Patrons for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League Savor the Symphony sipped wine and tasted hors d’oeuvres while previewing the live auction items that will be available at the fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 3 at The Ritz-Carlton.  

Savor the Symphony is an elegant evening with a three-course wine-paired dinner, silent and live auctions, and a private performance featuring the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor and Grammy Award Winner, Jeff Tyzik, along with guest performers, Soprano Camille Zamora and dancers from Tango Caliente.  

The Honorary Chairs are Diane and Hal Brierley. The Brierleys are longtime supporters of the DSO and the Dallas community. They have been donors and subscribers to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra since 1986 and Diane has been a member of the DSOL since 1992.

The proceeds from the evening will benefit the Dallas Symphony Association and its education and community outreach programs. Some of the quality outreach programs the League supports are: DSO on the Go, Community Concerts and Performances, Cecil and Ida Green Youth Concerts, Symphony Yes!, DSO Kids and Young Strings. A Sponsorship of the Red Violin Program provides a financial gift to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Young Strings through the Innovators of the DSOL.
