This is the Official Announcement for the BIG CHRISTMAS SHOW, the December Edition of Trinity Arts - LIVE!

It's a 2fer TUESDAY... Don't Get Confused... Get Happy!
PASS this announcement on to your friends and families because it is safe to say it will be IMPOSSIBLE for you to experience ANYTHING like this for at least a year!  ...maybe ever. Seriously.  Let me explain.

Trinity Arts - LIVE!  AND  Unsilent Night Dallas are occurring this coming Tuesday night in the SAME PLACE and at the SAME TIME.  It's insane, yes, I know.

This announcement is for Trinity Arts - LIVE!.  OK?  The Unsilent Night Dallas announcement will come in a day or two but until then you can find it in the media (just Google us) and at  and our Facebook account (UnsilentNight Dallas).

You and your friends are ESPECIALLY INVITED to our December, BIG CHRISTMAS SHOW, an extended, celebratory version of Trinity Arts - LIVE!, a FREE monthly production of The TreeHouse  benefiting The Trinity Arts Conference
Trinity Arts - LIVE!
A fun evening of excellent music, top notch poetry and friends.

REVIEW: Last month's show was so, so GOOD. I am humbled by the incredibly large number of gifted poets and performers who have graced our stages in recent months.  The list is quite long already! THANK YOU for showing up to support these excellent artists.  And a huge THANK YOU to last month's artists: Richard & Vicki Blackwell of FAINT IMAGE, Uryon Adams, Cory Denson, Author Linda Jones and our Feature Performer Matthew Bridgeman!

NEXT TUESDAY, Dec. 22Because we are anticipating SO MANY wonderful people wanting to come out and experience this and Unsilent Night Dallas we are having a BIG, extended show.  Yahoo!
In our crazy back-to-back fashion you can expect to actually see our Host, Justin Nygren introducing all of these performers:
  • Faint Image (Richard & Vicki Blackwell, with Mimo Morreale and Mark Phillips) playing in varying capacities throughout the show

  • Mimo Morreale Singer/songwriter and Cellist, Cynthia Hart
  • Will Richey, Spoken Word artist

  • Breaking Light: Captivating electro-morphing guitar looping like you have never heard

  • Haylee & Amanda (Yea! A surprising back-in-Dallas appearance!)

  • Gary Brown, Singer/songwriter/poet

  • JUST when you thought it could not get any better, you won't believe this:  HAL SAMPLES, world class art photographer will be our FEATURED VISUAL ARTIST and a rare, extensive slideshow exhibiting his work will be continuously displayed on the wall next to the Main Stage via our Electronic Art Gallery ALL NIGHT LONG!  (Word has it "those attending" may be in for a surprise offer from Hal, as well.)

Why Do WE Do This?
This is a wonderful, fun-filled, monthly fund raising event for the Trinity Arts Conference ( ).  As stated, there is no admission charge.  If you desire, please feel free to  just drop whatever you may want into the box for this really, really fantastic organization (a tip jar for the house band will also be available).  Come out and support these artists who are volunteering their time and talents for this most excellent cause (that means their only pay is your presence and appreciation and a blessing none of us can touch). 

You being there... makes our night!

*PLEASE pass this announcement on to: Everyone!
