Detroit Symphony Orchestra Musicians, who are in stalled contract negotiations with DSO management, will head to Campus Martius Park on Thursday, August 26th for a lunchtime meet and greet/concert with park goers and their fans in an effort to raise visibility of their ongoing talks.
“We want the public to know that the DSO may no longer be the world-class symphony orchestra we all love," said DSO trombonist Kenneth Thompkins, a spokesperson for the musicians. "Through the broadcasts of our concerts, through our tours, through our recordings, we've been Detroit's most successful ambassador to America and the world--up to now. We may no longer be able to attract the best guest conductors, the best artists, the best musicians."
In addition, the musicians will also be giving away pairs of free tickets to their upcoming two concerts, Saturday, September 11, 8 PM, and Sunday, September 19, 3 PM, at Kirk in the Hills, 340 West Long Lake Road, Bloomfield Hills, MI 48302.
The event is free to attend but RSVPs are appreciated. To RSVP for the event, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
