A Message from the Maestro:

Join the Detroit Symphony Orchestra for what will be one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory! In addition to our annual winter music festival, this time focused on Mozart, we will feature a theme that runs throughout the season.

Gershwin and His Children: The Influence of Popular Culture on Classical Music will be a survey of music demonstrating how our own culture has influenced composers around the world. In addition to the music of Gershwin, we will perform more than 25 works that fit this theme, both old and new.

American culture plays a prominent role in the season, and the programs include 17 works by 13 American composers, including legends Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein, as well as those active in today’s music scene, such as Wynton Marsalis, John Corigliano and Michel Camilo.

Over the three-week Mozart Festival, the orchestra will perform the composer’s last six symphonies. But the real treat lies in the concertos. Each of Mozart’s works for solo winds and orchestra will be played, as well as works for multiple soloists. All of these compositions will be performed by members of the DSO! 15 of our own musicians will take the stage front and center for what promises to be a true festival of musical delights.

I hope you will join me for this very special season.
