$105,000 Goal


Whether it’s a first time concert-goer or a longtime subscriber, the Dallas Symphony is an organization accessible to all people: a place for a night with the family or a special date night; a place for students to belong or adults to learn; a place to celebrate or seek comfort. The DSO is a place for the entire North Texas community--all in the name of music.

Musical Excellence

Concerts presented by the DSO offer an experience unlike any other. Set in the iconic Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center – the cornerstone of the Dallas Arts District – the DSO offers the opportunity for people from all walks of life to come together and immerse themselves in an oasis of culture and sound. Every performance by Louise W. & Edmund J. Kahn Music Director Fabio Luisi and the world-class DSO musicians represents the past, present and future of classical and popular music.


Financial resources do not limit music education available to students through the DSO. Rather, the DSO’s programs have removed the barriers to music education and in their place provide access and opportunities to those who would otherwise go without.  Through opportunities like Young Strings and the Kim Noltemy Young Musicians programs, the DSO provides more than musical education experiences: it paves the way for future artists, leaders and world citizens, well-equipped for their future.

With the support of the community, the Dallas Symphony continues to grow and expand to provide more diverse in-person programs, educational initiatives and online activities to strengthen and build the community and ensure that the orchestra’s influence and relevance remain for generations to come.


The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) is one of the world’s most respected orchestras and is central to Dallas’s cultural and social identity as a vibrant international city. Serving more than 240,000 people each season, the DSO continues to perform at the highest level of artistry and excellence on stage at the Meyerson, around the community and in broadcasts that are shared around the world.

The DSO is committed to Dallas. Support of the Dallas Symphony is an investment not only in great music, but also in a great city. Through innovative and diverse programming, the DSO continues to reach new heights of musical and community achievement, drawing international attention and new audiences to Dallas.
