For the first time in its history, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will simulcast a concert live and for free. On September 13, the DSO's AT&T Gala will stream from the Meyerson Symphony Center to Klyde Warren Park.
The concert, directed by Jaap van Zweden, includes a solo by internationally acclaimed violinist Itzhak Perlman. In a statement, gala co-chair Jan Miller described the opportunity to share the DSO gala with all of Dallas as "a thrill."
"Itzhak Perlman is an icon. Jaap van Zweden is a superstar," Miller said. "Together with our Dallas Symphony they will present a memorable evening of beautiful music, and this simulcast will share that experience with music-lovers beyond the Meyerson."
The concert begins at 8:45 pm and will be followed by a fireworks display in celebration of the Meyerson's 25th anniversary. A week of special events kicks off September 6; other celebrations are planned throughout the 2014-2015 concert season.
The free concert at Klyde Warren Park is being presented by Bank of America, Merrill Lynch Wealth Management and U.S. Trust.
