In September 1985, ground was broken for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s future home: the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. Upon completion, the Meyerson will house the Eugene McDermott Concert Hall as well as restaurants and meeting rooms. Scheduled for a grand opening this September, the Meyerson Center has been designed by architect I.M. Pei and asoustician Russell Johnson. It is interesting to note that early funds raised through the Showhouse project went to the $500,000 pledge by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League, the Junior Group, and The Innovators to pay for the Musicans’ Lounge in the new hall.
