About

The Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center is an icon of artistic and acoustic excellence.

The Meyerson, as it is known, was created by internationally renowned design team, architect I.M. Pei and acoustician Russell Johnson.

Since its grand opening celebration, the legendary rich sound of the Meyerson’s Eugene McDermott Concert Hall has made it a premier destination for the world’s finest soloists and conductors.

The centerpiece of The Meyerson is the Eugene McDermott Concert Hall, an intimate, acoustically superior performance space with seating for up to 2,062. Created by world-renowned acoustician Russell Johnson, every detail of the concert hall was designed to achieve the highest acoustical quality, with special elements of the design providing the capability of tailoring the acoustical environment to every performance.

“The acoustics of this hall are comparable to the great concert halls of Europe, and of the world. The concert hall itself becomes an instrument of the orchestra, and we adjust to it and fine tune our music-making to the hall week after week.” - Dallas Symphony Orchestra Music Director, Jaap van Zwede
