Greetings from the desk of Vince Paul

President and Artistic Director

Is there any place more exciting than downtown Detroit these days? The energy, the investment, the enthusiasm…this city is determined to take its place at the top of the world again and we couldn’t be more excited to be in the middle of it all.

Keep an eye on the big changes planned for the Paradise Valley District just to our west, as coordinated development promises to return the cultural and historical vibrance of the pre-highway days. And then stay tuned some more, because the rest of the story is still being written…

My own Music Hall story marks a 10-year anniversary this month. It feels like the blink of eye (well, a lot of the time!) and I couldn’t be more excited to get started on the next decade. Join us on the 1st for a celebration concert with The Hot Sardines, who bring their uniquely current twist to vintage 20th c. jazz standards, showcasing their new album, ‘French Fries & Champagne’.

Main Stage presentations wrap up on the 1st as well, with the students of Complexions Contemporary Dance’s summer intensive, showing just how much can be accomplished in two short weeks. Then there’s yoga on the roof and lots of great music in the cool Jazz Café throughout the hot summer months.

Keep up with us on our social channelson Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

As always, "I'll see you downtown"
