On May 21, 1968, a group called the Kent County Community Orchestra presented a concert at Wesley College in Dover, Delaware.  This group was organized through the efforts of several local musicians and a local journalist with a strong interest in the arts.  That fall the group was renamed the Dover Symphony Orchestra.  Don Winslow was the first President of the new orchestra, which was incorporated in 1970.

Today approximately 55 to 70 members participate in one or more of the concerts each season.  Players are drawn from all walks of life, including both professional musicians, music teachers and those who are dedicated amateur performers. While the majority of players come from the Central Delaware area, a significant number also join us from northern and southern Delaware, Maryland's Eastern Shore, and Pennsylvania.

We hope this introduction to the DSO prompts you to join us at our upcoming concerts.  Periodically we conduct surveys of our attendees, so that we may better present music that is pleasing and enjoyed by our audiences, however we welcome your suggestions at any time for future programming.
