Biblical Art & Music at the Museum

Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

A cold front moved in to our region but Biblical Art was painted in the skies over North Texas! It was a heavenly sight and the perfect evening to enjoy Music in the Museum at the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas sponsored by the University of Dallas, Texas, my alma mater. For more information about the University of Dallas, follow the link or go to 

The performance by the Crowley Chamber Trio consisted of Andrey Ponochevny, pianist who has appeared with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Des Moines Symphony, Rogue Valley Symphony, Illinois Symphony, Irving Symphony, Orchestra der Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele and Belarusian State Symphony, among others.  His concerts have been broadcast on radio stations in Boston, New York, Chicago, Germany, Belarus, Slovenia, Romania, Australia and Denmark including many venues throughout Europe. He holds prestigious awards from around the world. 

Dr. Marie Thais Oliver from Rimouski Quebec, Canada holds a Master of Music and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Cleveland Institute of Music. She is former principal cello of the Cleveland Orchestra, and Richard Aaron. Her undergraduate degree is from the Conservatoire de Musique de Montreal. She is now an adjunct faculty member of the University of Dallas, where she teaches cello, and a freelancer in the Dallas/Fort Worth area where she plays as an extra cellist with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and many other symphonies. 

Kristin Van Cleve is well known throughout the Dallas Metroplex. She is the Director of the Music Department at the University of Dallas where she also directs the UD Chamber Ensembles and teaches violin. She is principal second violin with the Dallas Opera Orchestra and is artistic director and principle violinist of the historical performance ensemble Texas Camerata. Her hometown is Fairbanks, Alaska. She has performed in Boston, Seattle, Washington, D.C., France, Mexico, Bolivia, Southeast Asia and throughout the Southwest United States. She has taught in Taiwan and in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and returns to Paris, France each summer to perform in many places throughout the world.  



An evening with renowned musicians creates a spiritual connection that mingles with the soul. It is moments like these of creative fusion with cello, piano, and violin that magically transcends into art unlike anything on youtube or video. The greatest gift I gave myself was an education at the University of Dallas where graduates and the public are always invited to attend special events. Where  music and the arts combine, the soul breathes easier and there is peace---Patricia Feager

Brenda J. Andrew - It truly was an 'amazing evening.' Professional musicians are very special people. There is an auro of excellence that is present when they come on stage, play their instruments, and take their final bow. The University of Dallas does a great job keeping students, graduates, and the public engaged. I really do appreciate the Staff at UD and hope more students have an opportunity to attend. Out of all the colleges and Universities I attended, the best experience for me, was at the University of Dallas.

Good morning, Patricia... what an amazing photo! And it also sounds like an amazing evening of music. Every year I tell myself I'll get to the Billy Graham Library for their Christmas season... and somehow never manage it. Hopefully, next year.

Nina Hollander, Broker - The sky was so beautiful I had a hard time taking my eyes off the heavenly sky! Billy Graham had a very special connection to Dallas, TX and if I had an opportunity to visit the Billy Graham Library for their Christmas season, I would make a point to visit. I wish I had known when I traveled to Raleigh and toured my of NC. I did get to the Biltmore Estates in Ashville for Christmas but visiting the Billy Graham Library would have been extra special. Also, the last time Billy Graham came to TX was 2002.
