Founded in 1946, the mission of the DSOL is to support the Dallas Symphony Orchestra through service, education, and fundraising activities. Since 1998, the League has contributed over $16 million in support of the Dallas Symphony Association's community outreach and education programs, which help bring the wonder of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to thousands of youths and adults in the Dallas area.
The DSOL has ways to get involved, including helping with three major fundraisers, education meetings, youth concerts, youth competitions, orchestra appreciation, intimate concerts in private homes, and more. Signing up for a committee will open opportunities to help raise awareness and support for the gift of music to the community by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
The Presentation Ball, which was first held in 1987, is the largest fundraiser for the DSOL. Over $11 million has been raised for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra through the annual event, which was created with the vision of long-time League member Tincy Miller, who chaired the first ball.
Memberships start at $70.
