The Dallas Symphony Orchestra today announces the return of The Concert Truck this February and March. Making their second trip to the DFW area, The Concert Truck, in partnership with the DSO, will present collaborative community concerts across the city. Concerts will be held outdoors with audiences and performers able to maintain a safe distance while enjoying live performances.
The Concert Truck, founded in 2016 by concert pianists Susan Zhang and Nick Luby, is a mobile concert stage that brings classical chamber music directly to communities. The Concert Truck travels all over the United States and made their residence in Dallas this past Holiday season. While in Dallas, Zhang and Luby performed repertoire of their own and collaborated with DSO Musicians to socially distanced small crowds throughout Dallas.
“We are excited to welcome Susan and Nick back to Dallas for the next several weeks. The Concert Truck was so well received while they were here during the holidays that we knew we had to bring them back as soon as we could,” said Kim Noltemy, Ross Perot President & CEO of the Dallas Symphony. “While the pandemic isn’t quite over yet we are always looking for new and inventive ways to bring classical music to North Texans and The Concert Truck provides the perfect ‘vehicle’ to reach a wide audience.”
Each concert will be 45-60 minutes long and free to attend. The Concert Truck pop-up concert schedule includes the following with more details to follow.
