Join Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings as we mark 35 years of innovation and artistic excellence across metro Detroit. We’re using this milestone season to honor our women musicians, past and present, with a seated dinner and a strolling celebration. Dine and mingle in an inviting marketplace setting with live entertainment, stalls with tasty treats and opportunities to bid on exciting prizes that will bring new adventures.  There will be many ways to commemorate our past and support our future, including a live auction, raffle and wine raffle.

New this year! Sponsor a musician’s ticket – Support your favorite DCWS musician(s) by underwriting his/her ticket to the event.
