Celebrate David Amado and the
Delaware Symphony all season long!

Your Delaware Symphony Orchestra makes a joyous return in 2022-2023 with our first full season in three years as we celebrate Maestro David Amado’s 20th anniversary season.

Classic Series

We begin our Classics Series with the World Premiere of Jennifer Higdon’s Cold Mountain Suite, based on her award-winning and Grammy®-nominated opera. Next, guest artist Michelle Cann thrills us with a virtuosic performance of Florence Price’s Piano Concerto.

In March, join us for an evening “at the movies” as we tour iconic and beloved Hollywood film scores. Throughout our season, we’ll highlight your favorite works of Rachmaninoff, Dvorák, Tchaikovsky, Strauss, and more. We close our season in grand style – with Beethoven’s 9th Symphony to celebrate Music Director David Amado’s 20th season.

Chamber Series

This season’s Chamber Series continues to honor David’s milestone year with a special performance from the Maestro himself, accompanied by talented friends from the DSO. We also return to the glorious Gold Ballroom of the Hotel DuPont for a glittering December holiday program. In Spring 2023, the DSO and Delaware Shakespeare collaborate to bring you a special production of Stravinsky’s A Soldier’s Tale.

A Message from David Amado

Two decades is a long tenure for a music director! Two main ingredients lead to that sort of successful, happy, and sustained engagement: A deep well of musical potential; and a wonderful relationship between musicians and conductor. I have been so lucky to have benefited from this very circumstance.

Twenty years ago, I began a musical journey whose arc I had not remotely considered—and what a thrill and honor it has been to shepherd the DSO through so much. From COVID to GRAMMY parties, it has been an extraordinary journey. And throughout it, our audience and supporters have cheered us on, and have given us the motivation, and support, to continue.

I am grateful to each of our wonderful musicians, and to each of our equally wonderful audience members, for being right there with us—with me—for these years. This season is a celebration of our relationship—of our twenty years together. Thank you!

This will be one to remember!
