Your best bet tonight is by far and away Kenneth Goldsmith at the Reading Room.
The prolific and celebrated poet (he’s the Museum of Modern Art‘s first-ever poet laureate, which is interesting) will do a reading from Seven American Deaths and Disasters, prose poems that recount iconic deaths in American history. It would stand to reason JFK is among these tragedies. Doors are 6 p.m., and the reading begins at 7 p.m.
At SMU’s Caruth Auditorium, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s brass quintet performs with SMU’s Meadows school ensemble-in-residence, the Brazen Brass 5. The DSO’s quintet will perform Previn’s Three Outings for Brass, Holst’s Song Without Words and McKee’s Ride of Fire. After intermission, Brazen Brass 5 joins in for Bach’s Sweet Suite, Tielman Susato’s Renaissance Dances, and maybe a few extras.
