An Evening of French Delights
Benefiting Voices of Change

Dallas, TX 75206

Join us for an enchanting evening of French Food, Wine and Words from Dr. Jack Waldenmaier, composer and former SMU faculty.

Jo Boatright, our Founding Artistic Director, was soloist for the premiere of Jack’s piano concerto, Capriccio in 1982. Voices of Change then performed his Nine Premonitions and later commissioned Jack’s Thresholds and presented its world premiere.

Jack will present his brief talk,
All the Right Wrong Notes
How French composers surreptitiously invented atonality.

Jack-Waldenmaier

Proceeds will help with the costs of our upcoming concerts.
We look forward to hosting you, our friends, and to the opportunity for conversation and dining together.
