Individual Giving

Providing operational, artistic and community support

The annual support of our Friends of the DSO funds core programs including the classical and pops series, education and community engagement programs, and the operation of the Meyerson Symphony Center.  The generosity of the annual fund members has contributed to the success of the orchestra and its place in the arts community.  These gifts have enabled us to expand our reach and impact in the Dallas community.
