The Detroit Symphony Orchestra has featured music from a variety of composers.
But a bit different symphonic sound invaded Orchestra Hall this week.
It was the music of Led Zeppelin, backed by the DSO.

Havens also revealed some snazzy moves as he jumped into the crowd in Detroit during the classic Zep tune ”Dancing Days.”
