“Dreams” rarely become what they seem. And that may very well be the overriding theme of the Turtle Creek Chorale’s season-closing concert, IN YOUR DREAMS, at the Dallas City Performance Hall Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 2-4.
This concert, featuring some of the most beautiful music ever performed by the Chorale, will open with a look at the dreams of a child — what does the future hold? Then for the next two hours or so, the audience will be swept through their own dreams in search of their very own “corner of the sky”.
Along the way, with some music that is being world-premiered for the first time, a few stirring old favorites, numbers enhanced with dance and selections augmented by thrilling multimedia, the Turtle Creek Chorale will take the audience into dreams that become nightmares and dreams that end in bliss.
“This concert explores so much,” says the Chorale’s Artistic Director Sean Baugh. “We detour through issues of immigration, race, inequality, drug abuse — and present stories in music about those topics. Meth abuse, rapidly becoming epidemic in many communities including among our LGBT friends, will be a focus. But we don’t leave anyone in despair. All dreams will create a pathway to positive resolution.”
Premiering in concert for the first time at IN YOUR DREAMS will be a number commissioned by the Turtle Creek Chorale titled “Be at My Side” by Gerald Gruss. This song reflects upon and honors the Dallas police officers who were killed in the July, 2016 ambush. The lyrics incorporate the word of the policemen’s honor code.
Affiliating with the Chorale for this concert are Drug Prevention Resources of Richardson, Resource Center’s Behavioral Health and Youth First Texas programs, Abounding Prosperity and the Human Rights Initiative of North Texas. Each of these organizations will have representatives on hand with information about their respective projects.
This concert series brings to a close the rousingly successful 37th season of the Turtle Creek Chorale. TCC has been playing to sold-out houses at the Dallas City Performance Hall throughout the year. This concert, which culminates the season, has all the earmarks of being the most stunning presentation of the entire season.
