DCS Returns to Stage for 2021-2022 Season!
The DCS will be hosting a full schedule of concerts this coming season for audiences in the Neumann University Meagher Theatre. Delayed by one year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the orchestra will celebrate its 50th anniversary by presenting soloists and music of special significance to the DCS. The soloists will be two performers familiar to DCS audiences over the years. Concertmaster Nina Vieru will be heard in Tchaikovsky’s ever popular violin concerto, and pianist Arnold Ostroff will return to the stage with Beethoven’s dramatic third piano concerto.
The December concert will be a special performance, beginning with the first orchestral work the DCS performed - Brahms’s Academic Festival Overture – and then proceeding with music performed during each decade of the orchestra’s history. Other Symphony Series concerts will be a “Three B’s” program, a concert featuring Russian music, and a concert highlighting American compositions.

Newly appointed Music Director Sebastian Grand will take the podium to lead the DCS in what promises to be an exciting and memorable season of great music.
