We could use your vote!
We were absolutely flattered by your support in 2014. It was because of you that we were voted the 2014 Detroit Music Awards Outstanding Community Orchestra. We are encouraging all eligible, registered Detroit Music Awards voters to consider us, once more, in the 2015 balloting.
Am I eligible and how do I vote?
If you are not registered at DMA, then the best place to start is to determine if you are eligible to vote. Check the requirements to vote at the DMA website. You can become a member, but you do not need to be a member to vote. You only need to be eligible for the voting process. Typically, anyone who can demonstrate their involvement with the music industry can become eligible to vote. This could be music professionals, sound technicians, media reps, management and more.
After you have found out if you are eligible to vote and your registration has been approved, then you can participate in Phase III of the voting process.

Star Spangled Banner – Francis Scott Key
The Orchestra Games – Gregory Smith
Not just a get to know the instruments piece, The Orchestra Games goes further by exploring the personalities of the various instruments while acquainting the listener with basic musical elements as it sprints through an Olympic array of events. The work begins with a ceremonial introduction of the players and then romps through various events such as the low note limbo, the fast note dash, the marathon and others. These events demonstrate the capabilities of orchestral instruments while keeping the audience happily engaged in the friendly competition.
