I have loved the DSO since I first saw them in elementary school. Being a band kid, I have always loved seeing live performances of music. The DSO is grand and the music is even better. If you can catch a ticket, I highly recommend seeing the DSO for locals and travelers alike.

The Detroit Symphony and its venue, Orchestra Hall, are a very good fit. The Orchestra is first rate and the acoustics within Orchestra Hall are outstanding. Interesting to contemplate is the fact that labor issues almost closed the symphony a few years ago and before that Orchestra Hall was almost going to the wrecking ball. Fortunately both are still playing... More

This is our first visit to Detroit. DSO and Joshua Bell perform Symphonie Espagnole and the result is amazing! The sound of the concert hall is excellent although we sat in the back of the second level. Parking was very easy in the back for the concert hall. Strongly recommend for classical music lovers...

My wife and I visited to see the Planets. It was a fantastic concert and the venue is perfect for the show! We sat in the 4th row in front and I have to say that it is probably too close. My wife (the music buff) really enjoyed being this close to the musicians, but I found that it was... More

We attend the Friday Coffee Concerts during the concert season and are entertained by a fantastic symphony orchestra. A real gem of Detroit.

Attended Centennial Sinatra (Steve Lippia + DSO) at 3:00 pm on Sunday 11th October, four seats in the Dress Circle (Right Cn row G). Steve Lippia positioned too far forward on the stage; at best I could see him from the waist up, at worst he was a disembodied head. Most of the seats around us were unsold, so I... More

My husband loves the music of Frank Sinatra. Early birthday gift (December). Dinner was nice and relaxing before the show. Very enjoyable evening and truly enjoyed the show.

Beautiful venue, top-notch orchestra--consistently one of the best in the world! If you suburbanites are scared of going in to the big, bad city to see them, the DSO does put on remote performances at various times throughout the year. Check them out if the opportunity arises, you won't regret it. Every performance I've witnessed has been stellar, guests are... More
