How are we feeling? You’re probably all over the place right now, huh? The semester’s almost over, but the holidays are going to be a little more subdued this year than usual.
That’s alright, though, because there are plenty of fun (and safe!) things for you to get into if you’re staying in Dallas during the break. You’re done with us for the year Dec. 10, so you’re going to need stuff to do until we reconvene next month.
All of the Lights
You don’t even have to get out of your car to look at Christmas lights. Dallas Zoo has you covered, as you can check out lights there through Jan. 3. Aurora is also offering a drive-thru experience called “Area 3” that you can visit through New Year’s Day.
Finally, the AT&T Performing Arts Center is also offering socially distanced entertainment, like the Texas Ballet Theater, Friday and Saturday nights through Dec. 20.
Playing it safe and staying inside this holiday season doesn’t mean you’ll be alone. On Dec. 19, the Women’s Chorus of Dallas is holding a virtual concert for 45 minutes of “Love and Joy.” Even better, admission to the virtual event is free (or you can donate if you want!). The concert will be available to rewatch until Dec. 21.
Astraios Chamber Music is also holding a virtual show on YouTube on Dec. 12, which will be available through New Year’s Eve.
You can also enjoy the Espresso Nutcracker virtually, with the talents of the Dallas Black Dance Academy Pre-Pro students on display Dec. 12.
While you’re in the music mood, check out a trio of Dallas jazz singers when Garry Williams, Andre Wallace and Martha Burks perform at Meyerson Symphony Center on Dec. 22.
Finally, check out pianist Cyrus Chestnut playing all the classics from A Charlie Brown Christmas on Dec. 23.
And, as always, please wear a mask and keep your distance while you’re enjoying your time off.
