"An Evening of Music With Anthony Hopkins & the Dallas Symphony Orchestra – A World Premiere" on Friday night. Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins, CBE (born 31 December 1937) is a Welsh film, stage and television actor. Considered by many to be one of film's greatest living actors, however, The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is presenting a program that will include music he created for the films Slipstream and August, as well as other original compositions and pieces from some of his films written by others. His work as a composer isn't just the product of a successful actor enjoying a new hobby in the way some of his Hollywood counterparts have picked up a paintbrush or sat down at a typewriter. Mr. Hopkins has been "doodling" with music most of his life.
