The DSO and the FCA Foundation first began a partnership in 2017, and the 2018-2019 Season of the DSO’s Classical and PNC Pops Series will see the collaboration grow to reach more people, including those who have served their country.

Eligible concerts begin this weekend with Dancing in the Street: A Symphonic Tribute to Motown and include: all 12 Friday morning Coffee Concert performances on the Classical Series and six Friday evening performances on the PNC Pops Series, in addition to one Friday evening Classical Series concert during February’s American Panorama Winter Music Festival.
