with Local 'Green Groups' this Sunday to Keep America Beautiful
The New Texas Symphony Orchestra partners with Green Dallas and other organizations dedicated to building a greener city and presents 'All American,' a concert event celebrating the beauty and majesty of America through music, art, and knowledge.
WHO: New Texas Symphony Orchestra
WHAT: All American, an Earth Month event
WHEN: Sunday, April 10, 2016, 3:00 p.m.
WHERE: Dallas City Performance Hall, 2520 Flora St., Dallas, TX 75201
WHY: To help keep America beautiful through music, art, and knowledge.
HOW MUCH: $25.00
The NTSO will celebrate the beauty and majesty of America by performing an afternoon of symphonic compositions by Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein and other American composers while simultaneously working to preserve and protect the country's distinctive ecological and agricultural environment, thanks in part to a special Arts Respond Project grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts.
The NTSO initially partnered with Green Dallas, a civic-sponsored organization dedicated to "building a greener city," to invite local "green" organizations to provide information to concert patrons about water conservation, air quality, urban forestry, and other related topics important to conserving the natural environment. During the concert, the NTSO will project imagery from some of North Texas' many beautiful natural resources while the orchestra is playing.
Other organizations participating in All-American include the Sustainable Communities Institute, The Trinity River Corridor Project, The Dallas County Community College District Sustainability Summit at Cedar Valley College, the Cathedral of Hope, Dallas Stormwater Management, the City of Dallas Office of Environmental Quality, and 2nd2Nunn Photography.
About Green Dallas - During the past five decades, population of the city of Dallas has nearly doubled -- growing from 679,000 in 1960 to more than 1.2 million people today. To support this rapid growth, develop a sustainable community, and reduce Dallas' impact on the electrical grid, the city created the Green Dallas Initiative with support from the Energy Department's Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) Program. The program supports initiatives to improve air quality, educate the public on issues surrounding climate change, and other pressing issues including alternative energy resources, food matters, land preservation, recycling, and water quality.
