According to 2023 CancerBlows! Honorary Co-Chair Diane Brierley,
“In 2015 and 2017, CancerBlows! lit up the Meyerson Symphony Center’s stage with more than 20 trumpet legends gathering together to blow cancer away.
“On Thursday, March 9, CancerBlows! returns to Dallas including 10-time Grammy winner Arturo Sandoval, world-renowned brass quintet Canadian Brass, 15-time Trombonist of the Year Wycliffe Gordon, Hollywood trumpeter (“La La Land,” “The Incredible,” “West Side Story”) Wayne Bergeron and many more.
“We thank the amazing Dallas Symphony Orchestra and UNT’s One O’Clock Lab Band – all gathering again to raise money for cancer research and remember their friend and CancerBlows! founder, Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Principal trumpeter Ryan Anthony, who lost his own battle with multiple myeloma in 2020.
“Hal and I are proud to be serving as honorary chairs having had the honor to know Ryan as he served as the Brierley principal trumpet
“Our wish is simple – to fill the Meyerson Symphony Center once again and support the UT Southwestern Medical Center, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and The Ryan Anthony Foundation.
“We invite everyone to buy a ticket or a VIP Fan Package to enjoy this amazing night of music and hope.
