DSO Educational Programming…..

DSO Educational Programming

Here is a link to the band that is performing on the stage of Orchestra Hall next Saturday as part of the DSO Tiny Tots series:

Management describes the band thus:

Candy Band…. Featuring four metro Detroit moms that infuse rock into traditional nursery rhymes, original tunes and other children’s favorites.

Now while we have no quarrel with Candy Band, and we have no judgments about its members or the type of music they play, we have very serious concerns about management’s decision to schedule this band on the DSO Educational Series.  We feel the decision to program this event calls into question management’s entire philosophy about what classical music education programming should be.

(Full disclosure, this concert was previously scheduled and is NOT a replacement for the striking DSO musicians)
