Harry Potter in Concert

Last Sunday Keltin and I got to watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone with the wonderful scores of the film performed live by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. The symphony orchestra was fantastic. Music live brings a bit more magic to the movie. Also, there is something wonderful about enjoying a movie with hundreds of

TCHAIKOVSKY PIANO CONCERTO NO. 1: Dallas, TX

Keltin and I have had a busy week but we still found time to squeeze in a performance by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. We always love going because the music sweeps you away. Hearing it in person, feeling the vibrations in the air, the pounding of the drums reverberation in your own chest is magical.

Mumford and Sons: Dallas, TX

Keltin and I love a good show but typically we go to symphonies and musicals but we changed it up this time and saw Mumford and Sons at the American Airlines Center. The music was fantastic and perfect to sing along to. They opened with Guiding Light and played a nice mix of new and

Musical Review: Hello, Dolly!

Keltin and I recently saw Hello, Dolly! at the Dallas Summer Musicals. We are almost to the end of the season with only Fiddler of the Roof left after this. Hello, Dolly! was first performed on Broadway in 1964. Some of the ideas in this play are a bit older but they are charming. The

Weekend Wondering: Anastasia

Another musical enjoyed. February has been a busy month for musicals. Not only did Keltin and I get to see The Book of Mormon but I also got to see Anastasia with my Grandmother. My Grandmother helped to foster a love of musicals as a child. I remember watching The Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, and West Side Story at her house. This musical shares

Weekend Wanderings: The Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon, a Tony Award winning musical, finally came to the Dallas Summer Musicals. When I was looking at tickets last year this was one that Keltin wanted to see along with Hamilton. That performance is later this year. We laughed through the entire performance. The Book of Mormon was written by the creators of South Park. Thus

Having loved it so much we decided that we needed to go to some more shows at the Meyerson. The first of which was Dvorak’s New World Symphony. Of course the New World Symphony is not the only thing
