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.

Top rated orchestra. A pleasure to listen to. Their festivals focusing on a particular composer are addictive. For example, Beethoven (2013-2014 season) and Tchaikovsky this past season presented a wonderful opportunity to hear many of their works.

Have seen the DSO numerous times, playing classical, broadway tunes, modern music, etc. A versatile and superb group of musicians led by a very fine conductor, Leonard Slatkin. Definitely a very worthwhile visit.

I am from a place where the local symphony rarely strays from pieces such by Vivaldi, Strauss, Tchaikovsky. So being able to see the Detroit Symphony play a Benjamin Britten and Arvo Part was really a treat.
