The Center Mourns The Loss Of Don Winspear

Posted on

The Center is mourning the loss of friend, supporter, patron, Don Winspear. Don passed away last Thursday at 62. Don was a part of the Dallas arts community and the AT&T Performing Arts Center since the very beginning. He served on the Center’s Board of Directors for many years, as well as on the board of The Dallas Opera, a resident company of the Center. Our gorgeous Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House is named after Don’s late parents who helped encourage his love of the arts, so much so that Don and his wife Ellen regularly attended Broadway, dance and opera and were big fans of the many small and emerging groups featured in our Elevator Project, frequently applauding their work from the front row. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ellen, and his family. Don will be deeply missed.
