Art has a community.

The mission of the Arts Council of Fort Worth is to create an environment that promotes, nurtures and supports the arts in our community. The Council develops relationships between artists, organizations and the community at large through its stewardship of the Community Arts Center, administration of the Public Art Program, and development of various educational opportunities for the community. The Council also provides financial support to numerous, eligible non-profit arts organizations through the administration of a comprehensive grant program. Applications are reviewed by qualified volunteer panels and judged on management ability, artistic excellence and community outreach. The Arts Council is supported by the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County, the Texas Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts and numerous individual, corporate and foundation donors. To all of whom we say,

“Thank you.”

OPERA SUPERSTARS Not everyone onstage is a musical marvel. Some are guys- and girls-next-door.

Think all the characters you see performing in an opera have decades of training? Think again. Most operas are chock full of “civilians” who have had no musical training at all. In almost every Fort Worth Opera production (in fact, in almost every opera around the world), there are several — sometimes a dozen or more — cast members who did not study music in school and might never have sung a note in their lives. They’re called supernumeraries, or “supers,” and they are to opera what extras are to Hollywood movies. They play onstage characters without speaking (or singing) lines, usually townspeople or soldiers. They fill up the stage for large crowd scenes, but there are solo roles too: For instance, every production of Puccini’s Turandot requires a buff-and-burly Executioner, and in Madame Butterfly, a super child is always tapped to play the title character’s son. In Fort Worth Opera’s 2011 Julius Caesar, a super played the ghost of the emperor Pompey, who “haunted” several scenes. During the 2011 Fort Worth Opera Festival, Il Trovatore featured 14 adult male and female supers, who served as flagbearers, ladies-in-waiting, torchbearers, guards, and gypsies — and most people played multiple roles since Act I’s soldiers became Act II’s gypsies. And The Mikado featured eight adult supers and one child, who served as ninjas. The adult supers even had stagehand duties, moving set pieces around during

the show (in full view of the audience) and coordinating movements with one another, using the blocking (stage directions) taught by the director. In character. Without speaking. Quite a feat. But for these silent stars, it’s all in a day’s work – or, rather, in a night’s work, since all of them have regular day jobs. Among Fort Worth Opera’s regular supers are a teacher, an engineer, a banker, a writer, and a painter. They vary in age too: Some are college students; others are close to retirement. Several have appeared in Fort Worth Opera shows every season for the last decade. What’s the attraction? Camaraderie is one reason. Being part of operatic magic is another. Supers don’t just show up, though. They have to attend rehearsals, practice blocking, and get fitted for costumes, among other things. For Il Trovatore, several supers had to learn to handle swords for fight scenes. The supers were “fearless,” director David Lefkowich said. “Not only did they have tremendous energy and enthusiasm, but I was also impressed with their willingness to take risks and make bold choices onstage. From sword-fighting to pounding on anvils, this group faced many challenges. Instead of being intimidated, the chorus and supers relished learning the skills needed to make their performances a success.”

Winter 2012

Musically inclined folks also are afforded the opportunity to utilize their skills: by singing in the chorus. Every year, Fort Worth Opera holds open chorus auditions – no prior opera experience is required. Chorus members’ musical backgrounds vary widely: Some choristers are studying music in college, others sing in their church choir, some perform in local musicals, and some have sung with the FWO Chorus for years. Their day jobs are even more varied. One chorister works at a hotel, one is in construction, some teach, some are in the medical industry, one is in the oil and gas industry, and some are full-time parents. And competition can be stiff. The choreography for 2011’s Mikado included a lot of hip-hop dancing, so last year’s auditions tested for footwork in addition to vocal chops. Usually, though, a person’s pipes rule: The 2012 Fort Worth Opera Festival includes Puccini’s Tosca, whose Act I closes out with a glorious, fortissimo, no-holds-barred anthem, so vocal ability is paramount for the Tosca chorus. Tosca will also feature the largest chorus cast: 32 adult chorus members and 14 children’s chorus members (selected from the Texas Boys Choir). Your opera career now probably isn’t as far away as you previously thought.

TCU’s music prep College never sounded so fun – for kids of all ages.

