On behalf of the 2016-17 Executive Board, welcome to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League!  We are excited about our 70th Anniversary as a League! We have a new year filled with wonderful fundraising projects and great opportunities to learn more about music and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
Our Salon Series – will become “A Conversation of Note” with one event in the fall and one in the spring. Each event will be held in a private home and will feature wine, cheese and passed hors d’oeuvres.  We have some fascinating musicians lined up for this series.  Details will be coming soon and we hope you will join us!
Please join us at one of our teas, the Fall Clef Note Tea will be held at the Dallas Country Club on October 12; or one of our fundraising events - the 31stth Annual DSOL Debutante Presentation Ball will be held on February 18, 2017; The Junior Symphony Ball in January 2017; Fashion Notes on November, 16, 2016 – honoring the DSOL Past Presidents and the Savor the Symphony in April 2017. Fashion Notes will highlight fashions for the holidays and be a very special luncheon. Savor the Symphony will be a five-course gourmet dinner with wine pairings at the Adolphus Hotel.
We will also have a very special 70th Anniversary Celebration in the spring. This will be a truly special event!
We also work with thousands of Dallas area elementary students as they attend our Cecil and Ida Green Youth Concert series at the Meyerson.  Volunteering to help with our teas, the Orchestra Appreciation Luncheon, the Encore Luncheon and various Concerto competitions are great ways to meet new friends and reconnect with old friends.
Thank you all for the opportunity to serve as the 2016-2017 President; and as always, thank you for your support of the outreach and education programs of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra! The programs included are DSO on the GO, Community Concerts and Performances, Cecil and Ida Green Youth Concerts, Symphony Yes!, DSO Kids and Young Strings.
