They DSO gave a perfect performance give Journey a rich, deep musical experience. The Journey group gave a fun and very good performance of favorite Journey songs. The combination was incredible and we are still... More

I first visited the Orchestra Hall for the first concert at the end of its rescue from the wrecking ball. The Korean National Orchestra performed beautifully and I was mesmerized by the unbelievable acoustics. No other place can compare. Visit it soon!

This building is an historical and architectural treasure. Get to your concert early so you can enjoy the interior design. Parking is to the south, across Parsons St. My map app has the theater in the wrong place, so search for both the Max M. Fisher Music Center and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. That'll get you there and it'll be... More

The acoustics are really superb. I've been going to concerts for over 60 years. Few halls are as good as the Fisher, and none are better.

This venue was formerly known as "Orchestra Hall" prior to the recent renovations. The actual hall is still the same beauty it was---a perfect home for the Detroit symphony. Treat yourself to a visit here.
