Spring 2021 Virtual Choir Concert
DC Community Orchestra, Spring 2021

Musicians of all levels are invited to expand a love for music with us! We provide opportunities for you to express your artistic nature, continue your musical growth, and make life-long friendships.



DC offers scholarship opportunities to all of our incoming student musicians - just for playing in an ensemble! It's a simple application to be considered and you're eligible to apply as soon as you complete your application to DC. Music scholarships are renewable every year you're involved with music programs.


Our Performance Ensembles are open to everyone regardless of major or sport. We make it easy for you to continue your love of music while staying on track with your academic coursework. If you have a love of music and want to take your talent to the next level, then we are here to support you. Thanks to our Music Patrons, you may even qualify for a music scholarship!

Serious about music? Consider adding a music minor! Pairing our music minor with another major will open even more doors upon graduation.

For example, you could combine:

  • Business and a music minor for a career in arts administration or music business
  • English and a music minor for a career in music journalism
  • Social work, education, and a music minor could provide alternate techniques for working with students/clients, as well as, prepare you for masters programs in music education or music therapy
