Orchestra Hall, the home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra has some of the best acoustics in the world, and they showcase world-class talent. The ticket prices are very reasonable compared to other cities. I highly recommend this lovely orchestra.

Consistently fine music, spirited performance, great guest artists, terrific acoustics. Leonard Slatkin is not only a great conductor, but a personable human being.
