Collin County History Museum | Celebration Senior Magazine | Free Online and Print Magazine for Seniors

The Collin County Historical Society began in 1957 with Roy and Helen Hall who saw a need for preserving local history. They began collecting stories of past events by interviewing people and collecting family papers and photographs. Roy would write up his research in articles submitted to local newspapers. In later years, Helen wrote several books about Collin County pioneer families, schools, churches, communities, and the history of the city of McKinney. By 1975, the collection had outgrown not only their home but also the collecting efforts of other historically minded folks from Plano, Frisco, McKinney, and other communities around the county.

A Enchanted Afternoon w/ Barbra | Celebration Senior Magazine | Online & Print Magazine for Seniors

An Enchanted Afternoon with Barbra: A Tribute to Barbra Streissand

An Enchanted Afternoon with Barbra is an intimate tribute to Barbra Streisand. The iconic voice, the songs, the personality, all lovingly recreated by renowned tribute artist Sharon Owens.

Sharon’s decades-long career began as a Streisand Tribute for the multi-million dollar production show Legends in Concert. Her uncanny resemblance to Streisand in both voice and looks, propelled her career and she was soon headlining in her own show, “Barbra and Frank – The Concert That Never Was”.  Voted Best of Las Vegas in 2008, her award-winning show ran for nearly a decade on the Las Vegas Strip.

As a Streisand tribute artist, Sharon won national competitions on television as well as performing on Access Hollywood and Extra. She's been seen in People magazine and TV Guide as one of the best “impersonators” in the world.

Dallas Symphony Orchestra | Celebration Senior Magazine | Online and Print Magazine for Seniors

Dallas Symphony Orchestra

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra, under the leadership of Music Director Jaap van Zweden, is the largest performing arts organization in the Southwest United States and committed to inspiring the broadest possible audience with distinctive classical programs, inventive pops concerts and innovative multi-media presentations. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra traces its origins back to a concert given by a group of forty musicians in 1900 with conductor Hans Kreissig. German born Kreissig studied composition and conducting with Arthur Sullivan in London and was accompanist to the English cornet player Jules Levy. He left for the States in 1883, as part of a touring opera company and settled in Dallas one year later, where he made a living teaching piano and organ as well as directing church choirs. This was a period of huge growth in the city which profited from being a railroad hub for transportation from East to West. From a small agricultural community, the city grew in numbers and financial standing, bringing with it a more affluent population and an interest in the arts.
