Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents Hardship Relief Benefit Concert
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will present a new concert for the DSO’s recently created Hardship Fund. The concert will benefit this newly established entity which will help DSO orchestra and staff members facing unforeseen difficulties. Ruth Reinhardt will conduct the DSO in a varied classical program.
The DSO’s Hardship Fund is newly created to enable orchestra and staff members to apply for grants so they can reduce financial stress as their families deal with serious illnesses. The most visible of those are health emergencies where the difference between the funds provided by long-term disability and financial obligations can be substantial.
Also at the concert, the DSO will bestow two titles to important musicians in the organization. Ryan Anthony will receive the title Principal Trumpet Emeritus, and Dwight Shambley will be named Young Strings Founder, Artistic Director Emeritus.
