Welcome to the Deep River Symphony Orchestra

Welcome to the website of the Deep River Symphony Orchestra. We are very excited about our 2019-2020 season, and we hope that you will be too! Highlights are: a performance of Haydn’s Cello Concerto in C Major, featuring Brandon Wilkie on cello; the Deep River Choral Group joins us for a choral concert in December; our Baroque matinee features soprano Jessica Belanger and baritone Steve Bemis in Bach’s Peasant Cantata; in March, we give a salute to Broadway musicals; and in May, Deep River native, Megan Jones, returns as our featured violin soloist with a performance of Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole. Please see our Season Brochure for full details of all the concerts and how to subscribe.

The DRSO is a small community orchestra which is entering its 67th year of providing orchestral music to our local community. The mission of the DRSO goes beyond providing entertainment. We believe that we provide an important link with our cultural past; we work at fostering a love for orchestral music in our community and especially in our youth; we provide an opportunity for young players to develop their skills and hopefully inspire them to continue playing with an orchestra in the future; and at our best, we enable the audience to experience the music at a level that transcends the ordinary, and together we are lifted beyond our everyday existence to celebrate the creativity of the human spirit. We hope that we will be able to share our music with you this season.

The DRSO would like to thank all of the individuals who work very hard to ensure that the season is a success. These individuals include our Music Director, board members, players, both amateur and professional, local music teachers who encourage their students to join the orchestra, and parents who support their children’s musical accomplishments. We also thank all who give us financial support through sponsorships and private donations. Finally, we sincerely thank all past, present, and future audience members, for without you, there would be no orchestra. See you at the concerts!

Jane Craig,
President, DRSO

All concerts are held at Childs Auditorium, Mackenzie Community School, Brockhouse Way, Deep River.
