Founded in the fall of 1962 by 60 charter members dedicated to supporting the Dearborn Symphony, WADOS has grown over the past 40 years to more than 250 women and men. WADOS provides important financial support and volunteer services for the Dearborn Symphony, helps build knowledgeable and supportive audiences, and provides educational opportunities for students and adults.

WADOS raises funds through many projects and events. Our 2008 Home Showcase was a big hit. Look for more such events to come. We sell Entertainment Books, sponsor Jewelry Exchange, and Bridgerama. Watch for other special events!

In addition to fund-raising, WADOS hosts concert afterglows, dress rehearsal refreshments for musicians, and “Concert Previews,” informative and entertaining preludes to concerts. WADOS’ Education Fund awards scholarships to outstanding music students, and sponsors music clinics and workshops for Dearborn students. A stimulus to students and teachers, these events enhance musical enjoyment and provide models of excellence.
