Innovators Extra
11/5/2017
3:00 to 5:00 PM
Please join the Innovators for a very special Sunday afternoon.
 
Gayle Ross, an expert on Da Vinci's The Last Supper,  will reveal the mystery and relevance of the painting on our world today.
 
In 1495, in a Dominican convent, Leonardo da Vinci began work on The Last Supper. He was poorly paid, he had no experience with fresco painting, and had a well-deserved reputation as a starter - not a finisher. Yet Leonardo did finish The Last Supper and it has become one of the most beloved masterpieces of all time.
 
Gayle will strip away the myths surrounding this work and replace them with fascinating, real stories about the politics of the time, the elements in the painting, and Leonardo as an artist and a true Renaissance man.
 
Wine and cheese will be served as we start the afternoon off with a selection typical of what would have been performed during Leonardo’s time by one of the Young Strings.
 
A $20 donation is requested for both members and guests.
 
Mike Pugh and Susan Dwyer will be graciously hosting us.

The Innovators of the Dallas Symphony cordially invite you to our Behind the Scenes meeting on March 13, 2018.  Our guest musician is Mr. Matthew 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.

The Innovators of the Dallas Symphony cordially invite you to our Behind the Scenes meeting on May 8, 2018.   Our guest musician is Mr. Thomas Booth, Assistant Principal Trumpet of the Dallas Symphony. The Trumpet like many other instruments has gone through several modifications in shape, size and color.  An instrument of the past and present, very popular in hunting, wars, wedding, farewells, triumphs, etc. Trumpets are used in various arts music styles and cultures.  Trumpet players must have a special ability with hands and lips.  Mr. Booth will delight us with a short piece and as well he has much to say about his musical career.  This will be an evening of camaraderie, musical education and joy as you enjoy hors d'oeuvres and wine in the lovely home of Ginger and Rodney Sager
