Family Funding the Future

Our wonderfully loyal DSO Family of subscribers and donors generously contributed to launch the 2019-2020 Season, and – when it was unexpectedly interrupted by Covid-19, they continued to fuel our optimism and confidence with their financial gifts and heartfelt messages – like these hopeful words of one long-time subscriber: “We must focus on the future that will bring an end to the pandemic and a return to normalcy to include the wonderful DSO concerts.” The DSO is forever grateful for the sustaining support received from June 2019 through August 2021:

Special thanks also to the many generous DSO season subscribers who shared their Children’s Concert tickets with special families in the community.

Please join the DSO in thanking our

2019 Friends of Decatur Sponsors

for their generous support of the free Community Concert.

We regret that the 2020 & 2021 Community Concerts had to be cancelled and look forward to future community gatherings.
