SOUND IT OUT
Not our logo, but we like these.
If you went anywhere in the world, Melbourne, Namibia, Estonia, China...people know about Detroit music. It's reverence runs deep and championed in almost every country on earth. Our Sound It Out program is meant to grow, sustain, and preserve Detroit music. Over time, you will see the SIO program initiatives address the past, present, and future of Detroit music. A great example is our Young Lions Detroit division, meant to connect young adults to jazz in a strategic and modern fashion.
Detroit's music is an asset that has not been fully leveraged here, and economically it can embolden our music community. We need to grow our industry so more businesses can take more risks. We need to start to move boundaries of what we thought we could accomplish here. We need to remove them.
We need to remove them, and we need your help in doing so. Many understand the potential of Detroit's music community. There are power in numbers, friends. If you would like to get involved, please email info@ForardArtsDetroit.org, and let's work together to reach our potential. Detroit is America's greatest music city.
