“The Meyerson Symphony Center’s weeklong celebration of its 25th anniversary kicked off Saturday morning with a party favorite: Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller,’ ” writes Meredith Shamburger in Saturday’s (9/6) DallasNews.com. “The Mighty Mustang Band from J.J. Pearce High School in Richardson marched—and sometimes danced—from One Arts Plaza down Flora Street blaring the hit song for parents, Meyerson staff and visitors…. ‘Basically we’re just really, really excited to have everyone here,’ said Debi Peña, the vice president of people and facilities at the Meyerson. She helped organize Saturday’s kickoff party and was on hand to greet visitors who had come for the festivities, set 25 years to the day from when the building opened. Additional event are scheduled throughout the week, including concerts from the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra, the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, and the Dallas Symphony Chorus.…  The all-day event also featured performances from organizations with ties to the Meyerson: the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the Turtle Creek Chorale, the Avant Chamber Ballet and the Dallas Winds Saxophone Quartet.” … Peña said the building has had a real impact on the people of Dallas and the people who built it.”
