The Winter Concert is this week!  Our concerts are by far our biggest fundraisers and our most important activity.   We ask that each family invite at least five new friends who’ve never seen the concerts to attend. The money will go to the student scholarship fund, and the DSAO will garner new friends dedicated to the success of our program!

Please bring the following items by grade for concessions at these concerts:

6: water, juice or sodas
7: chips and fruit (pre-packaged apple slices are great!)
8: cookies/pastries (preferably pre-packaged)
9: candy/candy bars
10: water, juice or sodas
11: cookies/pastries (preferably pre-packaged)

Seniors are exempt from donations requirements unless you wish to contribute.

Master Mentor/Visiting Artist Program

If you have not already set up a contribution, we wanted to remind you about the $350 fee,  per family,  for our Master Mentors program.  This is an expectation for all DSAO families.

Contributions can be made by check or through the DSA Friends Foundation at www.dsafriends.org.  If you can’t make the payment all at once, please do so in monthly installments.   Please make checks payable to DSA Friends Foundation, and put “Orchestra family contribution” or “master mentor” in the memo line.  Please give checks to Tracy Holt in the main office.

This is also a fantastic way for family and friends to support your student! Please pass along the dsafriends.org website link to those you know are interested in supporting our programs.

Schedule a House Party

Schedule a house party featuring DSAO musicians and ask the attendees to support  this year’s trips.  It’s a fun and easy way to introduce friends, family and community to the excellence of our program and could garner DSAO fans for years to come.

 Buy groceries, support DSAO

Make sure you purchase a reloadable King Soopers card! It’s simple to get started with a $2.50 card.  Each time you reload the card, DSAO gets 5% back! Everyone buys groceries, so it a very easy way for friends and family to contribute as well. You may email Carol Fennell for information about purchasing a card.

DSA is collecting Boxtops!

DSA receives free money for each box top turned in.  Please group the box tops in a bag or envelope, and mark them with “Orchestra” so that the funds will come to us.  The collection box is located in the main office.
