Hello,The DSO is offering a free concert at the FCPAC on Sept. 22 at 3:00.  I wanted to  let you know about this and ask that you put this info. on your school blog so that families will be able to take advantage of this free concert.   Feel free to also share this with your staff.  Thanks!

Concert Description:

On Sunday, September 22 at 3 PM, the DSO will give a free performance at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, sponsored by the DTE Energy Foundation. Across all of its 2019-2020 programming, the DSO celebrates the centennial of Orchestra Hall, built in 1919 as the first permanent home of the orchestra. From 1941-1951, Orchestra Hall became the Paradise Theatre, a celebrated venue for jazz and blues artists. The 2019-2020 season also marks the 20th anniversary of the DSO’s Paradise Jazz Series, which takes its name from Orchestra Hall’s ten-year history as the Paradise Theatre.

Join conductor Jacob Joyce as the Detroit Symphony Orchestra celebrates the centennial of Orchestra Hall, featuring works performed during the Orchestra’s first season at Orchestra Hall. The DSO pays tribute to the hall’s jazz roots with a performance of Duke Ellington Fantasy, a nod to the Paradise Theatre’s earliest concerts, which included a date featuring Duke Ellington just four weeks after the venue opened.

DPS Premier Citizen Discount Cards available

Dearborn Public Schools has a tradition of welcoming and encouraging senior citizen residents to attend school events by offering free admission and other special discounts via the Premier Citizen Discount Card.

District residents over the age of 60 can stop in to any Dearborn Public School or the Administration Building, 18700 Audette St., to pick up this year’s Premier Citizen Discount Card.

“Many local residents in the over 60 crowd are Dearborn Public Schools alumni or parents of former students. We are happy to welcome them back to school,” notes Dearborn Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Glenn Maleyko. “With the Premier Citizen Discount Card, senior residents can enjoy discounts or free admission to school programs, including musical performances, sporting events, and even lunch in the cafeteria.” 

The Premier Citizen Discount Card is free andoffers great discounts on school activities and school merchandise including:

  • Free admission to most school-sponsored activities including concerts and athletic events.  Discounted tickets are available for plays, which are not free because schools must pay for performance licenses.
  • Discounts on select Community Education classes.
  • 10% discount on merchandise sold at school stores. (Limit four items per year.)
  • Participation in school lunch programs at reduced prices.  The reduced price is a 10% discount on the total purchase.  (Seniors must contact the school in advance to participate.)

“Community members will be proud of the accomplishments of the young people in their neighborhood,” Maleyko added. “We hope that everyone over the age of 60 will pick up a Premier Citizen Discount Card and take advantage of the free admission and discounts to have an entertaining or informative experience in the Dearborn Public Schools.”
