CHAIRS

Gala Chairs,
Laura Harris-Means & Patrick Means

“Very few things connect people from all walks of life the way music does. Just as important is the impact learning to play an instrument has on our youth. Playing the violin as an adolescent taught me to read music and introduced me to some of the most important and influential composers of all time,” said Patrick Means. “It is an honor to serve as co-chair alongside my wife, Laura Harris-Means for the 2024 Dallas Symphony Orchestra Gala to support their commitment to educational programs and community outreach initiatives.”

Honorary Chairs,
Cassandra and Avery Johnson

Underwriting Co-Chairs,
Nikki & Crayton Webb
Marena & Roger Gault
