The Dallas Symphony Orchestra League will introduce the 2023-2024 debutantes during Announcement Weekend festivities held May 18 – May 20, 2023. The weekend marks the official start of a season of events culminating with the 38th Presentation Ball, which will be held February 10, 2024. 

The weekend begins with the announcement party at The Dallas Country Club on Thursday evening, May 18. Stanley Korshak will host a couture gown show at the Bridal Salon on Saturday morning, May 20, and Patti Flowers Design Studio will present custom gowns during the afternoon.

The Presentation Ball Chair is Kristin Cordiak and the DSOL President is Nancy Labadie. Kristin and Nancy know well what to expect during the debutante season. Kristin’s daughter Bronwyn made her debut in 2018 and her son Newt was an Honor Guard this year. Nancy’s son Will was an Honor Guard and daughter-in-law Lizzy was a Debutante in 2013. 

The Presentation Ball, which was first held in 1987, is the largest fundraiser for the DSOL. Over $13 million has been raised for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra through the annual event, which was created with the vision of long-time League member Tincy Miller, who chaired the first ball.  

Founded in 1946, the DSOL’s mission is to support the Dallas Symphony Orchestra through service, education and fundraising activities. Since 1998 the League has contributed over $22 million in support of the Dallas Symphony Association’s Community Outreach and Education programs, which help bring the wonder of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to thousands of youths and adults in the Dallas Metroplex.
