The 24th annual gala benefit for SMU Meadows will feature the critically acclaimed Meadows Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor Paul Phillips, in the presentation of three works. Opening the program is Debussy’s Nocturnes, dreamlike evocations of clouds, sea and light inspired by the paintings of Whistler and J.M.W. Turner. The Meadows Chorale, Meadows Concert Choir and Diva Dolce, directed by Pamela Elrod Huffman, will then join the MSO in the jubilant choral masterwork Gloria by Poulenc, a beautiful and uplifting setting of the Catholic Gloria in excelsis Deo text. The featured guest soloist will be award-winning soprano and Meadows alumna Katrina Galka. Rounding out the program is Ravel’s La Valse, which the composer called his “choreographic poem for orchestra”; the music conjures whirling crowds of waltzing couples in an imperial court with unmistakable brooding undertones. Proceeds from the event provide scholarships for the Meadows Scholars Program, aimed at recruiting the brightest and most talented students to SMU and Dallas.
