Pursuit of the Podium supports a variety of initiatives consistent with the DSO’s mission, which is to engage the tri-state community and enrich its quality of life through live musical performances and educational programs. The DSO serves approximately 20,000 people each year. Since Pursuit of the Podium was first introduced during the 2012-2013 season, twenty-three community leaders have participated and raised more than $135,000.
