Bruce Jaster, Executive Director of the Turtle Creek Chorale, says, “The centuries-old custom of people gathering in the salon to sing, play and dance for one another is magnificently civilized and great fun! There are so many accomplished arts organizations in Dallas, and it will be wonderful to be able to experience some of the best ones all together in one evening.”
“We are so excited about bringing all this talent together at one time,” adds Gayle Halperin, Director of the Bruce Wood Dance Project. “This event will be a sampling of great performances — something that is usually just impossible to find.
