The DSO is proud to once again partner with Midtown Detroit, Inc., community partners, and businesses to celebrate the 47th Annual Noel Night, a Cultural Center-wide holiday open house that presents free activities including: horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday shopping, family craft activities, and performances by over 100 area music, theater, and dance groups, and other special performances.

Starting at 1 PM, the DSO’s Sosnick Courtyard (located at 51 Parsons Street, adjacent to The Max) is brought to life with an ice sculpting demonstration featuring Ice Guru Randy Finch of Food Network’s Ice Brigade and students from College for Creative Studies and Wayne State University, plus holiday caroling with La Shaun phoenix Moore and The Detroit Actor’s Theatre Company.

In the evening, enjoy food and drink specials, holiday shopping, roving robots inspired by Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and photos with Santa at The Max. At 8 PM and 9:15 PM in The Cube, Gullah ambassadors and 2020 Grammy-nominated Ranky Tanky will treat Noel Nighters to back-to-back performances. . Ranky Tanky mixes South Carolina low country traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk, and R&B.

All Noel Night activities and performances at the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center are FREE of charge and open to the general public, with no tickets required. Doors to The CUBE open at 7 PM.

Please note: the DSO does not appear on Noel Night performances.
