DSO Presents FREE Halloween Shows, Treats, and Fun For Kids

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) is opening its bag of treats with several special FREE Halloween shows and goodies for kids.


It will be a frightfully good time including a costume contest, an instrument petting zoo, and live bats that will take over Orchestra Hall! Grab your costume and come on down for some spooktacular treats for the whole family. These Halloween delights are available thanks to the generous support of MASCO Corporation and the Henry Ford II Fund.
