Season 21 inaugurated our first collaboration with IBLA

An International Celebration – Afternoon Tea and Concert with Winners of the 2022 IBLA Grand Prize Music Competition

An unforgettable afternoon with eight extraordinary performers making Dallas the first stop on their U.S. tour prior to their debut at Carnegie Hall in New York. Ibla Grand Prize has special ties to BCMS as our beloved Baya Kakouberi and her students, Quinlan Facey and Lauren Li, are all laureates of this international competition held annually in Ragusa Ibla on the island of Sicily.

As a special treat, we brought back our very popular afternoon tea, complete with fine English teas, assorted finger sandwiches, homemade scones with jam and cream, and a selection of delicate pastries.

For a closer look at the Ibla Grand Prize Competition and its musicians, check out this brief documentary video:
