The Detroit Symphony Orchestra's Educational Concert Series (ECS) has introduced students to classical music for more than 80 years. With special hosts and thoughtfully chosen music, these concerts bring kids inside the orchestra.
Through the ages, visual artists and composers have shared many of the same sources of inspiration, reflecting history, tradition, and their communities. Join the DSO, in collaboration with the Detroit Institute of Arts, to learn what visual art and symphonic music have in common.
