In 2012, eight amateur wind players met informally in Northville with the purpose of performing the great literature for Harmonie, or wind band, from the Viennese Classical period. The players are all experienced performers on their respective instruments and perform in various community orchestras and bands. Harmonie Détroit made its debut at the Novi Public Library on April 29th, 2015.
Conductor Paul F. DeRubeis is a retired band director of the Bloomfield Hills Public Schools. Currently he is the director of the Rochester Community Band.
The members are: Mark Bedard and Regina Brodersen, oboe
Skip Bedard and Michael Chiumento, clarinet
Kenneth Jones and Donald Lauter, horn
Christopher Brodersen and Kristi Henry, bassoon
