How you helpMagnet for volunteerism—attracting, engaging, and rewarding representation from across our diverse communities, joined by our love of music.
About usThe Detroit Symphony Orchestra, America’s fourth-oldest, has a history as varied and exciting as that of its hometown. The DSO has been at the center of Detroit’s musical heartbeat for more than 130 years, but it has faced plenty of challenges – including finding stages to play on, nearing (and sometimes entering) bankruptcy, saving its historic concert hall from demolition, and a bitter strike. Now, two decades into the 21st century, the DSO is spreading a forward-thinking, accessibility-first mission throughout Detroit and the world. We pride ourselves on artistic excellence and our commitment to the city we call home.
