The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) now opens the Peter D. & Julie F. Cummings Cube, a refurbished performance space that also marks the beginning of new programming stream for the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center’s black box performance venue. Formerly known as the Music Box, The Cube has been renamed in honor of DSO Chairman Emeritus Peter Cummings and his wife Julie, whose lifetime giving to the DSO has surpassed the $10 million milestone.

In June, the DSO appointed Christopher L. Harrington, the DSO’s Managing Director of the Paradise Jazz Series and former Director of Audience Development, as Managing Director & Curator for The Cube. A native Detroiter with a passion for music and a successful track record in audience development for the DSO, Harrington defines The Cube in terms of the Curated, Urban, and Boundless Experience it promises to deliver audiences. His inaugural season of programming for The Cube will strengthen and increase the number of the popular series known as Mix @ The Max (contemporary music mixing food, drink, shopping) and Om @ The Max (a mass yoga session set to live music), as well as add additional performances throughout the year that push the boundaries of music and offer an immersive experience for audiences.
