Time flies, if you’re having fun. Looking back at 10 years with the DSSO, it seems that I just started working here yesterday! It has been an incredible honor and privilege to lead this wonderful orchestra over the past decade. Together we have performed over 200 works – on our Masterworks Series alone. We made lots of memories along the way and I can’t wait to embark on our next decade together. One thing is for certain: More great music will find its way to us and enrich our lives, beginning with our 2023/24 Season.
Established in 1931, the DSSO has flourished throughout the years to continue to bring beautiful classical melodies along with current pops concerts to Symphony Hall.
The Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra evokes a mix between the beautiful consistency of classically trained musicians with an accessible experience for new and returning guests. Throughout your experience you will notice the dedication of the musicians as they complement one another, weaving through a mix of delicate and powerful tempos. The power of music connects us all, and we are excited to welcome you to the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra! We have compiled a list of FAQs to assist you in having a more enjoyable experience.
For over 80 years, young musicians across the Northland have found inspiration in the Duluth Superior Symphony Youth Orchestras. Competitive auditions are held annually to find new members. Membership is open to students ages 10 through high school. Be part of the finest musicians from the region.
The DSSO’s vision is to create a stronger community through the power of music. DSSO musicians are continuing to live this vision by finding new and “social distance approved” ways to make music for our community! Please help us continue to make music in the Twin Ports by donating today!
