The Basically Beethoven Festival concerts began in 1981 and have served over 75,000 with free music in the last 35 years. This popular free concert series features professional classical musicians from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, The Dallas Opera Orchestra, the Fort Worth Symphony, and area university faculties performing inspiring chamber music in the stunningly designed City Performance Hall, located downtown in the Dallas Arts District. These concerts reinforce FACP’s focus of bringing professional classical music to those who would not traditionally be able to attain access to such music, particularly senior citizens and families with children. FACP’s chamber music concert series have a tradition of attracting standing-room-only audiences.
