I first visited the Orchestra Hall for the first concert at the end of its rescue from the wrecking ball. The Korean National Orchestra performed beautifully and I was mesmerized by the unbelievable acoustics. No other place can compare. Visit it soon!

Last Friday I saw Take Six at The Max Fisher (Orchestra Hall), I had front row seats for $50.00. How great was that? I go the the Max Fisher often for Jazz and it is a class act from beginning to end. I usually valet my car but with the tram construction I just park at the lot across the... More

This building is an historical and architectural treasure. Get to your concert early so you can enjoy the interior design. Parking is to the south, across Parsons St. My map app has the theater in the wrong place, so search for both the Max M. Fisher Music Center and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. That'll get you there and it'll be... More

The acoustics are really superb. I've been going to concerts for over 60 years. Few halls are as good as the Fisher, and none are better.

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.

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
