The second event that is taking place on February 8th is the Odysseus Chamber Orchestra's A Soldier's Tale! I don't know about where you guys grew up, but in my elementary school we had field trips, not only to the Dallas Symphony, but also to the opera and I loved it all! I wish that I could play an instrument, but I was not particularly studious in the piano lessons that my parents got me as a child. I actually loved my piano lessons because my teacher was an older lady and we would play the piano for a while and then end every lesson playing dominoes...I got really good at dominoes.
Not only is the orchestra performing, but there will also be a pre-concert presentation beginning at 2:15 and there will also be a dance performance accompanying the orchestra. The Heard-Craig Hall, located at 306 N Church St, McKinney, Texas, is a lovely, more intimate setting so you'll get the opportunity to really enjoy the musicians and dancers. It will be a busy Sunday, but I think we can do it: Head to heARTS for ART at 1:30 p.m. for some arts and crafts fun, sneak out to enjoy the music and movement of the Odysseus Chamber Orchestra at 3 p.m., and we should be able to make it back to heARTS for ART for some last minute bids on the silent auction goodies! Are you in?!?
