Cellist Robert DeMain performing Sept. 16

The Chamber Music Society of Detroit is opening its 2017-18 season with a top-flight musician who has strong Detroit roots, cellist Robert DeMain. This is also his first Detroit engagement in several years.

DeMain joined us on The Nine to give us a sample of his music and to tell us more about the show. You can hear from him in the video player above.

The show is Saturday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. at the Seligman Performing Arts Center in Beverly Hills. For more information, visit www.chambermusicdetroit.org.
