In our work supporting the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, the mission of the Dallas Symphony Administration is to bring the DSO’s high energy, focus and excellence to our efforts behind the scenes.  As an esteemed member of the burgeoning cultural scene in Dallas, the DSA has long attracted some of the most talented, dynamic and smart minds in the area.  

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra is one of America’s major orchestras in the United States. Just as the magnificent music produced by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra is the result of complementary arrangements of diverse instruments, we believe the blending of diverse individuals can produce the same harmonious results. Diversity brings a depth and richness to the organization that would be otherwise unattainable.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package for full-time employees, a business casual work environment, free covered parking at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center and free tickets for select concerts. If you'd like to be a part of a world-class symphony, here are a few of the positions we currently have open.
