The Dallas Symphony Orchestra League (DSOL) will celebrate music and fashion at the 7th annual Fashion Notes Designer Award Luncheon and Style Show presented by Veritex Community Bank on Wednesday, November 4, at the Fairmont Dallas, 1717 N. Akard Street. Tickets are limited in order to adhere to CDC guidelines. 

This year the DSOL celebrates its 75th anniversary. Throughout the last 75 years, the League has donated over 20 million dollars to the Dallas Symphony. This would not have been possible without all the amazing women who have served as Presidents of the League. The past presidents are collectively the recipients of the Fashion Notes Designer Award for their work in designing and guiding the league for 75 years. The event will pay tribute to all the past presidents who have made music education possible for hundreds of thousands of children. 

Mother-daughter duo, Cile McCormick and Claire Catrino will serve as Honorary Chairs. Cile is a devoted supporter of the symphony and a longtime member of DSOL. Her daughter Claire was a debutante, Assembly officer, and now serves on the DSOL Board. 

The morning begins at 11:00 a.m. with a carefully orchestrated agenda respecting social distancing and CDC protocols. The DSOL acknowledges the safety and comfort with temperature taken upon arrival, fewer guests per table, tables spaced more than 6 feet apart, strict CDC protocol followed by hotel staff, and availability of self parking. 

The agenda includes a reception and Mystery Notes gift pull followed by a luncheon, Fashion Notes Designer Award presentation, a live auction, and a performance by some of the DSO Young Strings musicians. The latest fashions from TOOTSIES will be featured, with Nerissa von Helpenstill and Dustin Holcomb of TOOTSIES serving as emcees. 

The event is  chaired by Karen Cox and Anne Ligon is the DSOL President.   

Proceeds from this event benefit the Dallas Symphony Association and its education and community outreach programs. 

“The idea of putting a violin or flute in the hands of a child who might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn to play a musical instrument is heartwarming,” said event chair Karen Cox. “I am humbled to be part of this fun Fashion Notes Luncheon and support the important community outreach programs of the DSO.” 

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, Young Strings and Young Musicians.  

The Luncheon is sponsored by Veritex Community Bank/Darlene Ellison, TOOTSIES, and Fairmont Dallas.  

Cile McCormick is a Dallas native, graduate of Highland Park High School and Southern Methodist University. She is a member of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League, the Dallas Woman’s Club, and The Marianne Scruggs Garden Club. Cile has been involved with the alumnae group for Pi Beta Phi, Council for Life, Kidney Texas, and a past member of Cattle Baron’s committee. Cile is a sustainer for Junior League and involved with the women's auxiliary for Salvation Army. She has been a member of Bible Study Fellowship and All Saints Church for numerous years. She uses her love of reading to tutor underserved children in the Dallas area. 

Claire Catrino serves on the board of The Dallas Symphony Orchestra League as Vice President of Public Relations. Furthermore, she is a past DSOL debutante, and assembly President and Chairman. She now serves on the Ball Committee as Week of the Ball Co-Chair. The education and outreach programs that the DSOL provides to young musicians in Dallas are among the many reasons she loves serving in the League.

She is Horticulture co-chairman and board member for The Junior Group of Marianne Scruggs Garden Club and board member of The Junior Group of Dallas Garden Club.
