The Gala Treatment
You may not be a millionaire, but you can play one this weekend. The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is celebrating 20 Years at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, hosted by Honorary Gala Artist Van Cliburn, and everyone who's anyone will be there this Saturday for what could be one of Dallas society’s biggest nights. The full black-tie experience includes cocktails, dinner by celebrity chef Kent Rathbun, a concert by Marvin Hamlisch and Johnny Mathis with the DSO, and an after-party. But it's gonna set you back a cool $1,000. Now, if you don't have that much cash lying around, you can rub elbows with the rich when you attend the concert and after-party only for a mere $150 (you can just go to Abacus another night). The concert starts at 8:15 p.m., with the Gala after-party to follow, at the Meyerson Symphony Center, 2301 Flora St. Concert tickets (no gala, no party) are $35 to $75.
