Concert Description

The DSO has released a very limited number of tickets to its John Williams and Steven Spielberg benefit concert on Saturday, June 14. These exclusive tickets were artist holds that were previously unavailable to the public. The remaining seats are located on the main floor and in the dress circle, and are priced at $375 and $500.

Other seats in these sections are held by $5,000-$10,000 gala attendees (visit dso.org/heroes for more information), including a post-concert gala dinner honoring Detroit champions Dan Gilbert and Matt Cullen.

Oscar-winning composer John Williams and legendary director Steven Spielberg will join the DSO for a one-night-only gala benefit concert for the orchestra. Tickets to this special concert appearance will be available starting April 14. Both artists are donating their services for this extraordinary event.

Five-time Academy Award and 21-time Grammy Award winner John Williams returns to the DSO to conduct an unforgettable evening of music from the movies, featuring selections from some of his most popular and iconic scores, including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Jaws, E.T., Indiana Jones, Schindler's List and more. Acclaimed director and three-time Academy Award winner Steven Spielberg joins Williams to host the second half of the evening, presenting selections from their remarkable forty-year artistic collaboration, including selected film clips projected on a giant screen above the orchestra.
