The Basically Beethoven Festival this year, put on by Dallas’ Fine Arts Chamber Players, presents free concerts on Sunday afternoons in July at Moody Performance Hall (formerly Dallas City Performance Hall). Awesome. But the lineup this Sunday, in particular, makes it even better.
The featured performers are my dad, Stephen Nielson, and my sister, Caroline. As my dad is a concert pianist and my sister is a mezzo soprano, he’ll be playing and she’ll be singing. Dallas Symphony Orchestra violinist Motoi Takeda will also be joining them for works by Beethoven (of course), Francis Poulenc, and Amy Beach. It’s going to be great. And it won’t cost you a thing.
When: Sunday at 3 p.m., but get there early to snag a seat.
Where: 2520 Flora St.
Why: You’ll get to hear quality music from quality musicians (I would know). And it’s free. Did I mention it’s free?
