DALLAS, TX (January 26, 2024) – The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announces the second annual Young Professionals Experience (YPX), DSO X Troupe Vertigo. The exclusive event will feature a performance by the DSO and theatrical circus company Troupe Vertigo led by Principal Conductor of Dallas Symphony Presents, Enrico Lopez-Yañez (Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Chair). This fundraising event, hosted by the DSO’s Young Professionals (DSO YP) group, will benefit the DSO’s education programs.

DSO YP is comprised of more than 200 members, making it one of the largest groups of its kind in the Dallas Arts District. These young, professional classical music enthusiasts gather for networking events both inside the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center and beyond, connecting over a shared passion for the arts. In addition, YP members have the opportunity to volunteer with and support the DSO’s education programs throughout the year.

“Our Young Professionals group is a vital part of our efforts to build the next generation of DSO audience members, and we are thrilled to celebrate them with this special night of music and performance,” said the DSO’s Ross Perot President & CEO Kim Noltemy. “Last year, we raised over $70,000 for music education with the sold-out Young Professionals Gala featuring the music of Drake X Tchaikovsky, and we look forward to more success this year with DSO X Troupe Vertigo.”
