Despite the 90-degree weather, it’s time to think about the holidays. That’s exactly what Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s President/CEO Kim Noltemy is doing. As part of the holiday festivities, the DSO will have a new concert — “C-Suite Christmas” — on Wednesday, December 11, at the Meyerson.
In addition to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, it is going to feature area business executives as part of the ensemble. The lineup of CEO types includes the following:
- Lance Crosby – Chairman & CEO, StackPath
- Lori Lee – CEO; AT&T Latin America & Global Marketing Officer, AT&T Inc.
- Nancy A. Nasher – Owner and President, NorthPark Center
- Nina Vaca – Chairman & CEO, Pinnacle Group
- Geoffroy van Raemdonck – Chief Executive Officer, Neiman Marcus Group
And what will their roles be? No one is talking yet. But just imagine how fun it would be if Geoffroy was at the conductor’s platform conducting, while Nancy read “The Night Before Christmas”? Who knows? Perhaps these business execs have hidden musical talents that will be revealed on that night.
DSO Board of Governors Chair Sanjiv Yajnik said, “I am excited to share the world-class Meyerson stage alongside these exceptional business leaders, and look forward to ringing in the holiday season with our friends and families at this memorable event,”
The concert is all a part of a corporate fundraising effort that will support the DSO’s education and community engagement programs. According to C-Suite Christmas Chair/PNC Bank Corporate Banking Managing Director Amy Carenza, “A C-Suite Christmas will seamlessly showcase the excellence found in our business and artistic communities, and we are incredibly grateful for our inaugural class of talent to kick-off this annual tradition in North Texas.”
