Youth Outreach Programs

The DSO's educational outreach programs speak directly to the DSO’s mission of providing inspiration and cultural enrichment through musical excellence. We welcome all area students to take advantage of  these valuable opportunities!

(Click on the program titles below for more information)     

Young Artist Auditions:   A concerto competition for area high school musicians with a $500 first place prize and chance to perform with the DSO.

Preludes & Interludes Student Musician Series: High school music students perform with their chamber groups in the lobby at DSO concerts and receive FREE tickets for themselves and their parents.

Student Intern Program Students earn volunteer hours and hands-on experience assisting the DSO with patron services at concerts & events, running open dress rehearsals (Brownies With Barbara), putting up posters around town and more.

For more information:


Open Dress Rehearsals - Brownies With Barbara : There’s no better way to motivate students than watching the DSO work during their concert dress rehearsals. All are invited to enjoy refreshments in the lobby with Maestra Barbara Schubert, DSO musicians and guest artists. Then, try out a new stringed instrument at StringWorks’ instrument “petting zoo.” FREE to students.
