DCWS is putting the "chamber" back in chamber music. Structurally Sound is a concert and lecture series that presents chamber music in... architecturally significant spaces and works to relate the musical repertoire to the space's unique qualities.
The first performance of the newest series was in April 2012. The concert featured DCWS musician, trombonist David Jackson, at the Ford Piquette Plant in Detroit.
The 2012-13 season will offer two Structurally Sound concerts.
