Opera stars, Frederica von Stade, Joyce DiDonato, Ailyn Pérez, Anthony Roth Costanzo, Rodell Rosel, and composer/pianist Jake Heggie join the Dallas Street Choir in “The Opera Lover’s Broadway: Great Voices Sing Broadway’s Favorite Hits” on Friday, November 13, 2015 at Hamon Hall inside the AT&T Performing Arts Center’s Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and will last approximately 90-minute with no intermission.
This one-night only, intimate performance benefits the Dallas Street Choir, a musical outlet for those experiencing homelessness and severe disadvantage. Jonathan Palant, founder and director of this nonprofit organization, says, “The Dallas Street Choir offers a community for those in need of one. Our members have the opportunity to practice responsibility, commitment, and professionalism, as well as improve their musical skill. We strive to build the self-esteem of our singers through a variety of performance-based activities. Over 300 individuals have attended at least one Dallas Street Choir rehearsal since its inception one year ago.”
World-renowned mezzo-soprano, Frederica von Stade first performed with the Dallas Street Choir in January 2015, and continues actively to champion our singers and our mission. “I’m so excited to see my friends in the Dallas Street Choir again, and to have the opportunity to sing in their honor. We all shared a very special musical experience together, and it means—and will always mean a great deal to me. I salute each and every member of the Choir and am excited to be a part of this benefit performance.”
