Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra

Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra

Sophisticated repertoire, student soloists and sold-out houses have given the Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra (DSO) a growing regional reputation for excellence in performing and programming.

"When I joined the orchestra l realized it was a 'family' experience; it was great to feel like I belonged and was part of the DSO community. The orchestra has a very high standard of music performance and I find that satisfying." —Eleni Mora '18 

The resident orchestra of the Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College, DSO's powerful performances have made it a major hit with area music lovers, who appreciate not having to travel to the city to enjoy a high-quality evening at the symphony. Conducted by Filippo Ciabatti, the DSO is dedicated to the performance of standard works from the symphonic repertoire, while also including a few works off the beaten path.

The DSO rehearses on Mondays 7:30 to 9:30 pm and Thursdays from 7 to 9 pm, and has approximately five sectionals per term, on Sunday afternoons.
