Concert Truck brings the music to us
The Concert Truck

Since most of us haven’t been able to attend a Dallas Symphony Orchestra concert at the Meyerson due to quarantine restrictions, the Concert Truck is bringing the music to us.  Concert Truck helps make the holiday season brighter by presenting collaborative community concerts across the city. The concerts feature DSO musicians performing with other arts organizations in outdoor locations. Audiences and performers can maintain a safe distance while enjoying these live performances.

Concert Truck Founders

The Concert Truck, founded in 2016 by concert pianists Susan Zhang and Nick Luby, is a mobile concert stage. The truck has traveled all over the country to bring classical chamber music directly to communities.

“Our musicians have been wonderful to volunteer to play chamber music around the city. Since May they have done more than 80 appearances in many different locations,” said Kim Noltemy, Ross Perot President & CEO of the Dallas Symphony. “As the weather has gotten cooler, we looked for a way to continue this music-making, and we found The Concert Truck. This will be an incredible method for the DSO to perform outside the Meyerson in a very professional manner. We are delighted to be able to share the stage, literally, with our colleague arts groups in Dallas and take the show on the road to our audiences around the city. We are so thankful to Susan and Nick for the vision and idea to create this innovative mobile stage.”
