Savor the Symphony

Last night we kicked off the 2009 Dallas symphony season with a rare and exclusive event inside one of the condos at One Arts Plaza. The stylish and intimate affair was wonderfully catered by 108 Catering, and featured entertainment by guitarist Terry Hankins. Guests sipped wine, mingled, laughed, and chatted about the exciting new season.

The Garden Gate provided floral decorations, and M&M Special Events furnished the tables, plates and glasses. Photographer Jerry McClure captured this moment in time beautifully.

This season the symphony features works by Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Liszt, and performances by Branford Marsailis. Season at a glance.

We look forward to another great year of music.

44 Places to Go in 2009

Thanks primarily to the Dallas Arts District, Dallas made The New York Times list of top places to go in 2009. Ranked 17th out of 44, our city sits among such notable destinations as Brazil, Rome, Cologne, Star Island and Bhutan (quite an impressive group).

The positive change happening in the Dallas Arts District is drawing a lot of national press. People are seeing something in downtown Dallas they never thought possible.

"Everything is bigger in Texas, and the Dallas art district is no exception. Billed as 'the largest urban arts district in the United States,' the 19-block area gets bigger when the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts opens Oct. 12."

We're very excited about the next few years. As things continue to vigorously expand, our neighborhood and our quality of life will be all the better for it.
