DBR (DANIEL BERNARD ROUMAIN) IN CONCERT

Darwin’s Meditation for The People of Lincoln
Thursday, February 25, 2010 at 8 P.M. at the Winspear Opera House

Having carved a reputation for himself as an innovative composer, performer, violinist, and band leader, Haitian-American artist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) melds his classical music roots with his own cultural references and vibrant musical imagination.

As a composer, his works range from orchestral scores and chamber pieces to music for film, the theater, modern dance, and electronica. His latest orchestral work, which will be performed in Dallas, was commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

Darwin’s Meditation for The People of Lincoln is a musical setting of a pocket play by Daniel Beaty that explores an imagined conversation between Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln, and the political relationship between England, North America and Haiti. This performance will be in collaboration with a local ensemble of musicians performing with DBR and guests.

Ticket information for the February 25 performance at the Winspear Opera House in the Dallas Arts District is available online.
