Theater · Concert / Show
Meadow Brook Amphitheatre, located on the campus of Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, opened in 1964 on property originally owned by automotive industry pioneer John F. Dodge and donated by his widow Matilda Dodge Wilson.

In its first four seasons, Meadow Brook was the exclusive summer residence of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra until the festival’s schedule was broadened in 1968 to include ballet. By the early 1970s, rock and pop concerts were added to the venue’s summer lineup.

313 Presents recently assumed management, marketing and booking of the 7,700-capacity amphitheatre, as part of an operational and management agreement with Oakland University.

Meadow Brook’s traditional and eclectic programming has flourished over the years and recently it has become a destination for music’s biggest emerging stars. Today, concerts of all genres highlight and showcase the venue’s unique ambiance and intimate setting.

  • Wow! We saw their version of A Christmas Carol and it was the best I ever saw. It was our first time at Meadow Brook Theatre and we were very impressed with everything. The set was remarkable. The cast was super. All seats seemed to have a great view. Even the sound was better than all other theatres I've been to. If the seats allowed more arm room I would give them 5++++ stars.
  • My family and I have been to many Christmas concerts. Got to be honest, we weren’t expecting much from this show, due to it being a smaller location. Typically, we go to the Fox theater,or somewhere downtown. Therefore, When we arrived here we thought the show wouldn’t be as much due to it being a smaller location. However, we were completely blown away! This was by far the best show we’ve been to! I highly recommend taking your family to see the Scrooge! If we didn’t go so late in the season, we would’ve went again!!
