Remembering Ross Perot (1930-2019)


Ross Perot


All of us at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra deeply mourn the loss of our dear friend and long-time champion, Ross Perot. Ross and Margot Perot have supported the DSO for decades, and they transformed the future of the orchestra by providing the lead gift for the construction of the iconic Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. We are so grateful that they believed in the importance of our orchestra and helped to make its world-class home a reality.  

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Perot family as they grieve the loss of a truly great man. He was a larger-than-life figure, a leader in making Dallas the city it is today, a corporate titan, a patriot and a wonderful husband, father and grandfather.
