Tips for Guests
If you are a first-time visitor to the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center, you may be unsure what to expect – and what’s expected of you. Here are some tips to help you enjoy a remarkable evening.
What should I wear?
You will notice apparel ranging from business casual to after-five evening. Though you won’t see many people in jeans, wear what is comfortable when dressing for a night at one of Dallas’ premier entertainment venues, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
May I bring my wireless phone or pager?
All electronic and mechanical devices including pagers, cellular phones and wristwatch alarms, must be turned off before entering the hall. Beeping cell phones and pagers can spoil a ceremony.
May I take pictures at the Meyerson Symphony Center?
Personal photographs may be taken only before and after the December Commencement ceremony.
Directions & Parking
Get your Symphony Center bearings before you even get in your car. The Dallas Arts District is undergoing many exciting new construction projects that could possibly affect your drive. Please check the TxDOT website for highway lane closures and other traffic updates before you leave home.

The commencement begins when the procession into the hall begins. Late arriving patrons will be escorted into the hall by an usher during an appropriate pause in the program to the most accessible seat. The seat may be in a different section of the hall from where guests are seated as a group.
Infrared Listening System
The infrared listening device is a complimentary headset for the hearing impaired made available to patrons. Infrared headsets may not be used in conjunction with hearing aids. However, infrared units are available that can be used with a hearing aid equipped with a T-Switch.
Microphones located in the concert hall pick up the signal from the infrared device, which is fed to signal processing units and then to an infrared control transmitter. This transmitter takes the processed audio signal and modulates it into a carrier wave, amplifies it and sends it on to the 10 array emitters located in the concert hall. These emitters convert the subcarrier signal into harmless invisible infrared light, which is radiated throughout the concert hall seating areas where hearing-impaired listeners may wear the infrared headphone receiver to hear the program.
