The Limelight: Elan Circle

Elan Circle, an auxiliary organization of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League, promotes the interests of the Dallas Symphony Association through education, fundraising activities and service.

By definition, "Elan": (1. Enthusiastic vigor and liveliness 2. Distinctive style or flair), which meaning can be seen through all of their endeavors. The members of Elan Circle provide service to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) with a variety of social and educational programs, community service, as well as direct contributions of their time with the DSO Season Ticket Renewal Campaign, Symphony YES, Youth Concerts and so much more.

The Elan Circle provides an enjoyable, stylish, social environment that allows members opportunities for musical enrichment, meeting new friends, connecting with old friends, and participating in a variety of engaging activities.

Their annual Savor the Symphony fundraiser is an event not to be missed. Founded in 2000, Savor the Symphony is a black tie event that brings together business and community leaders with the goal of raising money for the educational and outreach programs of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Over the past decade, Savor the Symphony has raised more than $950,000. Without support, many children in our community would never be able to experience the joy of symphonic music. The cornerstone of the event is an exceptional five-course, wine-paired dinner, followed by raffle, cork pull, luxury live and silent auctions as well as fabulous entertainment. Definitely a must on your social calendar!

The Elan Circle also hosts Fireside Chats which introduce guest artists and conductors of the DSO. Hosted at some of the most gorgeous homes in Dallas, Fireside Chats make for a fun evening among friends, along with the chance to listen and meet prominent individuals of the DSO. What is not to benefit from this great organization?
