Students can register now to be on the Steering Committee


Chris Ferrara and The Common Good will headline the 66th Annual Junior Symphony Ball (JSB) when the band takes over the iconic Gilley's Dallas for a night of music and dancing on January 27, 2024. 

Born and raised in the small town of Sharon, MA, Chris Ferrara is a combination of city boy swagger and country boy soul. He relocated to Music City in 2013 with just a suitcase and a guitar, and he has been making a name for himself ever since. His music draws from an eclectic mix of influences - from Muscle Shoals to Motown and every stop in between - to bring a style that is as familiar as it is new.

A true entertainer known for his soulful voice and high energy performances, Ferrara is backed by his seven piece band, The Common Good. The band’s name  is a direct reflection of Ferrara’s vision for his career: to make the world a better place for the common good. His movement, aptly named "IV - For The Common Good” is being used to share happiness, inspire positivity, and shine a light on the good that goes around. Proceeds from all of his singles have been donated to various charities, and he continues to donate his time and talents to serve his community, both in Nashville and beyond. 

The Junior Symphony Ball is a fundraising event where students from over 35 Dallas area schools come together and celebrate an evening filled with live music, dancing, professionally staffed gaming tables, raffles, prizes, and refreshments. 

To get involved, sophomores, juniors, and seniors  can register to be on the Steering Committee with tickets beginning $395. General Admission tickets will be available at a later date. Click Here register online.


JSB is in its 66th year and is the longest running fundraiser of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League (DSOL), supporting DSO outreach programs such as the Young Strings program and the Young Musicians program.
