We've been to several concerts and the most recent was this past Sunday. Orchestra Hall has great acoustics and the sound quality is excellent. I'm not a huge "arts person" but I do enjoy a good concert when I get an opportunity

This is a treasure which was almost lost. Ticket sales only cover 40% of the budget, so go buy your tickets and make a financial contribution to this orchestra - YOUR Detroit Symphony!

The DSO is an exceptional orchestra, and Orchestra Hall is an ideal location to hear them. This review is not about them but about the Mix @ The Max space and the music that the DSO programs there. Mix @ The Max is in another part of the building with a configurable seating system that can flow from intimate caberet... More

So enriching to hear a world-class symphony orchestra in one of the world's most perfect acoustic buildings. Worth going to Detroit just for the orchestra.

We have been to the Detroit Symphony twice on visits to Detroit and one can only say: Spectacular. It is renowned for its acoutics and deserves the renown. We'll go again.

I was recently saw the DSO for a "Century of Broadway". Performance was good. Valet parking was a bonus for my elderly mother. It costs $12. Sort of slow leaving. Your other parking choices are across Woodward or across the side street. We ate in the Paradise Lounge right on premises. I thought the food was fabulous. My elderly mother... More

We recently attended Carmina Burana at the DSO. It was very good. Really good. The location of the venue is very nice, with new apartments and a Whole Foods in the area. There is a restaurant at the location (we didn't try it) and a bar as you walk in. We had wine, it was good. Our seats were mid-balcony... More

Enjoyed the holiday presentation "Home for the Holidays". The DSO is one of the finest symphony orchestras that I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. The guest conductor Thomas Wilkins was very entertaining. The High School Choirs were a great accompaniment. This was my first visit to Detroit Symphony Hall and is a beautiful venue and enjoyed the acoustics... More

Heard the Christmas Pops this year - the sound of the orchestra and singing was superb. The old-style elegance of the Max sends you to another time. Very relaxing experience and recommend trying it out to anyone - lots of different music available.

This was an excellent concert. The DSO is amazing with very talented members. Definitely worth the price of a ticket
