What: Vivaldi Patron Circle hosts reception for “Romeo and Juliet”

Where: Meyerson Symphony Center

The 411: Event co-chairs Alex Burton and Christina Geyer welcomed fellow young professionals for cocktails and hors d’oeuvre before the group was seated for a romantic evening of Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo and Juliet.” Making introductions at the pre-concert reception were Jonathan Martin, DSO president and CEO, and Michelle Miller Burns, new DSO vice president of development. Vivaldi Patron Circle, which is in the midst of a year of rebranding, provides social and networking opportunities for arts-minded twenty-, thirty- and fortysomethings who wish to be part of the next audience for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. A yearlong membership includes a series of special events at the Meyerson, as well as offsite and private venues, plus exclusive ticket offers to a variety of concerts. Those interested in joining should contact Maliska Haba at m.haba@dalsym.com or 214-871-4005. Next up for VPC: a behind-the-scenes tour of the Meyerson and performance of “Ann Hampton Callaway Sings Streisand” on Sunday, May 3.
