The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) has welcomed welcome three new full-time musicians to its ranks beginning this month for the 2018-2019 Season.

Mike Chen, viola, will join the DSO after seven seasons as Associate Principal/Acting Principal Viola of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Abraham Feder will join the DSO this season as Assistant Principal Cello (Dorothy and Herbert Graebner Chair). Feder was most recently a member of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and served as Assistant Principal Cello of the Santa Fe Opera this summer. Nicholas Myers, bass, will also join the DSO this fall. A Michigan native, Myers won his audition while completing his graduate studies at The Juilliard School.

As announced in April, the DSO welcomes two new African-American Orchestra Fellows for the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons: Michael Gause, trumpet, and Adam Sadberry, flute. Thanks to generous support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the number of African-American Orchestra Fellows has increased from one to two beginning this season.
