  • Warren Symphony Orchestra
    Music director Dr. Gregory Cunningham brings his agile baton-wielding skills to the podium of the Warren Symphony Orchestra for a second year. Teaming up with the Oakland Chorale—Oakland University's elite, competitive touring choral ensemble—the orchestra will usher in the holiday season with a program that awakens cheer in Yuletide lovers and Grinch collaborators alike. Selections from Handel's Messiah send the spirit soaring on famous choruses, and a slew of popular wintery tunes keeps the auditorium cozy as hot cocoa drunk from a hand-knit mitten.

  • Cranbrook Music Guild
    Lauded by the Winnipeg News for their "combination of superb musicality and impressive technique," the members of the Borealis String Quartet have wowed sold-out audiences with their passionate, refined performances of classical compositions. Playing Italian instruments from the 17th and 18th centuries, the young ensemble stirringly interprets works by Raminsh, Mendelssohn, and Beethoven during performances ranging 60–90 minutes before encoring with a rousing rendition of the Macarena. The two violins, viola, and cello weave melodiously within the acoustic haven of Christ Church Cranbrook, an intimate Oakland County venue that has hosted chamber music for more than 50 years. A complimentary candlelight afterglow following the concert allows attendees to personally meet performers and procure autographs on their programs or pocket harpsichords.

  • Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra
    Now in its 36th season raising curtains, roofs, and audiences to their feet, the BBSO revives classical works in "From The New World". Under the direction of Conductor Charles Greenwell, ranks of masterly string wizards stage four America-inspired compositions. After pieces by Aaron Copland and Alan Hovhaness, BBSO Young Artist String Competition winner Abigail Elder will take to the spotlight to perform her rendition of William Walton’s Concerto for Viola and Orchestra, mvt. 1 before the show caps off with Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony no. 9 in E Minor, op. 95, From the New World. The symphony is a welcome change of pace from the usual evening ritual of being serenaded by nieces and nephews doing the rodent-bones lawn-fire dance.

  • Bounce House
    The name does little justice to what's inside; Bounce House doesn't just have one house, but a neighborhood of inflatable structures. Kids whizz down towering slides and help each other clamber through air-filled obstacle courses, while moonwalks sit side-by-side, forming a colorful neighborhood-scape. Though grownups aren't allowed inside the bouncy structures, they can enjoy the arcade, whose free-play games take no tokens nor banana chips.

  • Detroit Symphony Orchestra
    The nation's fourth-oldest orchestra, the DSO has been filling Detroit's music halls with top-notch euphony since 1887. By the 1920s, the orchestra came into its own, entering a golden age that saw them hosting such legends as Igor Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, and Sergei Rachmaninoff. After financial difficulties put the outfit's hall in jeopardy, a multi-decade fund-raising effort led to their triumphant return home in 1989. Today, the orchestra remains one of the most recorded symphonies in the country, bringing the classical canon to millions of listeners and giving orchestra members something to blast at family gatherings when their siblings start talking about their jobs.

    Beloved boy bands New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys rev the engines of adoration among droves of fans with their poptastic summer tour. New Kids on the Block has been plucking heartstrings and handcrafting harmonies since 1986, combining a collection of international hits such as "Hangin' Tough" and "Step by Step" with five-part choreography and fashionable duds. Following in their footsteps, the Backstreet Boys began blowing up charts in the '90s, producing a songbook replete with favorites such as "I Want It That Way," "All I Have to Give," and "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)." The NKOTBSB Tour brings both acts together for a songful extravaganza, forming the more perfect union prophesied nearly 50 years ago by the Constitution. The May 25 concert also includes the vocal virtuosity of special guest and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, adding to an ear-pleasing stew of dulcet melodies sure to soothe the most savage beast or most irascible mail carrier.
