Get ready for a Friday doubleheader! (yes, I realize using a baseball term to describe classical concerts is a little weird, but go with me on this one)
At 10:45AM EDT (14:45 UTC), the Detroit Symphony Orchestra will present “The Romance of Rachmaninoff.” The program will include Rachmaninoff’s Russian Song and Symphony No. 1. The conductor will be Neeme Järvi. Cellist Zuill Bailey will be featured in composer Michael Daugherty’s Tales of Hemingway, a portrayal of the life of American author Ernest Hemingway. You can see the DSO webcast here.
For those watching at home, formal attire and/or rally caps are optional.
