Graeme and Alexander

by Suzanne Calvin

No, it’s not an Ingmar Bergman film. Music Director Graeme Jenkins and Chorus Master Alexander Rom will be engaging in community outreach outside their usual environment both this week and next, between performances of “Anna Bolena.”

The Dallas Museum of Art’s “State of the Arts” series continues on Thursday evening (November 11th) at 7:30 PM in Horchow Auditorium. KERA host and senior producer Jeff Whittington will moderate this conversation with key arts leaders “about the arts and cultural landscape of Dallas.”

Graeme will be joined onstage by John Coyne, Director of Design for Theatre Projects, who collaborated on the design of the Wyly Theatre and has designed a host of DTC production’s from “Pride and Prejudice” to the company’s latest: “Henry IV.”

The discussion itself is free but museum access is not and reservations are encouraged. Call 214.922.1818 or visit

Then on Saturday, November 20th at 2:00 PM, you have a unique opportunity to hear our talented Chorus Master, Alexander Rom, and members of the Dallas Opera Orchestra (Nikki Velonis, Anastasia Markina and Carmen Chapa) performing his compositions -- live -- at the Edgemere, 8523 Thackery Street, Dallas, 75225 (valet parking is available). This presentation by the Puccini Society of Dallas will include a dialogue between the composer, musicians and guests. The price is $25 for Society Members, $30 for guests, $10 for students, opera chorus and orchestra members. For reservations, call 214.522.9309. Seating is limited, so call now.

We hope you can make both these outstanding programs!
