Seems like everybody is getting their news in before summer hits. And it’s all great news. Just because last year’s Dallas Symphony Orchestra Gala was canceled because of the “P” word, its Co-Chairs Andy Smith and Paul von Wupperfeld and Honorary Co-Chairs Mary and Rich Templeton weren’t giving up on raising funds for the DSO.
The foursome, who all have roots in Texas Instruments, have announced that the black-tie optional, in-person evening of cocktailing, seated dining, concert and after-party will take place on Saturday, September 25, at the Meyerson, of course.
Onstage will be DSO Louise W. and Edmund J. Kahn Music Director Fabio Luisi, who will be conducting his first DSO gala with acclaimed violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter as the soloist.
The after-party will commence at 10 p.m. with Jordan and John Jardine co-chairing.
Todd Fiscus is hard at work dreaming up the decor for what should be the first black-tie gala in ages.
So dust off those tuxedos and make your appointments for hair and makeup for the big night. But don’t forget to lock down your tickets for the night of wining, dining and listening to beautiful music.
