Booker T Washington's FLYINGHORSE Performing Arts Fest

FLYINGHORSE 2011 Performing Arts Festival, presented by the Booker T. Washington High School Advisory Board, will rock the Dallas Arts District on Friday, March 25. Guests will explore the school and discover its creative revolutionaries, while enjoying a musical celebration that will rival any artistic event this season.
“There’s no other place like Booker T. Washington High School when it comes to nurturing gifts. Not only did some of my fondest musical memories take place there, but the school provided me with the best opportunity a young student in the arts world could ask for,” said Booker T. Washington alumna Erykah Badu. “At the time, I did not realize the magnitude of the experience and education I was receiving, so it is my honor to give my support back to the place that created the avenue for me to reach my goals.”
The special night will begin at 6 p.m. with BookLook, an entertaining tour of the school’s campus, along with student performances throughout, which will give patrons an inside look into the students’ work. GRAMMY® award-winning alumna Erykah Badu will join forces with some of Booker T.’s talented and gifted students in the Montgomery Arts Theatre at 7 p.m. for an unparalleled, first-ever performance in the theater. Guests will then venture Second-Line-style across the street from Booker T. Washington to One Arts Plaza for an exciting evening of entertainment and dancing with performances by The NOLA Hot Damn! Second-Line, Stage Revue and Dance starring the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Charmaine Neville, Kermit Ruffins and The Barbeque Swingers, and Walter “Wolfman” Washington and The Roadmasters.
