Reliant lights the stage at Strauss Square on Thursday, November 5 signaling the return of concert events at the AT&T Performing Arts Center with opening act, Daniel Gonzales and featuring Dallas favorite, Jake Dexter & the Main Street Sound. Hosted by the Center’s Auxiliary Board, this benefit concert supports the relief fund created for the Center while its stages have been dark and its doors have been closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Center is pleased to recognize Reliant as the presenting sponsor for their annual involvement and support of the Raise the Curtain relief fund.

Watch The Invite From The Center’s Auxiliary Board

“The Center has been a catalyst for reigniting the arts during this devastating crisis,” said Noa Dowl, Chair of the Auxiliary Board. “Their good work this Fall in supporting local arts groups with a space to perform and a team to manage the events, has laid the ground work for a safe return to live performance. Reliant Lights Strauss Square is the Auxiliary Board’s way of furthering its mission while calling everyone back to the arts campus. We can’t wait to celebrate safely together under the stars with some of the amazing live music we’ve all been missing.”

This exciting new production is in our outdoor venue with reduced-capacity, socially-distanced seating so everyone can safely stretch out on the lawn and enjoy this performance under the stars in the Dallas Arts District.

We will be utilizing our new COVID-19 safety procedures to help protect our patrons, artists and staff while allowing everyone to once again enjoy a live, in-person performance experience! Protective face masks are required for patrons. Please review the COVID-19 Safety procedures here and the venue policies here.

Your support of the AT&T Performing Arts Center is greatly appreciated, especially at this critical time. Join us for this great event and consider a donation to the Raise the Curtain Fund.
