In addition, on September 7, a DSO string quartet will promote the concerts with a pop-up performance at Kuhnhenn Brewing Company in Warren.

“The DSO free community concert series provides everyone with the opportunity to experience, appreciate and learn about music from an outstanding symphony orchestra,” said Faye Nelson, vice president at DTE Energy, and board chair and president of the DTE Energy Foundation. “Music and the arts are integral to a strong quality of life. Through the support of this historic cultural institution and its programs, the DTE Energy Foundation is ensuring that people across Southeast Michigan have access to a world-class organization that inspires and infuses our communities with art.”

Admission to these concerts is free, but a seat reservation is required for entry. Seats can be reserved now at dso.org, or by calling (313) 576-5111.
