Dallas Symphony to donate proceeds of single-ticket sales from two concerts to Hurricane Harvey relief

Posted on: September 14, 2017

“The Dallas Symphony Orchestra will donate all single-ticket sales for its Thursday and Sunday performances to a relief fund set up to help people in the Houston area affected by Hurricane Harvey,” writes Tommy Cummings in Wednesday’s (9/13) Dallas Morning News. “The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund … was chosen upon recommendation of Houston Symphony Society Board president Janet F. Clark. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Harris County Judge Ed Emmett established the fund to accept tax-deductible flood relief donations. Conductor Jaap van Zweden will be leading the orchestra in performances of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5. ‘The start of our Texas Instruments Classical Series seemed like the right fit—a fresh start and a new beginning as our friends start to rebuild,’ van Zweden said in a news release…. Tickets available at mydso.com, Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.”
