"Robert Shaw - Man of Many Voices"
FREE FILM SCREENING
Thursday, November 16, 2017
7:30 PM
SMU Meadows School - O'Donnell Hall


Robert Shaw
Join the Dallas Symphony Chorus and SMU School of Music for a viewing of the documentary film Robert Shaw - Man of Many Voices. Hailed as “poignant and compelling” by the New York Times, this documentary explores the music, life, and legacy of the man better known as "the father of American choral music."

Without any formal training, Shaw managed to become the Maestro of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Through his belief in the power of community, Shaw used music to champion the cause of Civil Rights in the middle of the 20th century.

This event is free and open to the public and is perfect for both long-time music connoisseurs and lovers of unique documentaries.
