DSO Season Launch Party & Guest Bartending

Wednesday, September 20, 2023 at 6:00 pm

Join fans and friends of the Delaware Symphony Orchestra as we celebrate the start of our 118th season with a guest bartending event in the chic, cozy rooftop deck of Wilmington's hotspot — The Quoin Hotel & Restaurant!
Twelve local "DEL-ebrities" — including some DSO Musicians themselves — will wow you with their bartending skills from 6:00 to 9:00pm.
Patrons can also take a chance in our fabulous prize raffle, discover what's new this season at the DSO, and connect with some of Delaware's most fun people!
Guest bartending tips benefit the DSO, so come sip and support your Delaware Symphony Orchestra's 118th season!

You can also take part in a raffle for some fabulous prizes that include:

  • A one-night stay at the luxurious Quoin Hotel with a $200 gift certificate to The Quoin Restaurant!
