2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the devastating 9/11 attacks.  The US lost so much and shed tears for so many, yet that day showed the courage and selflessness of first responders, police, firefighters and ordinary Americans. 

The DSO joins the nation in reflecting on that day two decades ago that changed our lives forever.  We will take time to remember those we lost and celebrate the resiliency of our country and the American spirit. 

Proceeds from the event will benefit Carry the Load, a Dallas-based non-profit organization that provides an active way to connect Americans to the sacrifices made daily by our military, veterans, first responders and their families.

We hope you will join us for this one-hour concert of stirring American music as the Meyerson illuminates for the Tribute of Lights.
