he Detroit Symphony Orchestra will be playing live shows again -- outdoors and socially distanced -- next month.

The orchestra's "Summer Sessions: DSO Outdoors" series is scheduled to launch Aug. 5 in the Sosnick Courtyard near the Fisher Music Center and Orchestra Hall. Concerts each subsequent Wednesday and Sunday will also take place in the Robert C. Valade Park, the Dequindre Cut Freight Yard and Gabriel Richard Park.

These will mark the DSO's first live performances since the Covid-19 shutdown in mid-March.

The shows are general admission and free, with VIP seating ($100 for two people, $200 for four) available for the Sosnick Courtyard concerts. Attendance will be capped at approximately 75 people, with masks and social distancing required and temperature checks at the entrance. Patrons are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blanks.
