Looking for a great way to ring in the New Year? It’s as easy as ABC – thanks to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Detroit Public Television, as we present the holiday’s hottest party set to the music of Motown’s own – Michael Jackson.
From his early years with the Jackson 5 to his mega-hit album Thriller and beyond, Michael Jackson stormed the music industry with hit after hit. With the Detroit Symphony orchestra and conductor Brent Havens, multi-talented performer James Delisco will deliver a rare combination of vocals and athletic dance moves to countdown the end of 2017 while reliving each era of Michael Jackson’s celebrated career, from ABC, I'll Be There, and Got To Be There through Beat It, Thriller, Rock With You, The Way You Make Me Feel, and many, many more.
At the acoustically perfect and resplendent Orchestra Hall, there’s no better way to get 2018 off to a great start.
The concert kicks off at 10 p.m. But there is a range of party options before and afterwards, which you can check out at the DSO’s website.
The concert will also be broadcast live on DPTV (56.1), live-streamed at dptv.org and available on Facebook Live – all made possible by a generous contribution by the Stanley and Judith Frankel Family Foundation.
When it comes to starting off the New Year with a musical bang, with apologies to Michael Jackson, you can’t beat it!
