The Dallas Chamber Symphony season concludes with selections from the second annual Sight of Sound International Film Competition. Sponsored in part by the Video Association of Dallas, the concert will feature entries from filmmakers across the globe who have created new visual art for pairing with classical music. This year will explore music by Grieg, Pärt, Vivaldi, Elgar, Schubert and others.
This year's Sight of Sound attracted numerous, high-quality entries from some of the United States’ most respected film schools, including UCLA, CalArts, USC and Chapman University, among many others. The competition has also attracted both international and local entries from student and professional filmmakers. Finalists are eligible to receive a $500 Audience Favorite Award (selected by audience members via text), as well as a $500 Best Picture Award, to be determined by the competition’s professional jury panel.
Sight of Sound will to present two exemplary entries submitted by North Texas artists. Local filmmaker Courtney Ware will have her film Blue Disquietude premiered to "A Specific Time," written by Dallas-based composer Margaret Barrett. Dallas’ Booker T. Washington High School is also collaborating with the DCS on Sight of Sound, with the Chamber Symphony debuting junior Montana Brock’s original film, The Last Spring.
