Denver School of the Arts Orchestras

Dr. Enrique Lasansky, Director of Orchestras

 DSA High School Orchestra, Fall 2015

DSAO is an intensive program for string musicians seeking to develop their talent, understanding, and passion for music. As the Rocky Mountain Region’s only public 6-12 school for the arts, and a member of the Denver Public Schools, DSA welcomes promising young students who seek a challenging and inspiring environment in which to pursue their musical passion. 

The DSAO serves talented and dedicated string musicians who play the violin, viola, cello or double bass. Our program explores a diverse spectrum of musical styles and genres with an emphasis on classical technique and repertoire. Admittance into the program is by successful audition. Auditions are open to any student living in the United States. Although most of our students come from Colorado, students from as far away as Texas, Wisconsin and Florida have recently joined our orchestras.

Please contact Dr. Enrique Lasansky, Director of Orchestras, at Enrique_Lasansky@dpsk12.org  if you have any questions about the program.
