Orchestra Hall

Orchestra Hall on Woodward in Detroit, opened 90 years ago on October 2, 1919. Many great performers and conductors have stood on its stage. Fortunately, it was saved from the wrecking ball in the 1970's and ever so beautifully restored. The acoustics here rival other venues throughout the world. It is home to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra which is playing Barber's Adagio and Strauss' Don Quixote this weekend.
