Detroit Music Weekend 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 Performing Arts, R&B Music Hall of Fame and over 40 arts organizations to create this annual destination weekend in Detroit.

Detroit Music Weekend commissions, produce and presents 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.

For the 2017 Inaugural weekend, the Board of Trustees and staff of Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts served as the producing entity. This is a familiar structure to Music Hall’s production of the Detroit Jazz Festival from 1991-2005.

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.
