Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) ticket price slashed to $15 for Detroit Residents

Ford Foundation gift slashes DSO ticket price to $15 for Detroit residents

The Ford Foundation, with headquarters in New York, has made a major, two-year grant to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) which will enable Detroit residents to attend a DSO concert for just $15.

The “Detroit Rush Initiative,” made possible by the Ford Foundation, offers Detroiters single tickets to any classical or jazz concert at Orchestra Hall for just $15 on a best-seat-available basis. Patrons can begin reserving seats in any section excluding the box level up to two weeks before a performance. Each resident may buy two tickets per concert. A valid photo ID with a Detroit address is all that is required.

"This initiative makes it possible for the DSO to connect with an even broader constituency,” said DSO Music Director Leonard Slatkin. “With our home base being at Orchestra Hall, we hope to entice our new neighbors, as well as old friends, to come and hear their orchestra as often and affordably as possible."

Patrons can reserve Detroit Rush tickets by phone at (313) 576-5111 or in person at the Max M. Fisher Music Center box office at 3711 Woodward Ave. New box office hours are:

Monday, Tuesday and Friday: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Wednesday and Thursday: 12-7 p.m.
Saturday: 1-5 p.m.

And two hours before each concert.
