The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) performs from The Concert Truck during the holiday season. From mid-November through mid-December, the DSO and The Concert Truck presents collaborative community concerts across the city, featuring musicians of the DSO and other arts organizations. Concerts are held outdoors with audiences and performers able to maintain a safe distance while enjoying live performances.
The Concert Truck, founded in 2016 by concert pianists Susan Zhang and Nick Luby, is a mobile concert stage that brings classical chamber music directly to communities. The Concert Truck travels all over the United States performing alone and with other musicians to a variety of venues and audiences. While in Dallas, Zhang and Luby perform a repertoire of their own and collaborate with DSO Musicians.
“Our musicians have been wonderful to volunteer to play chamber music around the city. Since May they have done more than 80 appearances in many different locations,” said Kim Noltemy, Ross Perot President & CEO of the Dallas Symphony. “As the weather has gotten cooler, we looked for a way to continue this music-making, and we found The Concert Truck. This will be an incredible method for the DSO to perform outside the Meyerson in a very professional manner. We are delighted to be able to share the stage, literally, with our colleague arts groups in Dallas and take the show on the road to our audiences around the city. We are so thankful to Susan and Nick for the vision and idea to create this innovative mobile stage.”
Each concert is 45-60 minutes long and free to attend. The Concert Truck pop-up concert schedule includes the following with more details to follow.
