For a number of years, the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival has shared administrative leadership with
Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings and the Eisenhower Dance Ensemble. These organizations have separate missions
and distinct boards of directors, but share office space and administrative services. These relationships have
pooled financial resources so that all organizations can afford access to staff with specialized skills in areas
such as marketing, development and finance.
Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings is an ensemble committed to bringing to life the body of repertoire that utilizes between 6 & 20 musicians. DCWS musicians are drawn primarily from the Detroit Symphony and Michigan Opera Theatre orchestras. Now in its 31st year, Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings presents an annual subscription series, the Nightnotes series, and new in 2012, the Structurally Sound series. Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings was named Crain's Detroit Business 2010 Best-Managed Nonprofit. Find out more at www.detroitchamberwinds.org.
