For the first time in seventeen years, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is headed to New York to play Carnegie Hall.
Thursday night marked their first of two performances. Symphony patrons from Detroit who followed the orchestra out to New York waved colorful red bandanas in support of their esteemed musicians. But even if you aren’t in New York City tonight (Friday), you can still tune in and support the DSO in their cross-country venture.
Conductor Leonard Slatkin will lead the orchestra in Friday night’s performance, featuring several selections of music, all from modernist composer Charles Ives.
To listen live, tune into www.wqxr.org. The concert is scheduled to begin at 7:30 EST.
