Dubuque Community String Orchestra

 

Dubuque Community String Orchestra (DCSO) is a non-auditioned ensemble for adults of any age who play a string instrument. Now sponsored by NISOM, DCSO was founded in 1998 by conductor Tracey Rush to give non-professional musicians an outlet for ensemble performance. Since then, DCSO has presented more than forty concerts at over fourteen locations in the tri-state area, featured forty four soloists, five choirs, and a middle school orchestra, commissioned six would premieres, has had more than one hundred different string players, and has played a whole lot of music. The orchestra gives two or more free concerts per year and often collaborates with NISOM's other adult ensembles.
