Detroit orchestra hopes Kid Rock show raises $1M

FILE - In a Jan. 15, 2011 file photo, Kid Rock performs at Ford Field in Detroit. The musician is known for dabbling in all kinds of musical genres: hip-hop, hard rock, country and Southern rock. Classical? Not so much. But he jumped at the chance to play a show with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, May 12, 2012. The concert is designed to raise some much-needed cash for the DSO, which has been on shaky financial ground in recent years. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio, File)This time last year, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra was about a month removed from a contentious musicians’ strike that worsened its already strained finances. Now, the rebounding organization aims to raise the roof — and hopefully $1 million — with help from a hometown musician known more for rock, rap and country than classical.
