Ask and ye shall receive. Back in August, The Dallas Morning News' classical music critic Scott Cantrell lamented how little the Meyerson's resident symphony orchestra employs its magnificent Fisk organ, an expensive gift from the Lay family more than 20 years ago. (Cantrell made a similar complaint in May of 2012, calling the 4, 535-pipe organ's underuse a "scandal.") This Christmas concert shakes the dust off with longtime principal organist Mary Preston at the keys. Don't miss your chance to hear Preston accompany the DSO's brass section in a performance of popular carols. It's not quite a solution to the problem, but it's something.
