The DuPage Symphony Orchestra is a highly accomplished community orchestra, serving DuPage County with the vision of transforming hearts, minds, and communities through music.
Please join us at one of our upcoming DSO concerts!
Classical music offers numerous benefits:
Listening to music provides inspiration, promotes relaxation, sparks creativity, boosts memory, reduces stress, alleviates depression, and helps those with special needs communicate.
Studying music at a young age helps increase vocabulary, builds self-esteem, promotes creativity, and improves physical dexterity.
Performing music teaches self-discipline, teamwork, and emotional expression.
Hearing music in live performance is one of the most thrilling experiences of all: the music sounds vibrant, immediate, and alive; you can literally feel the passion of the players on stage; and you, the listener, become part of a very special musical journey.
Whether you are a music aficionado who wants to know more about our rich and varied repertoire or a brand new listener who wants to understand the very basics of orchestral music, we can assure you that our DSO concerts will be enjoyed by all. Please join us for inspiring performances throughout the year!
We hope you will also consider sharing your time and talents by joining the Friends of the DSO. Volunteer opportunities include assisting with front of house, outreach events, fundraising, or marketing.
The DSO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your support as a patron, subscriber, volunteer, or donor helps:
Inspire people of all ages to develop an appreciation for music.
Provide real-life orchestral experiences for area students.
Create an outlet for talented musicians to share their passion of music with the community.
