Detroit has a success story built in steel, sweat, and sounds of changing industry. These sounds have made their way into our consciousness, been set to beats, plugged into melodies and inspired lyrics building new genres and improving others. Music is Life. Detroit is Music. Welcome to MusicTown Detroit – an experience built for musicians (national and local), aspiring artists, and everyone else who sings in their car or hums at their desk. A place with live broadcasts, recording studios, places to learn, and intimate performance spaces. In the coming weeks, we will be working with students in surrounding schools, developing artists, and industry professionals as we strive to become a space for exchanging history and ideas as well as being entertained.
None of this can be done alone so we’ve reached out to some incredible partners. Here’s just a little bit about who they are:
Michigan State University Community Music School
Children’s Hospital Foundation of Michigan
