This fall, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra is launching the Detroit Symphony Community Orchestra, a new string ensemble for adult amateur violinists, violists, cellists, and bassists. Musicians will rehearse and perform with adult peers and DSO musicians, with the first DSCO rehearsal scheduled for October 11 at the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center. Nelson Rodriguez Parada, the DSO’s general manager of training ensembles, stresses that the DSCO is open to all adult string musicians, even those who haven’t touched their instruments in several years, though overall playing experience of two or more years is recommended. The ensemble is an initiative of the Wu Family Academy, the DSO’s learning and engagement arm that also includes ensembles for children and teenagers. For more information, click here.
