A concert hall to rival the best in the world.
In 1989, planners set the stakes high for the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas. They persevered through two bond elections, a recession and public protests.
To mark the hall’s 25th birthday, KERA has launched a special Art & Seek series called The Secrets of the Meyerson.
KERA’s Jerome Weeks reports the planners wanted a better home for the Dallas Symphony. They got more than that.
See what the public rarely does on our interactive Secrets of the Meyerson website.
Among the highlights of the site:
Take a tour of the Meyerson. Explore a timeline about major events in the Meyerson’s history – and there were many even before it was built.
Learn more about what creates the hall’s unique sound. You can raise the acoustic canopy, open the reverberation chamber doors -- and more.
What does it take to play the Meyerson’s organ? And what does the future hold for the Meyerson and for classical music?
All that and more is on the Secrets of the Meyerson website.
