Presented by the Denison Arts Council in collaboration with the City of Denison, Denison Ministerial Alliance, and Waples Methodist Church. Join us on September 14th, 2019 at 1:00 pm at Waples Memorial United Methodist Church 830 W. Main Street, Denison for a free performance by the Dallas Street Choir. Tickets are first come first serve.
The Dallas Street Choir, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established in October 2014 by its current conductor, Dr. Jonathan Palant. To date, over 2,000 individuals have attended at least one of our weekly rehearsals amassing more than 15,000 hours of cultural enrichment. In addition to presenting concerts at The Stewpot and the newly-built amphitheater adjacent to The Stewpot, the Dallas Street Choir has performed at the Winspear Opera House, the Dallas City Performance Hall, the George W. Bush Presidential Library, for both area private and public school students, and at other venues throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area. The choir has sung alongside opera stars Frederica von Stade and Joyce DiDonato, composer Jake Heggie, and, in November 2015, welcomed Mrs. Laura Bush, along with Mr. and Mrs. Ross Perot to our stage. In June 2017, the Dallas Street Choir made history when it became the first musical ensemble comprised those experiencing homelessness to perform at New York City’s Carnegie Hall. In 2018, the ensemble was invited to perform for the Texas Choral Directors Association statewide convention in San Antonio and, in 2019, the choir traveled to Kansas City to sing at the American Choral Directors Association National Conference.
The tagline for the Dallas Street Choir is “Homeless, Not Voiceless.”
