Saint-Saëns' "Organ" Symphony
Leonard Slatkin, conductor
Craig Rifel, organ

There is no other symphony quite like it, a towering work built around the awe-inspiring sounds of the pipe organ. More than a century after its premiere, the "Organ Symphony" remains unrivaled in its scope and majesty. Leonard Slatkin leads the Detroit Symphony Orchestra while the DSO's multi-talented Craig Rifel, normally seen and heard in the double bass section, performs as organ soloist. This concert also features the premiere of a new work by Du Yun, winner of the DSO's 4th Elaine Lebenbom Annual Memorial Award for composers.

Join our backstage pre-concert and intermission shows, featuring interviews with composer Du Yun, arranger/composer Rob Mathes, Whole Foods Detroit Community Liaison Amanda Musilli, and more!
