The Danville Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1967 and is comprised of over sixty talented musicians led by Jeremy Swerling, Music Director and Conductor. We enrich the eastern Illinois and western Indiana communities with four concerts held in the Danville High School Auditorium and two youth concerts for area schools each year as well as the occasional special event.
In honor of veterans, active military, and first responders who put themselves in harm’s way to serve and protect others, the Danville Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Maestro Jeremy Swerling will present, "Heroes and Heroines," on Saturday, March 14 at 7:30 PM, in the Dick Van Dyke Auditorium at Danville High School. The concert will feature Robert Danforth, Principal French Horn of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra as well as the French Horn section of the DSO who will also be joined by the DSO Choir.
