STAR

Michigan Philharmonic Orchestra

Currently entering its 66th Season, WDET STAR recipient the Michigan Philharmonic has a new name and begins a new era. For 65 years, the orchestra was known as the Plymouth Symphony and also, for its smaller presentations, Orchestra Canton. Now as the Michigan Philharmonic, they continue to bring exciting new opportunities to provide culturally enriching and educational programming in Plymouth, Canton and surrounding communities.

The orchestras play a full season of concerts from October - May with several special concerts and programs throughout the year. A unique feature of the Michigan Philharmonic is the adventuresome programming which has garnered the orchestras 4 ASCAP awards. By highlighting new music at each concert, their audiences have the opportunity to meet composers and gain an appreciation of the wonderful, new repertoire in the classical music genre. The Philharmonic also sponsors the Michigan Philharmonic Youth Orchesta, formerly known as the Celebration Youth Orchestras.
