The DWS makes its home in one of the world's greatest concert halls, Dallas' Morton H. Meyerson Concert Center, where it performs an annual concert subscription series. Since its debut in 1985, the Dallas Wind Symphony has entertained more than a million people both at home and increasingly, on tour. Among those entertained was Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, for whom the DWS gave a command performance in March 1991.

Globetrotters!

Opening night is a whirlwind tour of the globe led by some well-traveled composers. Our trip begins in eastern Europe with Friedmann's Slavonic Rhapsody, and makes a few stops in France with works by Poulenc and Faure. Then, after a layover in the good ol' USA with Ron Nelson, we close with that international fave: Mossurgsky's sensational Pictures at an Exhibition. It's a treat not to be missed.

Carl Friedmann — Slavonic Rhapsody
Francis Poulenc — March Militaire Francaise
Gabriel Faure — Chant Funeraire
Modeste Mussorgsky — Pictures at an Exhibition
