The Dallas Symphony Orchestra League was extremely proud to close the 2021-2022 fiscal year with a monumental gift to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. DSOL President Venise Stuart presented a check to DSO Ross Perot President and CEO Kim Noltemy in the amount of $1,650,000. It is the most significant amount that has been given in a single year from the organization in its 76 year history.
It was the result of each of the member and music sponsor’s participation and gifts of time, talent and treasure.
“The members of the DSOL made everything possible. I thank them for their talents and support,” said Venise. “With a membership of over 1,100, this is how it happens. Coming together and working for the success of the organization to keep our mission and purpose forefront.”
Each of the 2021-2022 events produced a profit over budget allowing the gift to impact even more young lives through the gift of music. Activities ranged from Board retreats, to Meetings, to Fashion Notes to Teas and Young People’s Concerts; From Presentation Ball Debutante parties to Sponsorships and much underwriting; Noteworthy Nights to TASO to Savor the Symphony to AMSOV.
Funds raised will benefit the education and outreach programs of the DSO including Young Strings, Kim Noltemy Young Musicians, and the Cecil and Ida Green Youth Concerts.
