DSO's Chamber Recital Series begins this month; features performances at intimate venues throughout Detroit and metro area

- Three of six 2019-2020 Chamber Recitals are free and open to the public

- Additional recitals will be announced at a later date

Detroit, (November 12, 2019) – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) will present chamber recitals at intimate and unexpected venues across Detroit and throughout the metro area during the 2019-2020 season. Chamber recitals feature members of the DSO in smaller ensembles – usually three to eight players – performing repertoire not often heard on the Orchestra Hall main stage.

Six chamber performances were announced today, and additional recitals will be scheduled for the remainder of the season. The performances take place at community spaces (like the Durfee Innovation Society in Detroit’s Dexter-Linwood neighborhood and the laundromat/coffee shop The Commons on the east side), churches, and other unconventional venues.

See below for a complete listing of upcoming chamber recitals, and visit dso.org/chamber as more recitals are announced.

Three of the six upcoming performances are free and open to the public, thanks to the support of Cadillac.

The remaining two performances are presented as part of the William Davidson Chamber Recital series and are free to subscribers of the William Davidson Neighborhood Concert Series, under which the full DSO performs classical repertoire at eight community venues across Metro Detroit.
