World premiere of 'The Bridges of Dallas' symphony by noted 20-year old local composer
New Texas Symphony Orchestra season finale concert includes first-ever performance of Symphony No. 3 by Quinn Mason, inspired by four Dallas bridges: The Margaret McDermott Bridge, the Ronald Kirk Pedestrian Footbridge, Klyde Warren Park, and the Margaret Hunt-Hill Bridge.
The new four-movement work was inspired by the bridges of Dallas: Margaret McDermott Bridge, Klyde Warren Park, Ronald Kirk Bridge, and Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. The NTSO commissioned Dallas composer Quinn Mason, a recent gradate of North Dallas High School, to write a symphony that reflects the uniqueness of their beauty and design.
"When Cathy Brown approached me about creating a new work based on four notable bridges in Dallas, I was beyond excited and sort of intimidated,"
Mason is currently studying composition with Dr. Blaise Ferrandino at Texas Christian University. He previously worked with Dr. Jordan Kuspa at Richland College and also studied with Dr. Winston Stone from the University of Texas at Dallas. Among Quinn's accomplishments in his young career, he was recently named one of three winners in the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra's young composer's composition contest. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra commissioned Mason to compose a new symphonic work to be premiered in fall 2019. https://www.youtube.com/
