An Intimate Evening With Andrew Schast
The Innovators of the Dallas Symphony cordially invite you to our Behind the Scenes meeting on September 12, 2017.  Our guest Musician is Mr. Andrew Schast who plays in the First Violin Section of the Dallas Symphony.  The violin has gone through many changes in shapes/colors, bows and names.  Violins have been depicted in a variety of paintings throughout history.  It is said that the first violin makers were from Northern Italy. The violin is a descendant from the viol family of instruments. Their antiquity gives them special value.  Not all the bows and sounds are the same!   Mr. Schast will delight you as he plays for us and tells us about his experiences with the Dallas Symphony.  This will be an evening of camaraderie, musical education and joy as you enjoy hors d'oeuvres and wine in the lovely home of Sarah and Don  Warnecke.

The Innovators of the Dallas Symphony cordially invite you to our Behind the Scenes meeting on March 13, 2018.  Our guest musician is Mr. Mathew Good, Principal Tuba of the Dallas Symphony. The Tuba is a fascinating instrument; its presence and shiny color cannot be ignored, it can be gold or silver.  Very popular also in Marching Bands where it is cheered with joy.   The Tuba was born in 1835.  Its construction is complicated. It requires an outstanding Tuba player. Most orchestras have a single Tuba with exceptions.  It reinforces sounds of other instruments.  Mr. Good is the perfect artist to enrich our knowledge about the Tuba.  This will be an evening of camaraderie, musical education and joy as you enjoy hors d'oeuvres and wine in a private home.
