Detroit, (September 25, 2012) – For the first time in Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) history, the Orchestra’s opening Pops concert, Cirque de la Symphonie, will be “MaxCast” onto the south wall of the Max M. Fisher Music Center, lighting up the night with a free larger-than-life live stream of the DSO performing alongside world-famous Cirque acrobats. Led by renowned Pops conductor Jeff Tyzik, the MaxCast will coincide with the first Annual DLECTRICITY festival, a two-night blitz of temporary outdoor art installations using light as a medium. The MaxCast performance, which will include live and taped programming throughout the evening., will begin Saturday, October 6 at 8 p.m. Two additional performances of Cirque de la Symphonie will take place Friday, Oct. 5 at 10:45 a.m. and Sunday, Oct. 7 at 3 p.m.

Viewing outdoors is one of two ways to experience this sold-out performance. The concert will also be webcast live to a worldwide audience that evening on the Orchestra’s first Pops episode of “Live from Orchestra Hall.” Log on to dso.org/live to view the concert from your computer or download our free “DSO to Go” mobile app to view from your mobile device anywhere in the world.

“Being the most accessible orchestra on the planet is about more than reaching a global audience, it’s also about finding meaningful ways to connect with our neighbors throughout the metro Detroit community,” said Scott Harrison, DSO Executive Producer of Digital Media.

Refreshments will be available to the outdoor audience in the lobby of the Max M. Fisher Music center. Patrons are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnics to enjoy the full two-hour program. The MaxCast was made possible by generous gifts from Phillip Wm. Fisher, Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit Medical Center, Wayne State University and Midtown Detroit, Inc.

“We are so excited to join our Midtown neighbors and participate in DLECTRICITY,” said Anne Parsons, DSO President and CEO. “One of the DSO’s institutional commitments to this community is to sound brightly from the Woodward corridor, and on October 6 we will literally do just that.”

About Jeff Tyzik

Grammy Award winner Jeff Tyzik is recognized as one of America’s most innovative pops conductors, and is known for his brilliant arrangements, original programming, and engaging rapport with audiences of all ages. Now in his 19th season as Principal Pops Conductor of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO), Tyzik also currently serves as Principal Pops Conductor of the Oregon Symphony and the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. He was appointed Principal Pops Conductor of the Florida Orchestra at the beginning of 2012.

Over the course of his tenure with the RPO, he has written over 180 works for the orchestra. A consummate musician, the RPO has taken the unusual step of inviting their principal pops conductor to appear as a guest conductor in the orchestra’s classical subscription series calendar on a regular basis.

Tyzik lead the world premiere of his original work New York Cityscapes with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in June 2010. In the 2012/13 season Tyzik will conduct the RPO on the subscription series in the world premiere of his new suite: Images: Musical Impressions of an Art Gallery.

Highly sought after as a guest conductor, Tyzik has recently appeared with orchestras such as the Boston Pops, the Cincinnati Pops, the New York Pops, the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, and the Dallas Symphony at the Vail Valley Music Festival.

A native of Hyde Park, New York, Tyzik began his life in music at age 9, when he first picked up a cornet. He studied both classical and jazz throughout high school, and went on to earn both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Eastman School of Music, where he studied composition/arranging with Radio City Music Hall’s Ray Wright and jazz studies with the great band leader Chuck Mangione, both of whom profoundly impacted him as a musician.

Tyzik spent the next few years working with Mangione, which led to an oppoprtunity to co-compose a trumpet concerto with friend and virtuoso trumpeter Allen Vizzutti to be recorded by pops legend Doc Severinsen. After that first recording project, Tyzik worked closely with Severinsen on many projects including orchestrating many of the great band leader’s symphony orchestra programs, and producing a GRAMMY Award-winning album, The Tonight Show Band with Doc Severinsen, Vol. 1.

Tyzik currently serves on the Board of Managers of the Eastman School of Music.
