RANDY NEWMAN TO PERFORM WITH DSO,
HEROES GALA TO HONOR DAVIDSON/GERSON FAMILY
WHAT: Legendary singer, songwriter and composer Randy Newman will join the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) and his Los Angeles boyhood friend, Music Director Leonard Slatkin for one very special evening of music and storytelling.
This evening is taking place in tribute to the Davidson/Gerson family. The DSO fondly remembers Bill Davidson’s passionate belief that full community engagement is not possible with concerts at Orchestra Hall alone. He proved his wisdom by funding domestic and international tours for the DSO, and his family has continued that legacy by supporting our travel to southern Florida and New York City. This season, the William Davidson Neighborhood Concert series has served thousands of families around metro Detroit, and we look forward to the continued evolution of that initiative.
