The Dallas Symphony Orchestra Enters the World of NFTs

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has released a three-tiered collection of NFTs on Rarible. The goal is to support the MET Orchestra musicians impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The collection celebrated a concert that took place at the Morton H. Symphony Center in Texas in May 2021 when the orchestra was led by DSO music director Favio Luisi and the performing musicians were from both the DSO and the MET Orchestra. That represented the first time that many non-DSO musicians had had the chance of performing in front of a live audience since the pandemic began in early 2020.

Luisi declared: “It is devastating that these incredible musicians have not had an opportunity to perform together in over a year. Sadly, this is the case for many musicians around the country, and many have been affected so greatly by this reduction of income. I urged the DSO to find a way to gather musicians together to make music in a way we have not heard in more than a year as a symbol of solidarity.”

The main NFT features a video of the entire concert, plus behind-the-scenes footage and a VIP experience at the reunion concert. Bidding will begin at $50,000.

Alex Salnikov, the co-founder and head of product for Rarible, declared:

“The collaboration with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra marks a significant milestone in our journey to take NFTs mainstream and to reach new audiences. This NFT is a true testament to the value NFTs can generate for artists and creators by creating new streams of revenue.”
