Helping Our Community During Covid-19 Pandemic

During this time of shut-down, many of you have asked how we can help in our community. Towards that end, Dallas Symphony Orchestra President & CEO Kim Noltemy has reached out to the DSO musicians, DSOL, and other constituents to share a need that the Young Musicians (see below*) families are experiencing currently. Young Musicians and Young Strings instruction has continued online to many of the students, but many of the students’ families are suffering with job loss and reduced school lunch programs. The Symphony has asked for help in two ways:

1)      Food and Supply Donations

The DSO is putting together care boxes for families. Suggested items: fresh fruits or vegetables, pasta, rice, canned goods, baking mixes, eggs, paper goods, disinfectant and cleaning products. Also needed – used or new tablet devices that the children can use for online music or school lessons. We will pick up donations from your porch.
Contact Anne Ligon
2)      Financial Gifts
Thank you for your concern as you consider this need in our community at such a critical time.
*The Dallas Symphony Orchestra Young Musicians program provides free instruments and lessons to students in Southern Dallas through after-school and summer programming. All Young Musicians students participate in classes on their chosen instrument, as well as ensembles, drum circle and choir, with a progressive curriculum that includes social and emotional learning.
