Detroit Symphony Orchestra Tickets

Internationally renowned Detroit Symphony Orchestra is among the oldest symphony orchestras of the U.S., famous for breathtaking performances, collaborations with leading musical artists from around the world, visionary maestros, and a most promising commitment to the city of Detroit. Leonard Slatkin, the DSO's esteemed conductor, who Los Angeles Times has called “America's Music Director”, became the orchestra's twelfth Music Director in the 2008-09 season. The DSO performs at home in the well-known Orchestra Hall, which is America's most acoustically ideal concert hall. The many performances offered by the DSO include a range of genres such as pops, classical, jazz, Neighborhood concerts, festivals and what it terms 'Young People's'. Its pops and classical opening weekends are known to have record-breaking attendances ever since the DSO's increasing participation in festivals such as Spring for Music,  as well as collaborative projects with other leading performing art organizations like the Michigan Opera Theatre, Sphinx Organization, Arab American National Museum, and San Francisco Symphony, among a host of others. Detroit Symphony Orchestra tickets are the most popular treat among high end music fans, who anticipate experiencing a trailblazing performance every now and then.

Detroit Symphony Orchestra was formed by a group of Detroit Society women in 1914, each of whom contributed a hundred dollars to the newly founded organization, pledging to find a hundred more subscribers. Soon enough, they hired first music director Weston Gales from Boston, who at the time was only twenty-seven. The orchestra performed for the first time in February of the same year at the Detroit Opera House. The orchestra gained instant recognition in 1918 with the appointment of new music director, pianist Ossip Gabrilowitsch, who took the position on the condition that a new auditorium be constructed. In less than five months, Orchestra Hall stood ready for the new director. Under the latter, the DSO rapidly gained considerable name among other prominent orchestra in the U.S., performing with the most well-established artists of the time. By 1939, the orchestra had to move to a new venue, Masonic Temple Theatre, owing to huge financial problems resulting from the Great Depression. It disbanded twice during the forties, as it relocated to three more venues, and by 1956 moved on the Detroit River's waterfront, in the Ford Auditorium where it performed for the next thirty-three years. Once here, DSO once more gained national prestige with music director Paul Paray, collecting many accolades for seventy recordings released on Mercury label.


In 1922, the DSO performed for the first ever orchestra radio broadcast to the world, conducted by Gabrilowitsch alongside guest pianist Artur Schnabel. Starting from 1934 through 1942, the DSO performed numerous times across the U.S. as official orchestra of national radio show Ford Sunday Evening Hour. In the following years, other music directors of the DSO have included Franco Ghione, Victor Kolar, Karl Krueger, Paul Paray, Sixten Ehrling, Aldo Ceccato, Antal Dorati, Gunther Herbig, and Neeme Jarvi. Among some of the most exciting programs introduced by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is their free webcast series called Live from Orchestra Hall, which is the first ever in the world. It allows the DSO fans from all over the world to stream live performances on classical weekends, which feature guest artists from the likes of Leila Josefowicz, Branford Marsalis, Emanuel Ax, and Joshua Bell. In 2010, the orchestra extended the series for mobile devices to Go mobile app suited to Android and iOS devices. With this new feature, the first complete Live from Orchestra Hall season reached a hundred and twenty thousand viewers in seventy-five countries. By 2012, the DSO Pop concert called Cirque de la Symphonie, was webcasted for the first time.


Performances offered by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra currently include Spooky Stories: Halloween, Rock O'Ween, Around the World, Sibelius Second Symphony, WSU Mondays at Max, Romance of Rachmaninoff, New Beginnings Jazz Concert, Cassandra Wilson, Civic Jazz Live, and Slatkin conducts Bolero.
