DSSYO wants YOU!

In addition to advance performance opportunities and weekly rehearsals, your DSSYO membership includes tickets to DSSO concerts (exclusions apply), professional coaching, as well as the annual retreat.

The DSSYO membership is one of the most affordable music programs for youth in the area, and it is our aim to provide tuition assistance to those that need it. Monthly payment plans are available for set up and tiered levels of reduced tuition are available based on need. Tuition assistance and monthly payment plan options will be mailed out with acceptance letters. Questions regarding tuition can be directed to Melissa Lentz, Patron Services and Operations Assistant.
