The Detroit Symphony Orchestra returns to seven Metro Detroit venues as the 2018 William Davidson Neighborhood Concert Series gets underway.
Music Director Leonard Slatkin will conduct the DSO in a program that includes Fauré’s Pelléas et Mélisande, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 (with 12-year-old piano prodigy Harmony Zhu), and Mozart’s Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter.”
The concerts take place Thursday, January 11 at 7:30 p.m. in Southfield (at Congregation Shaarey Zedek); Friday, January 12 at 8 p.m. in Clinton Township (at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts); and Sunday, January 14 at 3 p.m. in Beverly Hills (at Seligman Performing Arts Center on the campus of Detroit Country Day School). Slatkin will give a pre-concert lecture about the program one hour prior to each performance. After each concert, he will meet fans and sign copies of his new book, Leading Tones.
