Meadows at the Meyerson

We hope you can join us for the 21st anniversary of SMU Meadows School of the Arts’ annual spring gala, “Meadows at the Meyerson 2014,” which directly supports student scholarships. As in the past six years, proceeds from the event will be dedicated to the extremely successful Meadows Scholars initiative, which continues to raise the profile of Meadows nationally and internationally.

This year, Meadows at the Meyerson will feature the critically acclaimed Meadows Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor Paul Phillips, performing two Italian-themed works that paint vivid pictures of their subjects. Church Windows (1926) by Ottorino Respighi, one of the most popular modern Italian composers, is a full orchestration of his earlier composition Three Piano Preludes on Gregorian Melodies, and is known for its gorgeous sound. Each of its four movements has traditionally been associated with themes found in stained glass windows, including “The Flight into Egypt” and “St. Michael Archangel.” Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4, or “Italian” symphony, was inspired by the composer’s grand tour of Europe from 1829 to 1831. The work “strives to convey a series of impressions of Italy – Mediterranean sunshine, religious solemnity, monumental art and architecture and open countryside.”
