Our next DSOMA Meeting is Monday, September 13.

Our Free Tutoring Scholarship Program will continue for 2021-22!!

The Davis Schools Orchestral Music Association (DSOMA)—a volunteer, non-profit corporation— celebrates, promotes, and supports a vision of a comprehensive musical education that is accessible by all students in the Davis Joint Unified School District (DJUSD) (501(c)(3), tax id #20-2559539).

DSOMA’s mission is to increase access to, and support of, musical education in the Davis Joint Unified School District, and to foster community support for, appreciation of, and participation in orchestral music.

The goals of DSOMA are:

*To support and advocate for every child interested in playing strings or participating in orchestra regardless of income.

*To provide music education opportunities across DJUSD, through activities such our annual Celebration of Music Festival, Elementary Outreach and Strings Workshop, school-site mentoring, scholarships, grants, and in-kind support.

*To provide all interested school orchestra and strings programs with support for field trips, performances, teacher supplies, and the purchase, maintenance, and repair of instruments.

*To advocate for programs and funding to strengthen orchestral music education across DJUSD.

We are a 100% volunteer organization. Please join us by volunteering, donating, and participating in our fundrasing events. Thank you for your support and advocacy.

DSOMA is Sponsored and Supported

by many great local community organizations and businesses

Due to recommendations from the Yolo County Health Department, a ban of group gatherings by UC Davis, and health concerns about spread of Covid-19, DSOMA has cancelled "A Celebration of Music at the Mondavi Center" on Sunday, March 15, 2020. As well, we will not be holding "A Celebration of Music" in 2021. We look very forward to seeing you at the Mondavi on Sunday, March 13th, 2022.

Music training is a more potent instrument than any other,

because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inward places of the soul.
