  1. I am so pleased with the current direction of the DSO! I am a prime example of how these initiatives can pay off. In the 1960’s, I was able to have 6 months of violin instruction when I was 7 living in the East Texas Child welfare Home in Tyler. It was sponsored but the volunteers of the East Texas Symphony League. I was no good, but at the end of the 6 months, we were invited to play the National Anthem on stage with the East Texas Symphony. Then we listened to the concert. It was Brahms 4th. I can still remember the feeling I had hearing that music. For the first time in my young life, I felt a connection to a world that I was afraid of. I felt I belonged and I felt all human emotions in that music. I became a lover of classical music and after moving to Dallas in 1991, subscribed the next year or so to the DSO. I have kept that dual subscription now for over 25 years, eventually increasing it to the full Classical 16 concert series. It is my greatest pleasure and I know I am but one person who has benefitted from this type outreach. There are many more similar stories and many more to be made. Thanks DSO for this! It is so very important, not only for the recipients but for the future of all arts organizations!
