DCS Live! Outreach Concerts

Delivering music to our community through outreach at schools, shelters, hospitals and correctional facilities is a cornerstone of the Dallas Chamber Symphony’s mission. We are grateful to the Texas Commission on the Arts for supporting our summer DCS Live! series at the Bridge Homeless Recovery Center. Programs like these are rewarding and transformative for all, and we’re looking forward to expanding and enhancing them in the future. Learn more >
