Summer 2017

Dear Friend of the Dover Symphony:

We hope you are having a good summer and are looking forward to our 2017-2018 concert season.  As you know, the DSO is primarily supported by your contributions to our patron drive and by ticket sales.  We receive a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts; however, the bulk of our financial support comes from our local community.  We deeply appreciate your contributions and your purchase of tickets to the concerts and we pledge to make effective use of your funds on behalf of the orchestra.

We’ve planned an exciting series of concerts and hope you will be able to join us.  Please note that occasionally selections may need to be changed.
