Detroit, (January 19, 2022) – This January, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) will continue its William Davidson Neighborhood Concert Series with an all-Mozart program led by conductor and violinist Dmitry Sinkovsky at partner venues in Southfield, Monroe, and Beverly Hills.
Sinkovsky, a favorite of DSO audiences, will lead the orchestra on January 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield, January 28 at 8 p.m. at the Meyer Theater in Monroe, and January 30 at 3 p.m. at the Seligman Performing Arts Center in Beverly Hills. The program features Mozart’s Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, Violin Concerto No. 3 with Sinkovsky as soloist, and Symphony No. 38, which was written during the composer’s time in Prague.
In addition to these concerts by the full orchestra, a trio featuring DSO musicians Jing Zhang (violin) and Jeremy Crosmer (cello), with pianist Weiwen Ma, will perform a Chamber Recital on January 31 at 7 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth. The program includes Bedřich Smetana’s emotional Piano Trio, which was dedicated to the memory of his daughter, and Detroit native Paul Schoenfield’s Café Music for Piano Trio, which draws from early 20th-century American, Viennese, light classical, gypsy, and Broadway influences. This performance is free to all Neighborhood Series subscribers. Single tickets are also available and start at $15.
Currently in its eleventh year, the William Davidson Neighborhood Concert Series brings world-class DSO performances to eight venues in seven Metro Detroit communities. Featuring repertoire curated especially for intimate venues, the series creates musical impact by connecting with audiences in their communities. DSO Chamber Recitals feature DSO musicians in a variety of settings in Detroit and across the entire metro area. In addition, DSO musicians regularly perform at schools, hospitals, senior living facilities, places of worship, parks, and other community gathering spaces.
The William Davidson Neighborhood Concert Series is made possible by a generous grant from the William Davidson Foundation. WRCJ 90.9 FM also supports the series.
Renamed in 2014 in honor of philanthropist William Davidson, the William Davidson Neighborhood Concert Series brings even more opportunities for Metro Detroiters to experience the DSO close to home. In October 2017, the William Davidson Foundation made a $15 million gift of support to the DSO–one of the orchestra’s largest ever–including continued sponsorship of the series.
