On Thursday night, nearly 700 singers gathered in the Meyerson Symphony Center to join the choir for “Dallas Sings/Dallas Strongs.” Among them were local choir members, including homeless from the Dallas Street Choir, as well as lawyers, accountants and teachers.
Jonathan Palant conducted the choir and organized the evening. He hoped bringing the city together in song would help it heal.
“I think that our world has just been topsy-turvy lately,” says Palant. “We’ve seen so much violence and so much hatred and so much bigotry that tonight is all about bringing people together in song.”
