Dear DCS members and fellow musicians:

After over a year of working to keep Dupont Circle Symphony afloat after Darrold's passing, Katie, Michelle and I have decided -- with much deliberation -- that it is time to let DCS go.

DCS was a wonderful idea by an incredible man and passionate musician, but, unfortunately, without a conductor and stronger membership we found ourselves stuck in a "struggling community orchestra" rut that we couldn't shake.

Thank you all for sticking with us, attending rehearsals, and supporting the group along the way. We are sad we couldn't take DCS further, but we feel we gave it a good try.

As of March 1, 2015 the DCS Meet-up page will no longer exist. Please take this month to reach out to any DCS musicians you would like to keep in touch with. We look forward to seeing you all at future playing opportunities around the area.

Our best and thanks,

McKenzie, Katie, and Michelle
