Educational Concert Series

For more than 80 years, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra's Educational Concert Series (ECS) has introduced children across Southeast Michigan to classical music. Each concert within the series has been thematically designed with accompanying teacher resource tools available for those who purchase tickets for performances or register to watch webcasts. 

All ECS concerts take place in historic Orchestra Hall. Tickets are just $6 each for students, teachers, and chaperones!

The DSO's Educational Concert Series is presented by Target, with additional support from Fifth Third Bank, PNC and Young Woman’s Home Association.
