This venue was formerly known as "Orchestra Hall" prior to the recent renovations. The actual hall is still the same beauty it was---a perfect home for the Detroit symphony. Treat yourself to a visit here.

One of the most beautiful venues in the country. It helps too that the acoustics from any seat are perfect.

The coffee series at the DSO is GREAT. Prices are reasonable. The coffee and donuts are free, and the music is the BEST. Still tickets available for March, April, and May. Check it out.

What can one say? The venue is gorgeous and more important the acoustics are perfection. On top of that you get to hear a world class orchestra. The Max and Orchestra Hall are the best, as is the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Thank goodness the labor/management troubles are in the past and the orchestra is back where it belongs. It is... More

A historic landmark nicely redone and with great acoustics. A wonderful place for live performances of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra or anyone else for that matter. I love that I can drive down there and get tickets without all the tickermaster fees as well. I've never attended a bad performance or had anything less than a steller visit here. Highly... More

Listened to our daughter play flute in symphony on this stage twice and just thrilled with the acoustics and beauty of the hall. It is a special place. If you get the opportunity to see a show here most definitely do it.

This music hall has among the best acoustics in the country. When the Detroit Symphony was located elsewhere for many years, the orchestra still recorded in this venue. It is relatively small. It is hard to have a bad seat, and the music quality is extraordinary.

The MMF Music Center is home to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the main auditorium, Orchestra Hall. For those who treasure all genres of music in live performance, this is THE place in Detroit to enjoy it. The acoustics in OH are so pristine that even in the upper balcony, one doesn't have to strain to hear a note. The... More
