Dave Bennet Clarinetist will be preforming Gershwin, Goodwin and more with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra on the historic and elegant grounds of the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House. The two night concert series, led by conductor Edwin Outwater, begins on Friday, July 12 at 8 p.m. with “The Golden Age of Swing”.

Michigan clarinetist Dave Bennett is a totally self-taught musician who brings to life the classic sound and music of Benny Goodman (1909-1986) with incredible technique, style and beauty of tone. Bennett resides in Waterford and began playing at age 10 on a clarinet given to him by his grandparents. He then taught himself how to play Goodman songs by ear, listening to a tape given to him by his grandfather.

He began touring his Tribute to Benny Goodman combo in 2005 and has now performed in over 35 States and Canada and has appeared with 30 orchestras.