It’s late morning on the TCU campus, and the classroom is crawling with activity. There’s color and movement, as students begin today’s lesson: bouncing and clapping to tuneful “golden oldies” like Little Miss Muffet, Little Jack Horner, and The Cow Jumped Over the Moon. What? This is college? Definitely. The Music Preparatory program in the TCU School of Music has a long history of offering lessons and classes to children and adults in the Fort Worth community. It began with piano lessons in the early 1970s and has expanded to include year-round private instruction in violin, viola, cello, guitar, flute, voice, and composition. In addition to regular Music Prep faculty, teaching staff includes TCU School of Music professors, graduate students, and undergraduate students. Housed in the lower level of Ed Landreth Hall, Music Prep currently enrolls more than 700 youngsters and adults each semester. Nearly half are part of the Early Childhood Music program that originated about 30 years ago and offers Music Together, parent-and-child classes for infants, toddlers, and little ones up to age seven. The point of these sessions is not to teach music to babies but to provide 30 minutes of joyful interaction with a parent or grandparent that just happens to be set on a musical background. “Children want to do what their parents are doing,” said Early Childhood coordinator Jennifer DeSantis, nodding at the cozy circle of families moving to the teacher’s singing and guitar accompaniment. “They’re all having fun with music. By absorbing the tones and rhythms, regular exposure like this gives youngsters a huge head start when it comes to the ability to sing in tune and keep a steady beat.” There also are classes exclusively for introducing the keyboard and piano readiness. These Early Childhood class experiences “feed into taking private lessons later on,” DeSantis said. “Other instruments become easier with these basic skills at hand.” An enthusiastic mom of a two-year-old and seven-year-old in the program agrees. “It really works!” she said. Leanne Kirkham, director of TCU’s Music Preparatory Division, calls it “a very successful, conservatory-like program” that’s available to the Fort Worth community. Sixteen-week sessions are offered each fall and spring semester, with an eight-week program in the summer. Dr. Richard Gipson, director of the TCU School of Music, notes that Music Prep is a win-win arrangement for his division. Families are getting the benefit of instruction from top-level faculty while students have an unparalleled opportunity to practice-teach for their eventual careers in music education. Complete information on class options, schedules, and fees is available online at www.musicprep.tcu.edu or by phone at 817-257-7604.

EVERYBODY DANCE NOW For several years, Arts Fifth Avenue has been the site of dances for homeschooled children.

One of the disadvantages of homeschooling is a lack of socialization. Though no one believes school should be a party, children sharing company with other children in a controlled environment can also lead to many learning opportunities – and lifelong friendships. A few homeschooling parents in Fort Worth understand the importance of socialization. Not only do they involve their children in extracurricular activities around town, the parents also are helping recreate one of the most vital and, mostly to the kids, coolest parts of the elementary and high-school experience: the beloved/dreaded school dance. Several times a year for the past several years, dozens of locally homeschooled children have been gathering for dances at Arts Fifth Avenue, a nonprofit venue and arts-education institution on the Near South Side. “I think it’s just terrific,” said Gracey Tune, A5A founder and director. “They come from all over and make a bunch of new

friends. How many dances do any of us go to anymore? I think it’s a wonderful thing to have kids dancing. That’s the way my parents met. Before TV, everybody went dancing. My mother would dance out a pair of shoes a month.” The homeschooler dances actually sprung from parents’ requests for Tune to teach their kids simple dances. “One parent said to me, ‘I don’t want my kid to be at the White House and have him asked to do a waltz, and he doesn’t know how.’ ” The actual dancing takes place in A5A’s 40-by-40foot main dance room. An adjoining room is set aside for soft drinks and snacks. Some kids and parents decorate the main room and use A5A’s sound and lighting equipment. A DJ spins all of the hits. From the first dance, attracting about 45 kids, the dances have been topping out recently at around 100 kids, from all over (as far away as Greenville) and mostly age 12 or older. The $10per-child admission price goes directly to A5A.

The parent most instrumental in getting the homeschooler dances off the ground is Chris Dillmann, whose 16-year-old daughter, Daisy Dillmann, was homeschooled until this year, when she enrolled as a freshman at Paschal High School. “Our kids don’t have that kind of organized social interaction that is extremely important, meeting new people,” Chris said. “It’s important to have that kind of thing, and it keeps the kids happier with homeschooling.” The dances, she continued, “are just awesome, and it makes me smile every time I see them.” For Daisy, who wants to be an ESL teacher, the dances have been nothing but positive. “I like how it’s very open, very friendly,” she said. “You can walk up to anyone, ‘Hi, my name’s Daisy. What’s your name?’ and you can have a conversation. It doesn’t matter where they’re from or how old they are. It’s really cool…no one sits on the sides of the room. You make friends.”
