Founders of Detroit Music are partnering with the City of Detroit, Detroit City Council, Detroit Entertainment District Association, The Carr Center, Detroit Opera House, Motown Museum, Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts, R&B Music Hall of Fame and over 40 arts organizations to create an annual destination weekend in Detroit.
Detroit Music will commission, produce and present a full spectrum of Metro Detroit’s performing arts with showcase performances and concerts. The weekend will also be filled with cultural exhibits from Detroit’s finest not-for-profit museums and galleries in addition to highlighting all the new restaurants and retail in downtown Detroit.
Most importantly, the Detroit Music Weekend harnesses individual cultural organizations’ lists of supporters into a single, unified marketing approach – signaling the beginning of a new era for a collaborative Detroit. It’s time for a new narrative and a performing arts-based cooperative that unites the city and its suburbs with durable, productive working relationships.
