2020 - 2021 Season

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.

Dear Friends,


This season celebrates the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Delaware County Symphony.  To honor this occasion, special concerts and other events were planned. However, with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we, along with so many other performing organizations have needed to cancel or revise our scheduled activities.


Neumann University has cancelled all performances through the end of 2020 and current state guidelines limit indoor gatherings to 25 or fewer people. Given the many uncertainties, the DCS has decided to offer a season of virtual classical music chamber programs which can be seen on our You Tube Channel and Facebook Page. We hope to augment our planned online concerts with special programming and educational content, consistent with our mission to offer outstanding musical experiences to those in the Delaware Valley region. While we can’t do this in person, we hope you will check our website and social media for links to our virtual concerts, program details, and updates throughout our Golden Anniversary Season.


Music is a timeless mortar that binds us and it is the challenge of this moment to adapt and continue to find ways to be in community, sharing music however we can. We are thankful for you, our patrons and subscribers, for your continued support of the Delaware County Symphony. We hope you will join us on our virtual journey this season, and we look forward to that time (hopefully soon!) when we assemble as the full symphony and play to a full house!


With all our good wishes for your health and safety,

Merri Lee Newby, President
