Founded in 2016, the Detroit Community Ensembles (DCE) are dedicated to providing a safe and encouraging space for adults to continue playing their instrument. Open to all traditional classical instruments, the DCE encourages you to oil your valves and rosin your bows to pick up right where you left off, rehearsing with friends and playing concerts in Historic Orchestra Hall.
The DCE currently consists of two ensembles, the Detroit Community Orchestra and Concert Band, and welcomes players at most playing levels, regardless of how long it’s been since you last picked up your instrument. Experience of at least 2 years is recommended.
Wind players interested in auditioning to play with the orchestra will have the opportunity to do so at the start of the season.
