It’s July, so our Main Stage gets pretty quiet, but the Complexions Detroit Summer Intensive Students will light things up on Friday 7/3. Each year, we see amazing performances that look like they took 2 months to prepare rather than 2 weeks – a testament to the incredible talent of both the faculty and the students.
And our Jazz Café and 3Fifty Terrace stages are as hot as ever.
Detroit’s favorite rooftop deck has a full schedule of great music, and it sounds sooooo great with the soft summer breeze blowing and the city humming below. MOVIE SUNDAYS start this month and continue through September, with a great mix of favorites and newer films. And there’s not a better spot to enjoy the Detroit Tigers’ fireworks, so make your plans to be at 3Fifty Terrace on July 3, July 17, and August 8.
The Café has a full month of our incredible hometown talent, not just because we are committed to feeding the pipeline of artists who go on to entertain the whole world, but because these artists are simply great and we just love to listen to them. Check out the husband-and-wife team called The Blueflowers on 7/9, Detroit original Jarrod Champion on the 10th
, Sky Covington on the 17th
, Alise King on the 24th
…we could go on and on because this city’s talent is just that huge.
We’re in the final stages of renovating our historic canopy to its original grace and elegance, thanks in part to a grant from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and the National Endowment for the Arts. MDOT is also wrapping up its streetscape beautification project and the Entertainment District has never looked better.
As always, "I'll see you downtown"
