Today’s events

Our first event today, the Holiday Music Pageant, has been canceled. We will honor reserved seats and pods at the Pinellas Festival of Community Bands on May 1, 2021.

Our second event today, the DMS Holiday Dinner at the Thirsty Marlin in Palm Harbor, will proceed at 5:30pm. The Thirsty Marlin has pledged to donate a portion of today’s proceeds to the DMS.

End of year donations (to help defray the costs of today’s cancelled event) and membership upgrades are available at

Thank you for your support, your understanding that not even the DMS can influence the weather, and we hope you have a wonderful holiday season. 

Dinner Donation!

Eat at or order from the Thirsty Marlin in Palm Harbor after our Holiday Music Pageant on Sunday afternoon and they will donate 10% of proceeds to the DMS!

Take-out or eat-in

Whether or not the sun shines or the rain thunders, join us at dinner time at the Thirsty Marlin on Sunday, December 20, and remember to tell them you are with the DMS!

Music and Mental Health

An article recently penned by our General Director, Maestro Stephen P Brown, and Music Therapist Sarah Michaels, was published by Medium and Thrive Global. Just takes a few minutes to read as it introduces the idea that music and mental health are related. Our new Accessibility Expansion program will help clarify our language and messaging, and even find research and data that highlights just how much live, in-person music actually impacts our mental and emotional well-being.
