Target Family Days are fun, educational and FREE performances that will stimulate and nurture the enjoyment of classical music in an informal and family-friendly orchestra setting.

“At Target, our grants are making a difference in communities across the country,” said Laysha Ward, President, Community Relations, Target. “We’re proud to partner with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra as part of our ongoing commitment to strengthen communities where our guests and team members live and work.”

The grant is part of Target’s ongoing efforts to build strong, safe and healthy communities across the country. These efforts include Target’s long history of giving 5 percent of its income to communities, which today equals more than $3 million every week. As part of this commitment, Target is on track to give $1 billion for education by the end of 2015 to help kids learn, schools teach and parents and caring adults engage.

“Family programming is essential to our goal of unbridled accessibility,” said Anne Parsons, DSO President and CEO. “Thanks to Target, we’re able to remove any financial barrier from the enjoyment of this programming, enabling families to expose their youngsters to great music in a great hall.”
