Free music concert Monday April 29, 2024, at 7 p.m. at On the Levee 1108 Quaker St. 75207. “An Evening of Music” features local musicians, Augustine “Tino” Jalomo, KJ Gray, Ginny Robinson, KJ Gray, Daniella Salazar, Luis Salazar, and Ethan Worland singing classical, pop, and musical theater selections. The event is free and generously supported by The James and Gayle Halperin Foundation, St. Jude Chapel, Michael Cohen, John Martin, Kathleen Kearney, Susan and Richard Tulli, and On the Levee.

“I miss performing,” says Augustine Jalomo, who currently serves as the City of Dallas Arts Commissioner for District One. “I did a free concert a few years ago and invited some of the musicians who serve at St. Jude Chapel to consider participating. The only caveat was I requested they do music that they have always wanted to do; it did not have to be religious in nature. It was so much fun that I decided, let’s do it again! For this concert, I invited members of the community who have a love and passion for music such as Ian Derrer, Eric Folkerth, Kamica King, Quincy Roberts, and Scott Rudes. I also wanted to make sure we did it during Dallas Arts Month.

Many of the musicians have shared their gifts at St. Jude Chapel, a Catholic chapel located in downtown Dallas on Main Street. There will be solos and duets and a spotlight on the guitar. This evening of music is especially for trying new things and taking risks. I am fortunate to be able to share the stage with such remarkable individuals” concludes Jalomo who also serves as the general manager of St. Jude Chapel.

The event is free, open to the public and for one night only Monday, April 29 at 7 p.m. at On the Levee located at 1108 Quaker Street, 75207. For more information on St. Jude Chapel, visit

Free music concert Tuesday November 15 at 7 p.m. at On the Levee 1108 Quaker St. 75207. “An Evening of Music” features local musicians, Augustine “Tino” Jalomo, Caye-An Muldowney, Ethan Worland, Cesar Anguiano, Billy Lawley, Michael Regalbuto, Lillian Rivas, Ginny Robinson, Scott Rudes, Daniella Salazar, and Luis Salazar singing classical, pop, and musical theater selections. The event is free and generously supported by The Donachie Foundation, GFT Charity and St. Jude Chapel.

“It has been more than ten years since I’ve last given a concert of music,” says Augustine Jalomo, who currently serves as the City of Dallas Arts Commissioner for District One. “It was time. I have met so many wonderfully talented individuals in the last decade that I wanted to invite them to take part in the concert. There will be a series of solos, duets, and a few trios – classical pieces to pop to musical theater. I am also doing a few new songs that I have always wanted to do in public. Now’s the time.

Many of the musicians have shared their gifts at St. Jude Chapel, a Catholic chapel located in downtown Dallas on Main Street. This is also an opportunity for them to share music that is something other than religious. It could be a classical piece they’ve always wanted to try, or they are working on their master’s in music degree and need to perform a certain piece for the experience. This evening of music is especially for that – taking risks, experimenting, and sharing,” concludes Jalomo who also serves as the general manager of St. Jude Chapel.

The event is free, open to the public and for one night only Tuesday, November 15 at 7 p.m. at On the Levee located at 1108 Quaker Street, 75207. For more information on St. Jude Chapel, visit

The award-winning Fort Bend Boys Choir of Texas makes their Dallas Arts District debut as part of their 2021-We Will Sing On! summer performance tour Tuesday, June 8 at the Cathedral Guadalupe located at 2215 Ross Avenue 75201. The concert, to be held in the sanctuary, is free and open to the public. Fort Bend Boys Choir has two additional concerts scheduled in their 2021-We Will Sing On! summer performance tour: Sunday, June 6 at 4:00 p.m. in College Station’s A&M United Methodist Church and Monday, June 7 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Monica Catholic Church in Dallas. Visit or call (281) 240-3800 for more information. Covid-19 safety protocols will be in effect for all concerts.

“We feel so fortunate to be able to tour and sing for the community, especially in the historic Dallas Arts District, after this year of COVID uncertainty,” said William R. Adams, founder and artistic director. “We’ve adapted to wearing masks and social distancing while singing, quite successfully, even performing publicly for several holiday concerts. We have not sung in Dallas since 1984 and we are extremely excited for this opportunity. Our Tour Choirboys are thrilled to perform in Dallas.”

This 39-year-old nonprofit organization has ties to the Dallas area, with some choir alumni living and going to school here. One such alumnus is John Holiday who was a 2020 Top 5 finalist on “The Voice!” He received a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Southern Methodist University and is an accomplished operatic countertenor who has performed with a number of opera companies. He recently performed for the Dallas Opera’s “Welcome Back” Song Series in April 2021 and is scheduled to return to the Dallas Opera in March 2022. “Being a member changed my life exponentially. Not only have I made lifelong friends but the performance tours through the USA and abroad helped prepare me for the professional life I have today,” said Holiday. “Mr. Adams had great faith in me and one of the lessons he taught me as a choirboy is one I still use to this day – No matter whether I am singing to an audience of one or one thousand, I will always give it my all.” John says, “I encourage you to run, not walk, to one of their concerts and you’ll see why your life will be changed too. I am so happy that the Fort Bend Boys Choir of Texas is making their Dallas Arts District debut and bringing some hope and inspiration to the community.”

