To expand the audience for chamber music through a program where the city's architecturally and historically significant locations are transformed into musical performance spaces
To expand the audience for chamber music, this new program selects architecturally or historically significant locations in the city and reinvents them as musical performance spaces. Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings musicians will then create programs that complement and illuminate the venue. For example, a performance at the old Ford Piquette Plant might feature music written during the Model T era. At the same time, academics are invited to talk about the building’s place in Detroit history, deepening the impact on the music performed. With challenge funds, Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings will expand the breadth of the series.
