Dear Friends,

 

It is my great pleasure to introduce the Delaware County Symphony’s 2022-23 season. Titled ‘Mythology and Majesty’, our symphonic series encompasses remarkable orchestral works that are mainstays of the repertoire, alongside some lesser-known but equally inspiring pieces. We very much look forward to sharing the joy of symphonic music with our community. 

 

This season we welcome three outstanding soloists, who will perform works by Ravel, Rachmaninoff and Lalo. Their virtuosity and musicianship is sure to enchant and enthrall, and we are so grateful to have the opportunity to hear them. Works such as Elgar’s Enigma Variations, Copland’s Appalachian Spring, Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and Sibelius’ Symphony no. 5 are also highlights of the coming year. 

 

We are excited to see you all at a concert in the near future. Please book ahead or subscribe to the season. There are some truly magical musical experiences ahead this season, and we can’t wait to share them with you.
