According to Dallas Symphony Orchestra Gala Co-Chairs Barbara and Don Daseke,
On Saturday, September 28, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center will be bustling with the beautiful music and incredible philanthropy of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Gala. This year’s event will feature world-famous violinist Joshua Bell, one of the brightest stars in classical music today.
The DSO is renowned for its performances, but the Gala also benefits the incredible activities the DSO does beyond the stage, including the new Southern Dallas Residency that the orchestra launched this summer. This program provides free instruments and in-depth music instruction to all interested children in Southern Dallas, starting with students in grades 2-5. By supplementing existing in-school, after-school and summer programs with music learning classes, the program will open doors and ignite a love of music and education for children throughout the region.
Performing arts are so important for creating and sustaining a vibrant and growing community. We are delighted to be the chairs of this year’s Dallas Symphony Orchestra Gala and are thrilled to be working with our friends, Kathryn and Craig Hall as honorary chairs. We are also fortunate to have Nancy Bierman as our underwriting chair and Kasie and Axel Ricart as after-party co-chairs to round out our leadership team. We hope you will join us at this one-night-only event and support all that the DSO is doing to excite and engage all the citizens of Dallas.
