Top of the Strings - January 27th

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/1/26 23:30:00 (570 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowThe Lewisville Lake Symphony's International Chamber Series presents "Top of the Strings", a program of Bartok, Schumann, and Tchaikovsky played by young artists from The Institute For Strings. The concert is on Friday, January 27, 2012, at 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 5500 Morriss Road in Flower Mound. The program is presented in cooperation with the College of Music at the University of North Texas. The concert is free. A donation to the Symphony is appreciated.

The Institute For Strings was established in 1996 by Jan Mark Sloman, for many years the Principal Associate Concert Master of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. It runs for two weeks each June and attracts young musicians from all over the United States.

The four Institute artists performing in the "Top of the Strings", each with the prospect of a great musical career ahead of them, are Jordan Lee and Christine Wu, violins, Matthew Geise, viola, and Brian Zhao, cello. The Symphony's website, www.lewisvillesymphony.org, has a YouTube of the quartet practicing for the concert.

The two violinists play a series of duets by Bella Bartok, each requiring increased virtuosity. Christine Wu and international pianist Pamela Mia Paul, recently back from a concert tour in China, perform Schumann's Sonata for Violin and Piano. The quartet joins together for Tchaikovsky's String Quartet Number 1.

MCL Grand to celebrate first anniversary with “Mama’s Party” on Jan. 14

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2012/1/12 23:44:09 (467 reads)

Open in new windowTalented performers from across North Texas will converge on the Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater on Saturday, Jan. 14, to help celebrate the facility’s first anniversary.

The event also will include the opening reception for “Our Town,” a new gallery exhibit by Visual Art League (VAL). Admission is $10, with all proceeds benefitting the 88 Keys campaign toward a Steinway concert grand piano at MCL Grand.

“Our Town” will open at 6:30 p.m. with a reception and cash bar. The exhibit theme is historic Lewisville, and VAL artists will present interpretations in various media of historic and contemporary scenes reflecting Lewisville’s rich heritage. The show will remain in the gallery through Feb. 25. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 1-5 p.m. To schedule group visits during other hours, call 972.219.8446.

“Mama’s Party” will start at 8 p.m. in the Performance Hall. This popular activity brings together some of the finest musical theater talent in North Texas for a casual showcase of scenes and songs. It has been a weekly fixture at Contemporary Theater of Dallas, making a special visit to mark the MCL Grand anniversary.

Amy Stevenson (“Mama”) is an experienced local entertainer with deep ties to regional theater, and she invites her friends to come sing, play and perform. The result is a mixture of new and veteran North Texas performers who combine to put on a show that audience members will never forget.

Steinway Hall has donated the use of a nine-foot Steinway grand piano for the evening. Scheduled performers so far include Stephanie Riggs, Jay Gardner, and Michael Smith, but the lineup is always changing and many more familiar faces from local theaters are expected.

Pennies and Pies: Pie Contest Benefiting Denton County's Abused Children Protection Fund

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
 Posted by WhosPlayin on 2011/10/31 14:00:00 (802 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowOn November 4th from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Oakmont Country Club in Corinth will be hosting the Pennies and Pies pie contest benefiting the Denton County Abused Children Protection Fund.

Do you bake an awesome pie? Want to have it declared the best pie in Denton County? Know a professional baker or restaurant looking to prove its stuff? If so, then you need to know about Pennies and Pies.

Entrants will supply pies to be judged by the general public, who will vote for their favorites by stuffing some cash in the jar for each pie. The pie that gets the most money reigns victorious, and all proceeds go to a worthy organization.

Live music will be provided by 415 Echo.

Abused Children Protection Fund is a non profit 501(C)3 organization focused on aiding the abused and neglected children of Denton County, Texas. The organization is administered and managed by the Denton County Child Protective Services Board, a 15 member, county wide board which oversees Child Protective Services in Denton County. These citizens are appointed by the Denton County Commissioners Court.

All funds raised by Abused Children Protection Fund of Denton County, Inc. support abused and neglected children and their families (including foster and adopted families) and encourage education about the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Because the organization is administered by volunteers, no overhead or administrative cost are involved.
