Fisher Music Center. “The Max” is a 135,000-square-foot facility which combines the restored and modernized Orchestra Hall with five additional rental spaces; here, there is a space for everyone.

Walk into History

On April 22, 1919, readers of The Detroit News learned that the old Westminster Presbyterian Church had been purchased by the Detroit Symphony Society. Then suddenly, the old church was gone. From the space created by its demolitionand even upon some of its foundation to save timeOrchestra Hall rose to new life in six months during that extraordinary summer of 1919.
