2022 - 2023 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, Pennsylvania area.
Fifty Years a Classic!
May 1 marked the conclusion of the 2021-2022 concert season for the Delaware County Symphony. And what a season it was! The full orchestra returned to the stage for the first time since March of 2020 due to the hiatus caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we celebrated fifty years of presenting great music for Delaware County and surrounding areas, and this was the first full season for our new music director Sebastian Grand. We are so grateful to our musicians and faithful audience members who returned to Neumann University this season to share in the splendor of live musical performance.
We plan to offer more great music next season which will include favorites such as Elgar’s Enigma Variations, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Dukas, Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini, Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun by Debussy, and Copland’s Appalachian Spring. We are thrilled to be back on stage to perform for live audiences again, and hope to see you all at our symphony and chamber concerts next season.
