High quality musicians, good director, and nice programs year-round. Best ones are concerts that feature solo musicians. These might include a piano or violin concerto who showcase virtuosity while the DSO accompanies the soloist. Soloists are usually international stars, so it's an honor to attend one of their performances. Tickets can range from about $15 (sitting on the benches of choir) to $120 (box seats).

If the only classical music you've ever heard was on the radio or on tv, you really need to experience it live. Give it a chance for once. Classical music is really meant to be listened in a live setting because acoustics mean everything.

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is one of the most renowned orchestras in the world, with musicians originating from all areas of the world. Their star violinist, who played a great deal of memorized solo-pieces throughout as well as the rather eccentric conductor formerly lived in the Netherlands.

Symphony Hall has a fantastic eatery called the Allegro. (an Italian word that, in the musical world, means to play a section of music at a moderate-to-slow tempo) The Symphonies are very lengthy, lasting up to 3 1/2 hours with 1 inter-mission. The symphony I experienced had great historical relevance, capturing Leningrad, Germany during WWII.

The orchestra itself has a wide range of instruments, violins being the dominating instruments at about 30 performers. There were 2 harpists during the 2nd half, and also had many of the standard band instruments, these being: French Horns, (the instrument I play currently) Trumpets, Trombones, Tubas, Euphoniums, Saxophones, Clarinets, Flutes, Piccolos, Violas and Cellos.

This event, while being quite expensive, is a very, very worthy experience for lovers of music or those participating in some musical involvement (band, orchestra etc.) This is an event worth participating in.
