Hurry, you have until Wednesday, July 2, 2014, to enter to win; winners will then be notified by email on July 2.
Additional tickets are also available for purchase: lawn seats are $15, pavilion seats begin at $25, and a limited number of lawn 4-packs will be available for $44.
This performance celebrates the venue’s 50th anniversary, which opened as the DSO’s summer home in 1964. However, the DSO itself celebrated its 125th anniversary in December 2012 and is most known for their trailblazing performances, visionary mestros, collaborations with the world’s foremost musical artists, and an unwavering commitment to Detroit.
The DSO welcomes Joshua Bell who is one of the most celebrated violinists in the world and a frequent collaborator with the Orchestra. A native of Bloomington, Indiana, Bell received his first violin when he was just four years old and was nationally recognized by the time he was a teen. He is an exclusive Sony Classical artist and has recorded more than 40 CDs since his first recording at the age of 18. Throughout the years, Bell has received multiple recognitions and awards for his work such as a 2011 Grammy Award and Indiana Governor’s Arts Award.
