Dallas Symphony’s next singer/songwriter event, with Texas-based Sarah Jaffe

Posted on: December 2, 2019

“Denton-based singer-songwriter Sarah Jaffe will perform Feb. 3 at the Meyerson Symphony Center with members of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra,” writes Thor Christensen in last Monday’s (11/25) Dallas Morning News. “ ‘I’m really looking forward to this and so excited to be sharing the stage with my band mates and members of the Dallas Symphony,’ Jaffe said. ‘I’m gonna look at the last 13 years, nine records and … reflect on every single person that shared their time and talent in helping me make those records. Then I’m gonna make a really long set list.’ The concert marks the latest collaboration between the DSO and a prominent non-classical musician from North Texas. Erykah Badu performed with the orchestra in June, and St. Vincent joined the DSO in concert in 2015. Unlike those shows, this one won’t feature the full DSO, although members of the orchestra will join Jaffe and her band during some songs. The singer will feature tunes from her most recent album, SMUT, which came out in October.” Jaffe performed in April 2018 at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas to kick off the DSO’s Soluna International Music and Arts Festival.
