After living two years in the SouthEast Michigan area, I really don't feel like I've taken as much advantage of the area as I should have. Luckily, visitors really wanted to go to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, so I got a good excuse to go.
There was an excellent violinist, who at 24-years old owns and plays on a 300-year old Stradivarius. How does one get a piece of musical equipment ~ 275-years older than they are?
The DSO has a number of interesting concerts coming up as well: Music from Final Fantasy in July, and the music of Star Wars next January.
