About the performers
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra, America’s fourth-oldest, has a history as varied and exciting as that of its hometown. The DSO has been at the center of Detroit’s musical heartbeat for more than 130 years, but it has faced plenty of challenges – including finding stages to play on, nearing (and sometimes entering) bankruptcy, saving its historic concert hall from demolition, and a bitter strike.
Now, two decades into the 21st century, the DSO is spreading a forward-thinking, accessibility-first mission throughout Detroit and the world. They pride themselves on artistic excellence and commitment to the city they call home.
The Detroit Opera
Detroit Opera (formerly Michigan Opera Theatre), one of the nation's most vibrant nonprofit arts organizations, aspires to influence the future of opera and dance with a goal of invigorating audiences through new and re-imagined productions, relevant to current times. It is creating an ambitious standard for American opera and dance that emphasizes community, accessibility, artistic risk-taking, and collaboration. Founded in 1971 by the late Dr. David DiChiera, Detroit Opera is led by President and CEO Wayne S. Brown; Yuval Sharon, Gary L. Wasserman Artistic Director; Associate Artistic Director Christine Goerke; Music Director Roberto Kalb; Artistic Advisor for Dance Jon Teeuwissen; and Board Chairman Ethan Davidson.
Jonathon LaChance is “not-your-father's-magician”- his impossible magic, side-splitting comedy, and audience involvement is PURE entertainment! Among his performing credits, Jonathon LaChance made magic history on the number one magic television show Penn & Teller: Fool US. His magical talents have also been seen on numerous national tv programs including Masters of Illusion, NBC Today Show, ABC, and PBS. Headlining theaters and resorts across the country with his one-man magic show called Laugh Magic LIVE! He was the winner of the Magic Close-up Classic in the Magic Capital of the World. Often Invited back by event organizers year after year, it is no surprise that Jonathon was voted “BEST magician of his family” (2 years running…). For the past several years the Magic of Jonathon LaChance has toured the country, showcasing his youthful-charm, illusions, and comedy magic.
