The Delaware County Symphony is a community orchestra established in 1971 that is dedicated to providing outstanding musical experiences for residents of the Delaware County area. Concerts are given at Neumann University's Meagher Theatre in the Thomas A. Bruder, Jr. Life Center located in Aston, Pennsylvania.
In the News
After two seasons of inspirational leadership, Music Director Tim Ribchester has decided to pursue new musical opportunities and relocate to Europe. As a result, the DCS has invited four guest conductors to lead the orchestra in each of the four Symphony Series concerts next season. The conductors, guest soloists, and music to be performed are listed on the Symphony Series page.
The DCS has openings and is seeking expressions of interest from talented violin and viola players. To apply, please send a brief description of your experience to Merri Lee Newby, personnel director.

DCS Hosts a Competition for Artists

The Board of Directors of the Delaware County Symphony (DCS) is pleased to announce an open competition to all regional artists. The symphony is seeking the image of one work of art to be prominently featured on the cover page of the symphony’s upcoming 2015-2016 season brochure, including the cover page of all concert program notes and the symphony’s website. Over 5000 printed color copies of the brochure will be printed in early August and promptly distributed to a wide spectrum of public and private institutions including all libraries, arts organizations, cultural institutions and our patrons throughout Delaware County and beyond.
In the words of DCS President Kristin Bray, “I am always astounded by the creative brilliance of our regional artists. Providing artists with the opportunity to create and submit their work will hopefully be as rewarding to them as I know it will be to our symphony and our patrons.”
Artists throughout our region are invited to submit via e-mail a digital image of their art work. Artists may submit more than one image for consideration. Send your image(s) to, limiting each image to 1 MB in size. Submissions may be manipulated to fit the brochure, and must be useable in both color and grayscale format. One successful image will be selected and the winning artist will be notified on June 10th. No fee is required to enter and no monetary compensation is provided to the artist. The title of our new brochure is Musical Mosaic. The title expresses the essence of the music to be performed. The symphony seeks one artistic image that is consistent with the title and successfully communicates the music of our upcoming 2015-2016 performance season.
