It could be argued that anyone who gets to see the Detroit Symphony Orchestra perform for free is a winner. That's particularly true for the four Clawson Patch readers who, last week, won free tickets to see the DSO at Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield.
Patch users Matt Ulbrich, Christine Trinh, Leah Saylor and Sue Ulbrich each won a pair of tickets to Thursday's show, which is part of the DSO's Neighborhood Concert Series. Winners: Your tickets are on their way!
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and features Hans Graf as conductor and Karl Pituch on horn. Pieces include Invitation to the Dance and Overture to Oberon (Weber), Horn Concerto No. 4 (Mozart) and Symphony No. 2 (Schumann).
To enter, all four readers had to explain their favorite way to spend a night out in Clawson.
The readers mentioned downtown Clawson spots such as , and stopping at the Dairy-O for ice cream.
"It's great to eat at the outside table at and grab a cone from Dairy-O," Matt Ulbrich wrote. "And now we love ; the family atmosphere there is always so friendly!"
The DSO is playing a variety of venues and dates throughout the area in its Neighborhood Concert Series. More information on the shows and purchasing tickets can be found on the DSO website.
