Ensemble Dedicates Holiday Concert to Alex Burton
Christmas Eve will mark the 35th anniversary of the annual Dallas Merry TUBACHRISTMAS concert at Thanks-Giving square. While the ensemble players and holiday carols will certainly spread Christmas cheer, the event will undoubtedly ring different without Oak Cliff resident Alex Burton on the microphone — the Dallas-media icon and longtime master of ceremonies passed away in September. To honor him, this year’s performance will be dedicated to Burton’s memory. The Dec. 24 concert, which is open to the public, will begin at noon in the Thanks-Giving Square courtyard.
