History will be made Monday, Aug. 4, when the Detroit Symphony Orchestra performs at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial.

The announcement was made to the Grosse Pointe News by War Memorial President/CEO Charles Burke.

Ticket details along with the time of the public concert, which will feature 15 performers of the DSO, will be released soon in this newspaper.

“The DSO and War Memorial recognize this is a valuable community,” Burke said. “It’s events like this that raise the community up as an example of excellence in the entire metropolitan region.”

Burke said the performance at the War Memorial will complement the DSO appearance at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores.

“This is a high level of art brought to benefit the Grosse Pointe community,” Burke said. “Never in its history has the DSO performed at the War Memorial.

“It’s really exciting to have this quality organization working with us. It’s raising the profile of the War Memorial and the DSO represents the quality metric we want to have here. This is history, water and a community coming together. It will be a great night.”
