Christmas music: You can love it or hate it, binge on it or complain about it, but even the grumpiest Grinch can't resist indulging in it a little. If you're one of those bizarrely merry humans who just can't get enough melodic cheer and wants to cram every last jingle into your ears this month, Dallas' classical music organizations have got you covered.
Christmas: The holiday with the most extensive soundtrack
Amidst all the caroling and Nutcrackering, a handful of non-holiday concerts featuring some interesting and even experimental classical music are also available. Here's a rundown of the best festive and not-so-festive classical concerts in Dallas this month:
December 6: ex mus Presents the wulf at DFW
If ignoring capitalization rules makes an event cool, this evening of experimental music will be cool times two. This weekend two lower-cased groups -- the wulf and ex mus -- are collaborating to bring some coastal experimentation to Dallas. Now in its fifth year, Los Angeles based the wulf is described by its founder as both a physical space and a community that provides a place for musicians to have the freedom to experiment and try out the radical and the strange. On December 6, Dallas' experimental music concert series ex mus is hosting the wulf at DFW at CentralTrak Artist Residency and Gallery. By definition, experimentation is open-ended; the only way to find out what it's like is to go see for yourself. For more information and a video chat with the groups' founders, go here.
