Things to Do in Dallas Tonight: June 20

PrintMan. James Gandolfini.

The Turtle Creek Chorale always puts on a tremendous performance, and this particular concert is a one-night-only affair. Grammy-winning Christian music singer Sandi Patty joins the 200-strong voices of the TCC, with powerful musical selections that fit the evening’s theme of “inspiration and hope.”  We could all use a little bit more of both these days, perhaps? Tickets are still available online, and for a little bit of a change, I’d do Stampede 66 tonight for dinner. It’s such a nice (well, less nice now that it’s summertime) walk back to the Meyerson now that you can amble through the park.

Also tonight, there’s the TEDxSMU speaker auditions at the Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff. Eleven of Dallas’ bravest thinkers and creatives will get up and present their six-minute talk on the subject of his or her choosing. A panel of past speakers will judge who gets to take their talk to the actual TEDxSMU symposium in October. Our friend and contributor Bill Holston, the executive director of the Human Rights Initiative of North Texas, is among the participants, and his topic is why immigration makes this country great. Nova‘s your best bet for drinks and food, since it’s just up the road, and the pumpkin pizza is oh so delicious.

For more to do tonight, go here.

    The Kessler rocked last night. They had eleven awesome presentations, well, one of them was a heart breaker and then heart warmer.

    They asked the audience to only vote for one and I bet that for most of us it was personal.
