Mission Statement: For the love of music, the joy of friends and the fellowship of neighbors we come together to reach out.

The DHS Music Club is designed for the pure love of music. It is not a requirement to be enrolled in a music course in the schools such as band, choir, orchestra, theory, etc. If you love music, this club is for you. Our desire is to provide a stress free environment to learn, grow, and share musical talents. We will be planning events specifically centered on the enjoyment of music for the Dover School District and the general public. DHS Music Club strives to ensure the affirmation of our talented students as well as the continuation of community awareness regarding the Dover traditions in musical excellence.
