Robert F. Sweeny Chair
The Delaware County Symphony is proud to announce the naming of our Principal Cello Chair in memory of long-time cello player, Robert F. Sweeny. Robert played with the DCS for over 30 years, and his dedication and talent have had a lasting impact on our organization. His family is deeply honored by this recognition, and the entire orchestra is thrilled to be able to pay tribute to such a beloved member. We hope the Robert F. Sweeny Chair will serve as a testament to his contributions to our orchestra, and will be a lasting reminder of his life-long love of the arts.
Meet the Music
The DCS is resuming free informative introductions to the music being performed prior to each Symphony Series concert. Guest speakers from Neumann University and the Delaware County Symphony will present a short talk before each concert so you can more fully appreciate the performance by DCS musicians and guest soloists. Meet the Music takes place in the McNichol Art Gallery of the Life Center at Neumann University from 2:00 to 2:30 PM before the Sunday symphony concert. Dr. Richard Sayers, music professor from Neumann University, hosted the last Meet the Music presentation on December 4.
