With the Dallas Symphony Orchestra undergoing some major transitions this year with the arrival of new President/CEO Kim Noltemy, the departure of Music Director Jaap van Zweden and the search for Jaap’s replacement, the Dallas Symphony Association Board of Governors decided to add some heavyweights to its leadership.
It was just announced that art-loving philanthropists Margaret McDermott and Margot Perot will join fellow philanthropist/art lover Nancy Nasher as vice-chairs of the DSA.
According to DSO Board Chair Sanjiv Yajnik, “Mrs. McDermott and Mrs. Perot are transformative leaders in Dallas with decades of experience in supporting the Dallas Symphony. I am proud and humbled that they accepted my invitation to join the board. Their passion for artistic excellence and commitment to raising the profile of the DSO around the world is inspiring. With their and Ms. Nasher’s support, we look forward to establishing the DSO as one of the world’s great cultural institutions.”
