Dallas Symphony: Beethoven and Schubert
Okay, I promise I'll quit with all the Trek references. Someday soon, anyway. Hey, it's bound to become a problem, since the local cable doesn't carry Sci Fi. And yes, I know, Spike or USA or TNT or some of those networks do carry Trek re-runs. It's probably time to catch a few of them again, since it's been a while.
Maestro Claus Peter Flor completes his two-week residency at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra with Beethoven's complete Egmont and Schubert's Symphony N. 9. Actor John deLancie, known to millions as Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation, will narrate the gripping story of the Dutch patriot Egmont, accompanied by Beethoven's powerful music. Also on the program: Schubert's Symphony No. 9, the "Great" C Major Symphony. Schubert admired Beethoven all of his life, and if one listens closely, it's easy to hear Beethoven's influences in what's considered one of Schubert's best works. The Casual Friday concert starts at 7:30pm and has no intermission. Thurs. and Sat. concerts start at 8pm, and Sun. matinee starts at 2:30pm. Tickets range from $15 to $100.

And in the meantime, I might just have to see about doing a Dallas day next week and trying to catch DeLancie AND do the art museum's Tiffany exhibit.
