DSO Announces Two Additional Grosse Pointe Concerts


Detroit, (Feb. 24, 2012) – Due to popular demand, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announces that it will offer two additional concerts for the Grosse Pointe Neighborhood Concert Series. Thanks to an overwhelming response from Grosse Pointe area residents, the DSO is pleased to offer two additional concerts on April 27 and June 15 at 8p.m. which will be held at First English Evangelical Lutheran Church at 800 Vernier Rd. in Grosse Pointe Woods.

The program for April 27 will feature works by Mozart and Britten. The same repertoire is featured in the originally-scheduled Neighborhood Concerts that weekend.  Elizabeth Schulze will conduct the Orchestra and DSO Acting Associate Concertmaster Hai-Xin Wu will be featured as a soloist in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3.  The program for June 15 is still being planned.

The Neighborhood Concert Series consists of four-concert, subscription-based series in six metro Detroit venues in Beverly Hills, Bloomfield Hills, Dearborn, Grosse Pointe, West Bloomfield Township and Southfield. The concert series is just one element of the DSO’s visionary Neighborhood Residency Initiative, a program aimed at building deep relationships throughout Southeast Michigan and ultimately meaning more to more people.  Log on to www.dso.org for more information about the Neighborhood Concert Series.


Individual tickets for the Neighborhood Concert Series are $25 for adults, $10 for children under 18 and students. Subscriptions are $40 for the two additional Grosse Pointe concerts.

About the Neighborhood Residency Initiative

In October of 2011 the DSO introduced the Neighborhood Residency Initiative, aimed at making the orchestra mean more to more people within Detroit (its home neighborhood) and in 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 programming.

Neighborhood residencies are built within the orchestra’s schedule at Orchestra Hall, one of the most revered concert venues in America.
