Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center

2301 Flora St.
Dallas, TX 75201
Best Of
Besides being an essential piece of the Dallas skyline, this I.M. Pei-designed venue is also world-renowned for its resident Dallas Symphony Orchestra. The incredible acoustics and 4,500-pipe organ must be heard to be believed. If you haven’t been since your fifth-grade class trip, it’s probably worth revisiting. Not into Tchaikovsky? Snag tickets for a night when they’re performing music from Hitchcock films or reviving jazz classics by Duke Ellington.
