Fully immersed in a world of art and culture, every day at Museum Tower Dallas is an opportunity for adventure. The finest art, performances, sporting events, gourmet fare and entertainment that the city has to offer await just steps away from our sleek high-rise home. Below, a curation of experiences not to miss this weekend:

Beethoven’s First
Friday, January 23
7:30 p.m.
Meyerson Symphony Center
0.2 Miles from Museum Tower Dallas

Any evening spent in the magnificent Meyerson Symphony Center indulging in the breathtaking sounds of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra is always a phenomenal one. Tonight, DSO Principal French Horn David Cooper takes center stage in Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings. The song cycle, composed at the request of legendary hornist Dennis Brain, features settings of British poets and reflects on the concept of night, from its most peaceful to its most sinister. A stunning performance in its entirety, two "firsts" will complete the concert program - the first Brandenburg Concerto of Bach and Beethoven's debut symphony. A sophisticated and stylish night of classical sound awaits nearby Museum Tower Dallas.
