Announcing the New Michigan Philharmonic (formerly the Plymouth Symphony)

Currently entering its 66th Season, 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.  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, our 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.

We attended a recent concert at the Village Theater in Cherry Hill Village (Canton) and sat in the few remaining 1st row seats.  The music and musicians were close enough for us to see and hear every movement, emotion, and instrument. It was truly an amazing experience and I would recommend it to all.  The Michign Philharmonic is an incredible to asset to our community and worth your time to explore.
