For the past 56 years, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League has partnered with high school sophomores, juniors and seniors from area high schools (with supervision and assistance from their parents) to work together and plan, produce and then attend this unique Dallas tradition. The money raised from this event helps support the DSOL's Education and Community Outreach programs, particularly the Special Students at the Symphony program.
