2017-2018 - 40th Anniversary Season

The Dallas Symphony Chorus launches its 40th Anniversary Season “A Celebration of Singing” in 2017-2018 with a special FREE concert on October 8, 2017 that will feature the music of Bernstein (his Chichester Psalms) and a commissioned world premier work by Jake Runestad. Our always popular and family-friendly Christmas Celebration concerts will again take place in December 2017. We then move into 2018 with a performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection” in February and the Duruflé Requiem in April and will close out the season in May 2018 with the Beethoven Symphony No. 9, under the baton of Maestro Jaap van Zweden as part of the 4th Annual Soluna Festival, and a fitting farewell to the Maestro van Zweden as Music Director. The Chorus will then present a pre-Tour concert on June 3, 2018 in advance of its 10-day tour to Sweden, Estonia and Finland.

We hope you will join us at a concert during our 40th season -

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.”