“When Mr. Adams reached out to me to let me know they were planning this concert series, I was immediately taken back to my time in the choir. I remembered how much I gained from my experience singing and performing with the Tour Choir,” said City of Dallas District One Arts and Culture Advisory Commissioner, Augustine “Tino” Jalomo and SMU Meadows School of the Arts graduate. “Of course, I did not realize it then, but I learned about the discipline it takes to be a performing member in an ensemble and having the members depend on you to know your music, know your part and movement even. I count Mr. Adams among those favorite teachers I had in life and I Iook forward to seeing him conduct and to hearing the choir in the beautiful Cathedral Guadalupe in the Dallas Arts District.” Jalomo was one of the original members of the Fort Bend Boys Choir of Texas and sang for three years.

The 2021-We Will Sing On! Summer performance tour consists of three free concerts – Sunday, June 6 at 4:00 p.m. in College Station’s A&M United Methodist Church 417 University Dr, College Station 77840, Monday, June 7 at 7:00 p.m. at St. Monica Catholic Church at 9933 Midway Rd, Dallas 75220 and Tuesday, June 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the Cathedral Guadalupe in the Dallas Arts District at 2215 Ross Avenue 75201. All concerts are free and Covid-19 safety protocols will be followed.

24HourDallas – the non-profit organization dedicated to creating a safe, vibrant and diverse nighttime culture for businesses, residents and guests – debuts Dallas Digithon, the first 24-hour online streaming variety show November 7 and 8 starting at 12 noon broadcasting from On the Levee, 1108 Quaker Street 75207 and benefiting Dallas artists.

Artists who live in Dallas or primarily work in Dallas are invited to apply and submit their work for consideration in this year’s first

“24HourDallas is committed to raising awareness on how the creative industry has been crippled and affected significantly more disproportionately than other industries during this pandemic. Creative occupations in the performing and fine arts represented a third of wage employment losses according to the Brookings’ study Lost Art,” says Randall White, 24HourDallas founder. “In the same time period, the creative industry nationally lost over 150 billion dollars and 2.7 million jobs. The DFW market lost 2.7 million dollars and nearly 56,000 jobs. We need to use this 24-hour Dallas Digithon to emphasize how dire our situation is. Dallas has some of the finest talent in the world. We need to remind everyone of this and by doing so, raise funds to provide emergency grants directly to the artists.”

“Our goal is to raise a minimum of $25,000, which will allow us to provide funding for 75 to 100 artists who are creative engines of our nighttime economy. Artists and arts organizations from all disciplines are invited to apply to have their work represented in the 24-hour variety Dallas artists can also apply for a relief grant on our website” concludes White.

Charles Haley

The Well Community Auxiliary, which supports The Well Community, a nonprofit organization serving adults dealing with severe mental illnesses, will host its very first benefit WellSpring Celebration Luncheon on Thursday, April 4, at the historical Belo Mansion, 2101 Ross Avenue, Dallas from 12 to 1:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale at $100 and can be purchased online at

The event starts at noon and will feature a riveting conversation with Charles Haley—the Dallas Cowboy legend and Hall of Famer. Haley faced the isolating effects of mental illness during his NFL career with his diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Charles will discuss parts of his journey with veteran and award-winning television sports anchor and broadcast journalist Scott Murray. Guests to the luncheon will learn more from them about mental health, stigma and the role the community has in bringing hope and healing. Over time, Haley has helped others dealing with mental health challenges find common ground and acceptance—two key values The Well Community provides for its members as they regain stability and purpose.

“The thing that I find most intriguing and that took me a long time to understand is that when you have mental illness, you have to take responsibility for it,” says Haley. Haley has done just that and has also become an educator and advocate to help others understand. “When people hear the words ‘mental illness,’ they think there is something seriously, seriously wrong. It’s just a chemical imbalance in the brain.”

At the WellSpring Celebration Luncheon, the Super Bowl champ will also be the first recipient of the new Courage and Advocacy Award. Ann Tabony will receive the Founder’s Award for her years of volunteer service as art teacher at The Well Community.

“We are thrilled to have Charles Haley share his journey with us,” says Vickie Fisk, President of The Well Auxiliary. “His story educates, inspires and encourages all who live with mental health conditions, as well as those of us who want to support them.”

According to Alice Zaccarello, Executive Director of The Well Community, “This Dallas Cowboy Hall of Famer not only had the grit to become a five-time Super Bowl champ but even more remarkable, he has learned to manage bipolar disorder and become a spokesman, an advocate, a champion for mental health. I know his words will help us all become better informed and greatly motivated so that we can help combat stigma and become advocates for mental health care.”
