Beginning of the Year Purchase FAQs

You may pay by cash, check, or credit card:

  • If you pay by credit card, your card will be charged when you complete the check out process (online or at the performance)
  • If you plan to pay by check or cash, please indicate your preference when you checkout. You may then pay at the performance when students check in for rehearsal, or in the lobby during the concert. Please make sure to print out a copy of your receipt and bring it with you to the performance along with your payment
  • If you pay by check, please make all checks out to “DSOMA” and include "EmDVHa INT" or "EmDVHa ADV" in the memo line.
During checkout, we will ask you to name a student, along with their school and orchestra. We'll deliver the disc(s) to the student you designate at their school.

If you would like to request a different manner of delivery, contact us at to make arrangements.

DSOMA is an all-volunteer organization. All proceeds from sales go to support music programs at our schools. Your donations make it possible for DSOMA to help the orchestra program in many ways, including purchasing and maintaining instruments, offsetting field trip costs, and outreach concert programs. Thank you for your support!

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (Tax ID # 20-2559539), all or part of your gift to DSOMA may be tax deductible as a charitable contribution.

“A donor may only take a contribution deduction to the extent that his/her contribution exceeds the fair market value of the goods or services the donor receives in return for the contribution."

Please check with your tax advisor.
