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

We are season ticket holders and absolutely love the shows. The Pops series are great for people interested in the symphony but not accustomed to classical music. The Pops series has had themes for Elvis, Abba, Freddie Mercury, Cirque Du Soleil, Star Wars, and tons of other genres.

What an amazing symphony we have in Detroit. The sounds are incredible and the commentary at the performance was very enlightening.

We live in a city that has a great & awesome symphony. I don't go hardly enough but when I do I kick myself for not going more.

Just when one would think going to the DSO was a snooty experience, it's not. It's not full of stuff suits in top hats and canes. The audience is diverse and eclectic. And the acoustics in this venue are amazing. The shows (and we've been to several) are very approachable and informative. The sight lines are incredible and the DSO... More

This was my first time at Orchestra Hall, having only heard the DSO in neighborhood concerts. The pairing of the Indigo Girls with the DSO was pure genius. Two guitar-playing singers backed up by the depth and richness of the DSO made for a unique experience. Indigo Girls' fans were boisterous and vocal, and although it was unlike other symphony...

I have never been disappointed from the many times that I have attended the Detroit symphony, both in their very nice facility and when they have played concerts in other locations in the greater Detroit area.

My husband and I attended the DSO as an anniversary gift to each other. It was delightful. There is nothing that compares to a great concert in a beautiful hall. The sound was excellent and the evening was well spent. Parking was close and easy to get in and out of. We are definitely making this our yearly anniversary treat!

I thought I would treat my wife to something special for Valentine's day so I book a room at the Book Cadillac, bought two tickets to the DSO and brunch at Snug and Traffic. This was my first time attending a symphony orchestra and was a little unsure as to what to expect. What a pleasant surprise! Just an amazing... More
