DETROIT (WWJ) – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra says its offices are closed and its website is down Monday, following Sunday’s underground explosion that damaged the basement of Orchestra Hall.

A spokesperson for DTE Energy said  the explosion was triggered by a gas and electrical problem. The blast blew off several manhole covers near the DSO.

No one was injured. There was some damage in a basement room of Orchestra Hall, according to a Detroit fire official.

The “Mondays at the Max with Wayne State” performance set for Monday evening has been postponed.
