The DSO provides real-life orchestral experiences for area students. All outreach programs are suspended during the 2020-21 season due to COVID-19. We will resume these programs when we are able to perform again.
Preludes & Interludes – The Preludes & Interludes Student Musician Series provides a valuable opportunity for chamber ensembles, made up of high school musicians in DuPage County, to perform at DuPage Symphony Orchestra concerts throughout the season.
These short chamber performances take place in the lobby during intermission or prior to various DSO concerts.
Students participating in the Preludes & Interludes program will receive one complimentary ticket to the performance
as well as one complimentary ticket for a guest; additional tickets may be purchased in advance through the Managing
Director at KChmiel@DuPageSymphony.org or 630-778-1003. Extra complimentary tickets may be available for music directors or instructors who teach the students.
