What  better way to ring in the New Year than with Detroit Public Television (DPTV) and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s (DSO) second annual New Year’s Eve extravaganza, also known as the best party in town?

For the second year in a row, DPTV will be partnering with the DSO to bring you an evening filled with timeless R&B Soul hits and musical classics. Principal Pops Conductor Jeff Tyzik is back to lead the night with the help of legendary DSO Music Director Leonard Slatkin and with a special performance by American Idol finalist Michael Lynche.

Viewers will be able to enjoy their orchestral interpretations of iconic hits from artists like The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and others.

Festivities will kick off at 8:00 pm on Thursday the 31st at Orchestra Hall in Downtown Detroit with a red carpet event, followed by the concert and live broadcast at 10:00 pm hosted by DPTV’s own Fred Nahhat and DSO’s Assistant Conductor, Michelle Merrill.

A full orchestral performance of the New Year’s classic “Auld Lang Syne” will round out the evening to take you straight into 2016 along with a champagne toast.

Can’t attend the event? Watch at home on DPTV or stream it online by visiting (where tickets are also available).  

Major funding for this 2nd annual DSO New Year’s DPTV telecast and live webcast is provided by the Stanley and Judith Frankel Family Foundation.

Happy New Year!
