    Music & Masterpieces presented in partnership with the Dallas Museum of Art

    It’s the perfect mix of music and visual art! Enjoy a spirited afternoon with a recital featuring mezzo-soprano Sarah Mesko as she performs classical selections with a “libations” theme. Ms. Mesko will be coming off her Metropolitan Opera debut after having placed 3rd in the 2015 Dallas Opera Guild Vocal Competition. In a perfect pairing, immediately following the recital, patrons may visit the Dallas Museum of Art’s exhibit Shaken, Stirred, Styled: The Art of the Cocktail. The exhibition follows the development of the modern cocktail from the late 19th century to the present day, tracing the stylistic reflections of the rituals of the cocktail’s concoction, presentation, and consumption through metalware, glassware, and ceramics. A tour* will be led by a DMA docent. Join us for this FREE “intoxicating” presentation!

    *Space is limited. Patrons can sign up to attend the tour the day of the performance.
