Detroit Symphony Orchestra LIVE: November 10, 2023

Composer James Lee III
Composer James Lee III

Listen to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra perform a variety of French works and a world premiere of James Lee III's "Shades of Unbroken Dreams."

French conductor Fabien Gabel leads orchestral showstoppers direct from France, including Maurice Ravel's "Rapsodie espagnole," Paul Dukas' "Fanfare to La Péri," Albert Roussel's
"Bacchus et Ariane Suite No. 2," plus a world premiere by Michigan-born composer James Lee III (pictured above).

Lee's "Shades of Unbroken Dreams" honors the 60th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s "I Have a Dream"— a speech he famously delivered in Washington, DC in 1963, words that first rang out in Detroit, after a historic march down Woodward Avenue.

Listen to the concert live on IPR starting at 10:45 a.m. ET.
