Cliburn at the Kimbell - Rising Stars of the Metropolitan Opera
Presented by: Cliburn Concerts
Dates / Times:
Thursday, 10/22/2015 7:30 PM

“The Rising Stars of the Metropolitan Opera” offers fans across North America a rare opportunity to experience remarkable young artists on the cusp of extraordinary careers.

For more than 125 years, the Metropolitan Opera has been the artistic home of the greatest singers in the world. But the Met is also the launching pad for the opera stars of the future. Some of today’s leading artists got their first big break by winning the company’s national auditions, by being members of the young artist program, or by catching the attention of Met talent scouts. Stephanie Blythe, Renée Fleming, Susan Graham, Deborah Voigt, Thomas Hampson, and Mariusz Kwiecien are just a few of the major artists to have come through the Met ranks. Another generation of young singers is waiting in the wings to be discovered, and we’ll be among the first to hear them.

An Acoustic Evening with
Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt

Presented by: Performing Arts Fort Worth
Dates / Times:
Monday, 11/02/2015 7:30 PM
Two of America's greatest singer-songwriters, Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt, will come together for an intimate evening of songs and stories.

A Grammy Award-winning singer, composer and actor, Lovett is one of music's most vibrant and iconic performers. The Texan has broadened the definition of American music, fusing elements of country, swing, jazz, folk, gospel and blues in a manner that defies convention. It is no surprise that the Americana Music Association awarded him its inaugural Trailblazer Award.

John Hiatt is a talented singer and guitarist best known for his prolific songwriting. His songs have been covered by musicians from Bonnie Raitt and the Neville Brothers to Iggy Pop and Three Dog Night. With 11 Grammy nominations and two dozen albums to his name, he was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and won the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award.

An Acoustic Evening with Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt will be a spur-of-the-moment concert, Lovett says. "The show that John and I do is not scripted in any way, and we do not discuss at all what we're going to play," Lovett told Pop Matters. "John always plays first - we go in alphabetical order - and what I play is determined or suggested by what he plays first. And we just go from there. It's very relaxed, a free exchange."

David Sedaris
Presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth and MagicSpace Entertainment, Inc.
Dates / Times:
Thursday, 11/05/2015 7:30 PM
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humor writers. The great skill with which he slices through cultural euphemisms and political correctness proves that Sedaris is a master of satire and one of the most observant writers addressing the human condition today.

David Sedaris is the author of "Barrel Fever" and "Holidays on Ice," as well as collections of personal essays, "Naked," "Me Talk Pretty One Day," "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim," "When You Are Engulfed in Flames," and his most recent book, "Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls," each of which became an immediate bestseller.

He is the author of The New York Times-bestselling collection of fables entitled "Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary."

His original radio pieces can often be heard on This American Life, distributed nationally by Public Radio International and produced by WBEZ. Sedaris has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for Best Spoken Word and Best Comedy Album. A feature film adaptation of his story "C.O.G." was released after a premier at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

His playing quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity. – Gramophone “Editor’s Choice”
