theme for this season's concerts is Spice of Life
reference to the familiar saying that variety is the spice of life. This
theme was chosen to reflect not only the variety of music programmed, but also
how music provides the inspiration and enjoyment that can spice up
our daily lives.
year, the Delaware County Symphony features the work of a local
artist on the cover of our annual brochure. For the 2014-2015
concert season, we have selected "Obliviate" by Chris Niedland. This art, with its many colors and shapes, was
inspired by music from a Harry Potter movie. It was chosen to
represent this season's theme because it embodies the variety and intensity of the music
that the DCS will be performing this season.
Chris Niedland is an accomplished self-taught artist, specializing
in colorful, abstract, improvisational paintings in oil, acrylic,
and water color. He has been painting professionally since 1996, and
