This morning, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra announced a four-week schedule of concerts, performances, and happenings for the fifth annual Soluna International Music & Arts Festival, which is coming from April 4 through April 28. While anchored by DSO performances, the festival aims to draw a connection from the lofty world of classical music to modern life in Dallas.

There are a lot of intriguing events heading our way this April. Among the most exciting is from Grammy Award-winning trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard, who will partake in two events during Soluna. On April 7, he'll appear at Alamo Drafthouse Cedars for a screening of Spike Lee's 25th Hour and an artist talk. Blanchard has written the music for all the director's films, including BlacKkKlansman, which got him another Grammy nomination. On April 9 at The Majestic Theatre, Blanchard will join choreographer Rennie Harris and Dallas-based visual artist Andrew Scott for the premiere of Caravan: A Revolution on the Road, an interdisciplinary performance focused on the role of art in racial healing.
