SODELO owes its existence to the many people and organizations that have helped fund the multitude of elements that go into creating a successful orchestra.  Our generous sponsors, volunteers, donors, orchestra members, and our audiences have supported our mission and made everything possible.

Our thanks go out to:

Thank you to our sponsor, AARP Delaware, for its generous support of the arts in Delaware. We are proud to work with AARP as our sponsor for our holiday concert on December 16, 2023. 

SODELO is supported, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on

The Carl M. Freeman Foundation for its generous donation and recognition of our needs as a new organization establishing itself in our community. 

The United Way Of Delaware and Spur Impact for their organization of DoMore 24, a one day digital event which helped us raise funds through our own supporters and through matching corporate funds.


We are grateful for the grant from Walmart Facility #2419 (Rehoboth Beach, DE)


We have been fortunate to attract many volunteers who have donated their time and efforts in supporting everything we do!  From concert logistics to social media, we have received tremendous and necessary support from orchestra members, friends and family, community members and more.
