Join the Board of Directors


Music can enliven, unite, and uplift hearts and minds – qualities especially important in stressful and uncertain times. We would like to invite you to partner with us in uplifting our community through the power of music. For more than 65 years, the DuPage Symphony Orchestra – a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization – has worked to inspire our communities through its commitment to musical excellence, education, and outreach. 

We are actively seeking to add community members and business associates to our Board of Directors. The DSO Board of Directors includes leaders from the nonprofit and for-profit sector who are dedicated to the organization’s core mission. Our board members champion the importance of exceptional board leadership, in recognition of the fact that every organization needs a strong and effective board to fully realize its potential. In addition to the standard roles and responsibilities of a board member, our board members are active advocates and ambassadors for the organization, and are fully engaged in identifying and securing the financial resources and partnerships necessary for the DSO to advance its mission.


We also hope to add to our core group of DSO volunteers. While the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in our suspending our 2020-2021 concert schedule at Wentz Concert Hall, we remained committed to bringing a full season of musical activities to our audiences with both virtual and small-group performances that reached thousands of patrons and music lovers worldwide.  Our new, long-range strategic plan also served to increase our educational offerings, enhance donor and sponsor experiences, strengthen our community outreach, and build financial reserves to sustain long-term growth.  These efforts were not possible without the commitment of a strong volunteer network.


As we return to the stage and launch our 68th season, Reflect and Celebrate, the DuPage Symphony Orchestra’s musicians, board of directors, staff, and volunteers have remain united in the desire to continue to seek opportunities to strengthen its legacy. We hope you will join with us in making a meaningful impact on our communities by supporting the efforts of the Illinois Council of Orchestras 2021 Community Orchestra of the Year.  Please contact us at 630.778.1003 or, to discuss how you can get involved today.

Join our Board of Directors.
