Shreveport Little Theatre’s Christmas show, HONKY TONK ANGELS HOLIDAY SPECTACULAR, by Ted Swindley, will open December 8. The musical is directed and choreographed by Denise Dion. Kermit Poling speaks with music director Robert Young.
Marshall, TX- A fusion of classical and contemporary music on both traditional and electric strings, the Dallas String Quartet will be at Memorial City Hall on Tuesday Dec. 20th at 7:30pm for a special holiday concert event. Sponsored by Verabank, this show is sure to delight both young and old alike! Tickets are on sale now at www.memorialcityhall.com or call the Box Office at 903-934-7992 Mon-Fri 8-5.
An international music sensation, Dallas String Quartet is known for interpretations of an eclectic range of styles, creating tasteful renditions of both modern and pop music classics in addition to updated takes on more traditional forms of music. With the 2019 release of their fifth album "A Very Merry Christmas with Dallas String Quartet" they presented 10 contemporary interpretations of classic holiday music.
“The Dallas String Quartet is one of the most unique and visionary artists of our time.”
DSQ was founded by Ion Zanca after moving to the U.S. from Romania in 2002. Zanca's mission when he formed DSQ Electric was "to disturb and innovate an industry and a style of music that has been done the same way for centuries.” Using both traditional and electric strings, the Dallas String Quartet plays everything from Bach to Bon Jovi in inventive arrangements that show how music from such seemingly different genres use the same notes to move the listener. Blurring the lines between classical, rock and pop music, the Dallas String Quartet utilizes its bevy of unique arrangements to provide a truly original program that keeps its audience in a constant state of awe.
“Our mission at MCH is to present cultural arts programs that engage all audiences. Many people, even those who enjoy a wide range of popular music styles, don’t think they like classical music. Dallas String Quartet is a great example of how the emotional power of music and dynamic performance are often very similar – whether it’s Bach or Bon Jovi.”, said Glenn Barnhart, Manager of Memorial City Hall.
In addition to performing internationally, DSQ has played "at home" for Presidents Obama and Bush, the College Football Playoff, NBA, and NFL organizations. DSQ has sold out concert venues like the House of Blues and symphony halls alike. They have played alongside Josh Groban, Chicago, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra
“This show will certainly sell-out, so get your tickets now before they’re gone!”
All shows at Memorial City Hall are presented in association with the 92.3 The Depot, QX-FM, AMI Radio Group, Stagecoach Media, The Marshall News Messenger, and 103.9 KMHT with a special thanks to the Texas Commission on the Arts for their support!
