Classic Arts News   Detroit Symphony Gives Free 'Concert of Remembrance' in Honor of Max M. Fisher
 
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra will give a free performance on May 15 in honor of the late Max M. Fisher, the orchestra's great benefactor, who died in March.

The concert will be conducted by Thomas Wilkins.

The performance, entitled "Concert of Remembrance," will also be dedicated to "all loved ones who have passed, but whose lives and memories continue to be celebrated by families, friends, and colleagues."

Concertgoers have submitted the names of late friends and family members to be included in the concert program.

Anne Parsons, DSO president and executive director, said, "This year has been marked by a number of profound losses in our DSO family. Our great friend and benefactor Max Fisher passed away on March 3, and we also recently lost previous DSO music director Sixten Ehrling and music advisor Gary Bertini. While it is difficult not to have these individuals among us anymore, we want to honor their memories and celebrate the gift of friendship."

Tickets to the concert are free, but must be reserved through the Max M. Fisher Music Center box office at (313) 576-5111.
