This is the first history of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) to document the orchestra from its earliest incarnation in the late 19th c. to its current status as one of the top orchestras in the country. The Detroit Symphony Orchestra tells the story of the organization-the musicians, the musical directors, the boards, and the management-as they strove for musical excellence, and the consistent funding and leadership to achieve it in the changing economic and cultural landscape of Detroit. Author Laurie Lanzen Harris, with Paul Ganson, explores the cycles of glory, collapse, and renewal of the orchestra in light of the city's own dynamic economic, demographic, and cultural changes.
