DSQ at the DMA

On April 23, 2016, Dallas String Quartet had the privilege of performing at the 51st annual Art Ball in support of the Dallas Museum of Art. With Todd Fiscus of Todd Events at the helm of planning, the event was nothing short of spectacular. 

This year's theme was Art + Architecture. The Dallas String Quartet created three feature performances for the event. The performances included a combination of Sibelius and Kashmir, an exotic version of Sabre Dance and a Texas Violin Duel.

 


Notable Attenders

The Art Ball attracts a high net worth audience, including some of Dallas's most notable philanthropists and the Museum's top patrons and trustees.

Celebrity attenders of this year's Art Ball included Dallas Cowboy's Tony Romo, former N'Sync member Lance Bass and Dallas' mayor, Mike Rawlings.
