  • We attended the John Williams Christmas - it was a lot of fun. I loved the conductor - he was really engaging and had a great sense of humour. The venue was perfect - large but feels intimate, really ...  more »
  • We saw a concert on a Sunday afternoon and were totally impressed. This is a world class orchestra. We will attend another concert the next time we are in Dallas.  more »

  • Amazing acoustics. There isn't a bad seat in the house, both aurally and visually. The symphony hall was carefully designed to ensure that even in the Grand Tier, you get great sound. The organ is world class, and so is the orchestra and chorus. The concerts presented are a good mix of traditional favorites and lesser heard works with frequent guest conductors and soloists from around the world. There is an underground parking garage and valet parking during concerts. Bring cash for parking, most recently $15. (Don't park in the many reserved spots--rumor is they will tow. The parking garage is not owned by the symphony, FYI.) There's also a symphony store for souvenirs open during concerts as well as a delicious, somewhat expensive restaurant available before some concerts. You can check with the ticket office if you're interested. Don't forget to check out the Christmas time offerings which are very diverse and include a couple great options for children who want to see Santa, do some crafts, and hear a short concert introducing them to the symphony. The Meyerson is situated in the Arts District.
  • We have seasons tickets for the Dallas Winds! We love it! The concerts make a wonderful date night for us. The music of this world class wind band is marvellously uplifting. The Star Spangled Banner starts off each concert and everyone stands and sings together and it usually ends with a rousing Sousa March! "Have fun! Make friends! Be amazed!"
