Harry Potter™ At Meyerson Symphony Center

Meanwhile, back at the Meyerson, a new chamber music series curated by DSO Principal Musicians starts at 7 p.m. Nov. 19. The audience is seated on stage with the musicians. They also sit in the choral terrace of the Eugene McDermott Concert Hall at the Meyerson. Musicians perform in the middle of the state, the same format as that used in the popular “A Musician’s View” concert.
Kim Noltemy, Ross Perot President & CEO of Dallas Symphony Orchestra, said, “The DSO Musicians came to me about forming a new chamber music series. The annual A Musician’s View concert gave us the perfect blueprint for these performances. Being able to hear this music in an intimate setting is a real treat. These concerts will feel like you are in the middle of the performance.”
The DSO Musicians Chamber Music Series continues into the 2020/21 season. Purchase tickets for this concert ($40) at mydso.com or by calling 214-TIX-4DSO.
