Founded in 2005, the Springfield-Drury Civic Orchestra is southwest Missouri’s regional community orchestra. Comprising more than 100 talented professionals, students, and enthusiasts, the SDCO presents a concert season of great orchestral masterworks, all free and open to the public.

Performances are held on the campus of Drury University (900 North Benton Avenue, Springfield, MO) and at Hammons Hall (Missouri State).

In recent years, the orchestra has been a prizewinner in the national American Prize Competition and collaborated with numerous regional artists and organizations--including a new partnership with the Springfield Chamber Chorus.

This season, we’ll introduce after-the-concert events at local restaurants, featuring members of the orchestra in a more intimate chamber music settings!

Although admission is free, donations are gladly accepted. If you are interested in helping to support the SDCO, please see the “Support the SDCO” section of the website.
