Procrastination isn’t going to pay off for high schoolers who want to party for the good of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League. While the very formal white- and black-tie DSOL’s Debutante Presentation isn’t until Saturday, February 9, at the Meyerson, the 61st Annual Junior Symphony Ball is this Saturday (aka February 2) at Gilley’s.
Needless to say, the JSB ain’t gonna be white tie and tails. Think along the lines of “Texas Tux, cocktail dresses and boots.”
Event Co-Chairs William Blair, Evan Davis, Catherine Dedman, Reese Giddens, Tyler Hamilton, Ashley Isenberg, Jack Loftus, Paxton Scott and Lydia Szuwalski have arranged to have a casino, games, prizes, dancing and refreshments from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by Coin and DJ Calvince.
With more than 1,600 tickets already sold, it’s nearing a fill-to-the roof capacity. So, don’t dawdle. What tickets that are left will only be available online until Thursday, January 31.
Since the guests will be high schoolers, students will need to provide a valid ID and may be required to pass a breathalyzer test. No admittance will be allowed after 9 p.m.
BTW, last year the youth concerts for 14,000 students and the Young Strings Student Programs were made possible thanks to DSOL and the funds provided by the JSB.
