2015-16 - Our 38th Season

The Dallas Symphony Chorus has completed 37 seasons and are in the midst of preparing for first concert of season 38! We are excited to begin with the dramatic Berlioz Damnation of Faust in November 12 & 14 with conductor Jacques Lacombe (replacing David Zinman, who has fallen ill) quickly followed a week later by Simone Young leading the DSO and Women of the Chorus in the Holst Planets. Our always popular and family-friendly Christmas Celebration concerts will take place in December. We then begin preparing in January 2016 for what we expect to be stunning performances of the luminous Brahms Schicksalslied and earthy Orff Carmina Burana in April (Nicholas Carter conducting) and then the soulfully sorrowful Mahler Das Klagende Lied under the baton of Maestro Jaap van Zweden in May 2016 as part of the 2nd Annual Soluna Festival to close out the season.

We hope you will join us -

Dallas Symphony Orchestra Announces
Jean D. Wilson Chorus Director Chair

Significant gift will endow the Dallas Symphony Chorus directorship

DALLAS (May 12, 2015) – The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announces the Jean D. Wilson Chorus Director Chair, in recognition of a significant endowment gift by Jean D. Wilson. The Chorus Director’s Chair has been held since 2011 by Joshua Habermann.

“The Dallas Symphony Chorus is a dedicated group of volunteers who work tirelessly to perform at the highest professional level,” Habermann said. “Each singer in the chorus enriches their communities through music, and I am very grateful to Dr. Wilson for this generous endowment gift which serves as wonderful recognition of their talent and dedication.”

Dr. Jean D. Wilson is Professor Emeritus of Internal Medicine at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Dr. Wilson has enjoyed the cultural life of Dallas and performances by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra since he moved to the city to study medicine in 1951.

“I have attended Dallas Symphony performances regularly for 64 years, some 500 performances overall, and there is no question but that my life has been enriched immensely by this experience,” said Dr. Jean D. Wilson. “I feel this gift is a ‘thank you’ for all those beautiful musical moments which continue to mean so much to me. I envy people who sing well and provide so much pleasure to those of us who don’t, and I hope this Endowed Chair will enable Joshua Habermann and the Dallas Symphony Chorus to continue to inspire people like me for years to come.”
