About the Dallas Symphony Orchestra

The prestigious Dallas Symphony Orchestra initially started in 1900 as a concert put on by a group of forty musicians, with Hans Kreissig serving as conductor, who led the group for five seasons and helped to obtain financing for the organization. Since the year 1900, the group began to grow and galvanize more support and popularity. By 1945, the group appointed the conductor and composer Antal Dorati as music director, and the orchestra became fully professional. Dorati helped transform the group into a first-rate orchestra, and helped attract national attention through RCA recordings, more concerts, and national network radio broadcasts of their performances. Although it suspended operations a few times, notably during World War I and World War II, the orchestra has been bringing beautiful music and performances to audiences throughout the years. After Dorati, subsequent music directors have included Georg Sotiand, Eduardo Mata, Andrew Litton, and Jaap van Zweden.

During Eduardo Mata's position as music director and conductor, he further developed the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's success, including recording contracts with RCA and Dorian, performances at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center, a European tour, concerts in Mexico City, and concerts in Singapore. Mata retired in 1993, after having had the longest tenure as music director in the Orchestra's history, and he was thereafter named conductor emeritus due to his amazing contributions.

Mata was succeeded by Andrew Litton, and he too helped to raise the orchestra's national presence. Andrew Litton went on to launch the Dallas Symphony's first television project, the Amazing Music family concert series, had a number of recordings including Mahler's Symphony No. 5, and had several performances at Carnegie Hall, several European tours, and a spot in the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival.

The current music director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra is Jaap van Zweden, who has already proven to be one of the most sought-after conductors. He frequently serves as guest conductor with some of the most prestigious orchestras around the world, including the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Because of his amazing work with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, he was named Musical America Conductor of the Year in 2012. Performances in which he conducts are almost unanimously revered by music critics, and he continues to shape the future of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra's success. With such an amazing and passionate group of leaders behind it, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra carries this passion into its performances, resulting in electrifying and stunning music.
