The Detroit Symphony Orchestra is offering the Oakland University campus community a discount ticket offer for its Thanksgiving weekend performance series, which will feature Finnish violinist Elina Vähälä performing John Corigliano's cinematic "Red Violin" concerto and conductor Leonard Slatkin leading the DSO premiere of Aaron Copland's one-act ballet, "Grohg."

Set for 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 28, and Saturday, Nov. 29, as well as at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 30, the concert series will be accompanied by informative discussions with Mark Clague, associate professor of musicology and director of research at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance. The discussions will start one hour prior to each performance.
