The National Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China

Unless you hang out with cartoon chefs, it’s rare to see plates spinning in midair. But The National Acrobats of the People’s Republic of China make all sorts of animated feats spring to life. That’s because the troupe taps into the 2,000-year-old traditions of acrobatics and contortion to defy gravity and wow crowds. On stage, an upside-down acrobat might balance atop a tower of chairs, another might use one hand to hold himself on a man’s head, while still others form surreal pyramids, spin plates, and charge the stage on the backs of elaborate Chinese dragons.

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.
