Detroit, (November 11, 2020) – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) today announced a program change for the DSO Digital Concert scheduled for this Thursday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m. ET. A musician’s hand injury has resulted in the postponement of the originally scheduled live concert of chamber music by DSO musicians. The live Friday program, Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet, with pianist Marc-André Hamelin [pictured] is unchanged.
The updated Thursday program will feature highlights of past DSO performances with music by Bernstein, Still, Mozart, Bach, and Arturo Márquez. Tito Muñoz, Carlos Miguel Prieto, DSO Music Director Laureate Leonard Slatkin, and DSO Music Director Jader Bignamini are the conductors. Featured DSO soloists include Ralph Skiano (Principal Clarinet), Scott Strong (Horn), and Hannah Hammel (Principal Flute).
A trailblazer in the world of orchestral webcasting since 2011, the DSO launched a new streaming series, DSO Digital Concerts, on September 10, available exclusively on dso.org to view both live and on-demand for two weeks. Subscribers and select donors receive access to all DSO Digital Concerts, with individual tickets available for $12. DSO Replay—the orchestra’s archive of past seasons’ webcasts—remains free for all at dso.org/replay.
