Benjamin L. Riemer, a litigation partner with Bell Nunnally & Martin LLP, has been elected to the board of directors for the Dallas Chamber Symphony (DCS). Riemer will serve a three year term, effective through May 2021.
The Dallas Chamber Symphony is a Dallas-based chamber orchestra founded in 2011. Its annual concert series features a diverse range of music, including underrepresented and standard repertory, contemporary music, staged works and pieces with extra-musical elements – such as film, actors, dancers and narrators.
From its home at the Moody Performance Hall in the Dallas Arts District, DCS also provides educational opportunities to audiences and artists, including hosting the annual Dallas International Piano Competition and offering music education courses to area schools.
“Ben’s interest in and commitment to the DCS is a wonderful vote of confidence in the work we do and the art we create and look to foster in the community,” said Richard McKay, conductor, founder and artistic director of the Dallas Chamber Symphony, “We welcome his voice and his leadership.”
“The Dallas Chamber Symphony is one of the area’s premier arts organizations,” said James Skochdopole, managing partner of Bell Nunnally. “Ben’s energy and intellect will no doubt be a fine addition to the organization’s leadership.” In addition, our firm is moving to the Arts District later this summer, and we look forward to joining the DCS and playing our part in the growth of the Arts District.”
