New Community Jam Session Planned for Dallas
Last year’s “Meet and Greet + Jam Session” Series held by Local 72-147 will be extended and expanded for 2019. Plans for new events to reach out to the Community are underway. Building upon a series of “lunchtime concerts” in Dallas’ Klyde Warren Park, featuring Local 72-147 Musicians, a new event spotlighting local talent, bringing together the music community and providing a free community concert for the citizens of Dallas is in the works.
Last year, Local 72-147 began this series to bring together members and to reach out to the various areas in our local. In January 2018 we initiated the series with a Jam Session at Winfrey Point on White Rock Lake in Dallas. Collaborating with the Greater Denton Arts Council we reached out to the Denton community and especially to the music students at the University of North Texas last September. And in November we worked with Shipping and Receiving Bar in Fort Worth to host a Jam Session for area musicians.
In addition to new events at Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, we are planning to continue our relationships in Denton and Fort Worth. Stay tuned for more.
