A Space for Everyone
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra entered a new era on October 11, 2003 with the opening of The Max M. and Marjorie S. 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. Whether you need to host a conference call for 20 participants, a wedding for 200, or a concert for 2000, The Max can meet your needs.

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 demolition—and even upon some of its foundation to save time—Orchestra Hall rose to new life in six months during that extraordinary summer of 1919.
