DSO Performing for Veterans

The FCA Foundation’s partnership with the DSO will also enable the orchestra to collaborate with the John D. Dingell Veterans Affairs Medical Hospital. DSO musicians will perform for the veterans at the hospital and also provide webcasts in patient rooms.

The first of these collaborations will occur November 9 at the hospital’s Medical Center Atrium.


“Our partnership with the DSO provides an opportunity to demonstrate our support and gratitude for the members of the U.S. armed forces, their families, and the community,” said Shane Karr, Head of External Affairs, FCA – North America and President, FCA Foundation


FCA US is a Veteran-Friendly Employer

The FCA Foundation and FCA US also have an extensive history of supporting veterans and their families.

FCA US received Silver Status as a Michigan Friendly Employer by the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency in recognition of recruitment strategies aimed at veterans. Currently, FCA US has 23 employees on active military leave, with 434 currently serving as active or inactive reservists and guardsmen and more than 5,100 employees are military veterans.


“The DSO is incredibly grateful to FCA US and the FCA Foundation for their support in helping us reach veterans of the U.S. armed forces and their families across southeastern Michigan,” said Jill Elder, Vice President and Chief Development Officer, Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

“The DSO is committed to providing opportunities for all people to experience their world through music, and we look forward to welcoming these heroes to Orchestra Hall later this season.”


This is such a kind gesture for The FCA Foundation and Detroit Symphony Orchestra! As an Army veteran wife, it truly makes me happy to hear of both organizations showing support for military veterans.


And to all of our military veterans, thank you for your great service!
