During the coronavirus pandemic the board, musicians, and staff of the DSO are united in our desire to work together to seek opportunities to not only keep the orchestra alive but to strengthen its legacy. Over the last few months, it has been inspiring to see how music can bring us together and to observe the healing power of music that unites communities in times of uncertainty.
We sincerely hope that we will be able to return to a schedule of regular performances very soon. In the meantime, please continue to check our website for performance updates and virtual content to help support you in these challenging times.
We have some wonderful plans for the future, and you can be assured that the DSO will emerge stronger than ever. As you reflect on the role music plays in your life, please consider a donation to help keep the music alive.
