Guests are welcome to join free guided tours of Orchestra Hall and The Max, beginning at 2 p.m. and occurring every half hour through 4:30 p.m. Tours are open to the public and reservations are not required. Free parking is available in the DSO parking structure (81 Parsons Street) during tour hours.
The DSO has also partnered with the Detroit Historical Society to create an onsite exhibition of photos, artifacts, and interactive experiences tracing the history of Orchestra Hall and the time it spent as the Paradise Theatre (1941-1951), one of America’s top venues for jazz and blues talent. One special treat: automotive titan Horace Dodge’s personal 1920 Dodge Model 30 two-door coupe, which is on display in the center of the William Davidson Atrium. Dodge was an early supporter and financier of the DSO and may have driven to concerts at Orchestra Hall in this very car.
