October 17, 2011, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) will offer an exclusive ticket price for Detroit residents for the first time in its history. The Detroit Rush Initiative offers Detroiters single tickets to any classical or jazz concert at Orchestra Hall for just $20. Patrons can begin reserving seats in any section excluding the box level up to two weeks before a performance. Each resident may buy two tickets per concert. A valid photo ID with a Detroit address is all that is required.

The Detroit Rush Initiative joins HD Webcasts (“Live from Orchestra Hall”) and the new Neighborhood Residency Initiative as the first of their kind among major American orchestras.

“As the DSO extends its reach as a community-supported orchestra to six metro Detroit neighborhood residencies, we’re celebrating Southeast Michigan’s treasured cultural landmark, our home at majestic Orchestra Hall in the Max M. Fisher Music Center,” said Kareem George, DSO managing director of community programs. “We’re playing our part in Detroit’s renaissance by recognizing our closest neighbors and bolstering the growing sense of pride that emanates from Midtown and the city at large.”

Later this year, the DSO will re-launch its wildly popular 37/11 ticketing program for young professionals, offering an annual membership at $37 and tickets to each Orchestra Hall concert thereafter at just $11. Membership includes invitations to exclusive events and more.

Patrons can reserve Detroit Rush tickets by calling (313) 576-5111 or in person at the Max M. Fisher Music Center box office at 3711 Woodward Ave. New box office hours are:

Monday, Tuesday and Friday: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Wednesday and Thursday: 12-7 p.m.

Saturday: 1-5 p.m.

And two hours before each concert.

About the Neighborhood Residency Initiative

In October of 2011 the DSO introduced the Neighborhood Residency Initiative, which includes six separate concert series at venues within six metro Detroit neighborhoods: Beverly Hills, Bloomfield Hills, Dearborn, Grosse Pointe, Southfield and West Bloomfield Township. The DSO is the first major American Orchestra to establish long-term performance and education residencies across its own region.

The Neighborhood Residency Initiative (NRI) will expand the Orchestra’s existing presence in these communities through new concerts, educational partnerships, chamber music recitals, and other seasonal programming.

Neighborhood residencies are built within the Orchestra’s schedule at Orchestra Hall, one of the most revered concert venues in America. With the Neighborhood Concert Series, comprised of 24 newly added concerts to the orchestra’s schedule, NRI is the DSO’s most significant artistic initiative since the return to Orchestra Hall in 1989.

About the DSO:

The internationally acclaimed Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the fourth-oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, is known for trailblazing performances, visionary maestros, collaborations with the world’s foremost musical artists, and an unwavering commitment to Detroit. Esteemed conductor Leonard Slatkin, called “America’s Music Director” by the Los Angeles Times, became the 12th Music Director of the DSO during the 2008-09 season. The DSO offers a performance schedule that includes Classical, Pops, Jazz, Young People’s, Neighborhood concerts and festivals. The DSO makes its home in historic Orchestra Hall, one of America’s most acoustically perfect concert halls, and actively pursues a mission to impact and serve the community through music.

  1. Hey, DSO. What about the rest of us? We are regular concert goers and I’m not eligible for a $20 ticket because, although I live in metro-Detroit, I don’t have a Detroit address? I guess that shows me how much you (don’t)value my patronage.
    I am not happy.

  2. Peggy, Not to worry! Since we recently launched our Neighborhood Residency Initiative, in which metro Detroiters enjoy a $25 ticket to a venue in their own back yard, we wanted to make sure and recognize Orchestra Hall as a neighborhood venue for those living in the city. Also, over half of the regularly-priced tickets at Orchestra Hall are $25 or less, thanks to our Patron-Minded pricing! We very much appreciate your patronage and look forward to seeing you this season!

  3. Wow! The blog post mentions that non-Metro tix were discounted, but I hope you post again with those lowered prices. What a great initiative and a wonderful way to bring new audiences to the symphony. Good luck!
