It's Time For You To See The Detroit Symphony Orchestra Perform

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1887 making it the fourth oldest surviving orchestra in the US. They have a rich history of ups and downs and have come close to closing many times throughout the last 130 years, but somehow with the support of the community, they have always kept the music playing. In fact, this year they will be celebrating the 100th year that they have been performing at The Detroit Orchestra Hall. You can buy tickets to see them perform Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 and Mahler Symphony No. 4 as well as lots of other classic pieces throughout the year, but they realize that classical music isn't everyone's cup of tea. On the other hand, when you add classic music to the movies that we love, everyone seems to jump on board. The DSO has found a way to connect all of us to classical music without us even realizing it. They license the rights to classic movies that we love and play all of the music that goes along with the film live.

We had the honor of seeing the DSO perform The Empire Strikes back a few weeks ago and were blown away by how amazing of an experience it was. When the Imperial march kicked in for the first time, I was overwhelmed with glee. Music made a film that I have seen 100 times more magical than I ever imagined. They will be performing Nosferatu in October and Home Alone for December. Tickets sell out for these events so make sure that you buy them now if there is something you want to see. We also recommend that you bring some extra layers because it can get cold in the hall and it's nice to be warm and cozy while you ware watching the film. This is the kind of thing that the whole family can enjoy, but it's also a great date. To learn more about the Detroit Symphony Orchastra visit their website here.
