150 Years of Detroit Music
Many of us have had the opportunity to come of age during a glorious time of music development. For me, growing up in Detroit in the 60s, I was able to go to the marvelous “Motortown” Review at the Fox Theater where I was able to see in one amazing show the Marvelettes, the Supremes, the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, The Miracles and Marvin Gaye.
Now, you will have the opportunity to learn about and experience the Detroit people and places that made history by making music and in doing so, inspired the world. Jeanette Pierce of the Detroit Experience Factory, Mike Cole of Bank of Ann Arbor, Mike Dergis of Sigrid Solutions and Paul Reiser of TechTown, and Leaders Connect Detroit will present via zoom “150 Years of Detroit Music: A Virtual Tour.”
Here are the details of the program we will present as a virtual tour on March 23.
