Symphony aficionados, you’ll want to mark your calendars for this one: the Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) is performing a classical concert at White’s Chapel United Methodist Church on October 22. DSO on the GO is supported by TACA (The Arts Community Alliance) and The Ebby Halliday Companies.

“We are very happy to be returning to Southlake and White’s Chapel,” said Dallas Symphony Orchestra President and CEO Jonathan Martin, in a press release. “We thank APEX Arts League for their partnership, and we appreciate the warm welcome from the community of Southlake.”

“Apex Arts League is looking forward to the return of the DSO to Southlake. Hearing our world-class symphony close to home is truly an honor and a not-to-be-missed event,” said Terri Messing, Chair of APEX Arts League, in a press release.

For this concert, Karina Canellakis and the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will perform a classical program including Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, Mussorgsky’s colorful Pictures at an Exhibition and Mozart’s Overture to The Abduction from the Seraglio. Dallas Symphony Associate Concertmaster Eunice Keem will take center stage in Chausson’s Poème for Violin and Orchestra.

Prior to the concert, Jamie Allen, Director of Education at the Dallas Symphony, will give a pre-concert talk at 6:45 pm in the sanctuary. 

DSO on the GO was launched in 2012 with a classical concert in Allen. In the 2015/16 season, it will feature the full Dallas Symphony Orchestra playing classical and pops concerts in cities and neighborhoods across North Texas. DSO on the GO concerts feature familiar classical pieces and popular light classics, with concerto soloists who are principal musicians from the DSO.

Single tickets are $19 for general admission, $15 for Apex members/seniors and $9 for students. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 214.TIX.4DSO.
