Dallas Chamber Symphony poised to “fill a gap in the city’s musical offerings”
“Dallas Chamber Symphony’s Richard McKay Talks What The Chamber Symphony Can Do for Dallas,” writes Katie Womack of the Dallas Observer.
In a piece published by the Dallas Observer, Katie Womack writes about artistic director and conductor, Richard McKay, and the Dallas Chamber Symphony’s mission. The Dallas Chamber Symphony presents a variety of concerts featuring chamber orchestra, film scores live to film as well as visiting chamber groups. The DCS also provides educational programming for kids and an International Piano Competition.
“The Dallas Chamber Symphony could potentially fill a gap in the city’s musical offerings. A chamber symphony is smaller than a full symphony orchestra, topping out at around 36 members. They typically perform more intimate and sometimes more obscure symphonic literature in smaller, less formal settings. The musicians in this organization are paid professionals, many of whom already play in either for the Fort Worth symphony or for the Dallas Opera, and who, according to McKay, are eager to have this outlet for smaller, more transparent performances. Since many large cities support both full symphony orchestras and chamber symphonies, McKay was right to see the potential.” ~ Katie Womack, the Dallas Observer
