President John F. Kennedy Memorial Concert

| February 8, 2013 | Calendar

Jaap van Zweden and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will honor President John F. Kennedy in special memorial concerts Nov. 21-24 at the Meyerson Symphony Center. The program will include world premiere performances of the The World is Very Different Now, a special DSO commission by young American composer Conrad Tao, supported in part by awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and TACA.

Tao will bring new musical perspectives to the shock and tragedy of Kennedy’s assassination on Friday, Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas. The World is Very Different Now hopes to inspire fresh insights into the on-going historical and social implications that reverberate from that dark day.
