Dallas Symphony ends 2014-15 season on a high note

Posted on: June 12, 2015

“The Dallas Symphony Orchestra has ended its 2014-2015 season with a balanced $36 million budget,” writes Scott Cantrell in Wednesday’s (6/10) Dallas Morning News. “A welcome change from the $3.6 million deficit in 2013-2014, the success is attributed to significantly increased contributions and commitment, as well as growth in earned income. In addition to $7 million in annual fund contributions, the DSO received more than $25 million in contributions and commitments to a long-term initiative to provide a sustainable future. The 2014-2015 season culminated with Soluna, the orchestra’s first international festival of music and art, held during three weeks in May.” A separate article Tuesday (6/9) at Forbes.com covers the recently concluded inaugural Soluna festival, whose theme was “Destination: America.”
