DSO musicians will perform at the Clark Park Culture & Arts Festival on July 9 and the Community Arts and Music Festival in Chandler Park on July 16. Musicians also will perform at the Northwest Goldberg Cares Spotlight Park Music in the Park on July 30.
The concerts are a part of DSO’s commitment to strengthening the growth and well-being of the City of Detroit through the Detroit Neighborhood Initiative, part of a larger Detroit Strategy to invest in and build relationships with Detroit residents.
The DSO Detroit Neighborhood Initiative is a community-driven process of dialogue and planning, resulting in cultural partnerships that enrich neighborhoods and musical experiences that align with the priorities of Detroit residents. Since spring of 2021, the DSO has been listening and co-creating with partners and community members in Southwest Detroit, Chandler Park, Dexter-Linwood and Northwest Goldberg.
The DSO has met with more than 100 community-serving organizations in Detroit, held 20 listening sessions with Detroit residents and held seven Neighborhood Musical Experiences in Chandler Park, Southwest Detroit, Dexter-Linwood, and Northwest Detroit. Musicians have engaged with more than 3,000 community members since March 2021.
These respectful, responsive Detroit Musical Experiences have been made possible through the support of the General Motors Corporation and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
