Introducing the 2024-2025 Season:
Fantasies, Favorites, and Forgotten Gems

The Delaware County Symphony’s 2024-2025 Symphony Series showcases a diverse array of musical masterpieces, including many beloved orchestral favorites as well as some forgotten gems.

We begin in October with our season opener New Frontiers, which features two masterpieces by female composers Fanny Mendelssohn and Amy Beach. Three internationally recognized soloists, Nina Vieru, Noelle Grand, and Eugene Albulescu join the orchestra for Beethoven’s majestic Triple Concerto. In December, our second concert, Timeless Melodies, features the overture to Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, which is then beautifully contrasted by Mozart’s enchanting Horn Concerto No. 3, featuring Philadelphia Orchestra principal horn, Jennifer Montone. Gliere’s expansive and exhilarating Symphony No. 2 completes this exciting program. The March concert, Eternal Offerings will bring Schubert’s charming Rosamunde Overture, Strauss’s poignant Four Last Songs, with Katherine Whyte, and Dvorak’s powerful Symphony No. 7 to the concert hall. The season concludes in May with The Planets, including a lively overture by Louise Farrenc, a captivating concerto with the DCS Youth Concerto Competition winner, and finally, Holst’s cosmic masterpiece.

Each concert promises to transport our audience through a journey of emotion and musical exploration.
