For 124 years, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra has euphonically transported ears to heights of musical bliss with world-class interpretations of beloved orchestral works. On November 4, conductor Joana Carneiro will direct renowned guitarist Xuefei Yang in the ethereal Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo before leading the symphony through the soaring tunes and fugitive eighth notes of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony no. 5. Venerable baton wielder Leonard Slatkin guides the orchestra through the complex structures of Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony no. 8 on November 25 and 27 before the players’ rendition of Rachmaninoff’s Symphony no. 3 hugs eardrums like a Q-tip with separation anxiety. Composer and DJ Mason Bates scratchily kicks off the evening, joining the orchestra to mix turntable magic with classical verve.
Orchestra Hall ensconces symphony-goers in early-20th-century elegance. Opulently decorated walls and exquisite acoustics satiate optic and aural appetites alike, and a historically accurate marquee displays top-billed performers and reminds passersby that their ovens might be on.

About 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.
