Study Up For 'Think': The Making Of The Meyerson

This month marks the 25th anniversary of the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center's grand opening in the Dallas Arts District. To celebrate, author Laurie Shulman and Art&Seek reporter Jerome Weeks join Think at 1 p.m. to talk about the inception of the project and the construction of the building.

Shulman has written The Meyerson Symphony Center: Building a Dream, a look into the process of creating a “great concert hall for a great city.”

For the milestone birthday, KERA’s Art&Seek team put together an interactive web feature called “Secrets Of The Meyerson” where you can explore 25 years of history through a series of radio stories, timeline, tour, performances and interviews with key figures from that time. Watch a guide to the site below.

Starting September 6, the Dallas Symphony commemorates with a week of events crowned by the DSO’s annual gala on September 13. This year’s affair features renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman and will simulcast at Klyde Warren Park beginning at 8:45 p.m. Check the Art&Seek calendar for more information.

And don’t forget, this Friday, September 5 at 8 p.m., KERA-TV will run a special encore of the documentary Frozen Music: The Making Of A Concert Hall.

Listen to Think, Monday through Thursday, at noon and 9 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM or via online streaming.
