We will present a concert featuring wind and percussion instruments in the outdoor garden of an outstanding modern home. For this special occasion a tent will be erected in the home’s garden for the comfort of those attending. Featured performers will be instrumentalists Helen and Drew Lang, presenting a program of flute and percussion music. The event will include remarks by Russell Buchanan, the architect of the residence, refreshments served after the concert, and a self-guided tour of the home. Valet parking provided. Seating is limited.

MOCKINGBIRD Residence is one of the most interesting homes in Dallas. The building is clad in an ultra energy-efficient metal insulated panel system that combines maximum protection with minimum long-term maintenance. Designed for a young family in the stone import and fabrication business, the residence contains a main building in a simple rectilinear shape, designed in plan using five equal squares. Adjacent to the main building is an entry vestibule clad entirely in onyx slab. Completing the composition is a polished black stone wall for privacy. Join us for great modern music in a great modern space!
