The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) continues its 2019-2020 Classical Series and Orchestra Hall’s centennial season with an energetic three-piece program of Mahler’s Symphony No. 4, Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, and Glinka’s Overture to Russlan and Ludmilla.

Conductor Jader Bignamini, who memorably stepped in for Leonard Slatkin to close the 2017-2018 season leading magnificent performances of Puccini’s Turandot, conducts the DSO in these masterpieces featuring guest soloists violinist Yoonshin Song in the Bruch concerto and soprano Janai Brugger in the Mahler symphony.

The three concerts take place Thursday, October 17 at 7:30 p.m., Friday, October 18 at 8 p.m., and Saturday, October 19 at 8 p.m. at Orchestra Hall, within Midtown Detroit’s Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center.

Watch Live around the world: the Friday, October 18 concert will be webcast for free at and via Facebook Live, as part of the DSO’s Live from Orchestra Hall series.

One hour prior to each performance, guests are invited to enjoy an informative onstage Concert Talk about the program hosted by conductor Yaniv Segal. These lectures and discussions will be made available for later viewing on the DSO’s YouTube channel.

Thanks to a generous grant from the FCA Foundation, the charitable arm of North American automaker FCA US, the DSO welcomes military veterans, active military, and their families to access discounted tickets for the 7:30 p.m. performance on Thursday, October 17.
