Chamber Music and Memories is a Beauty and the Beast convention that was held in 2012 in New Dallas, Texas.

About

From the online flyer: "Follow Vincent to Dallas, Texas, for the 22nd Annual U.S. Beauty and the Beast Convention/Family Reunion to be held July 6 – 8, 2012. The Dallas /Fort Worth area offers numerous activities and attractions for Vincent and Catherine to get away from it all. “Big D” also has a lot of attractions for your visit during your stay as well. Just imagine Vincent and Catherine strengthening their bond together while participating in a real-life cattle drive or dining at a fine Mediterranean restaurant surrounded by the beautiful Dallas skyline. We are going to use this venue to disseminate information. Please feel free to use this forum to ask questions, get answers, find a roomie, get links to local information about the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex area, find registration & hotel information, etc. Chamber Music and Memories will focus on fun and friendship and the bonds that bring us back to the “tunnels” year after year after year. After following Vincent to Dallas, you’ll find yourself talking about all the memories you’ve created that will never be forgotten!"
