Concert of Colors
Started back in 1993, Concert of Colors was a modest, single day event with the simple goal of bringing the diversity of metro-Detroiters together through music from around the world. Today, it has become a part of the summertime traditions here in Detroit, with 2013 marking its 21st year. This year the concert series with travel to multiple venues in Midtown Detroit over 4 days, still with the same goal of celebrating the wealth of global diversity that fills metro-Detroit through music.
Is there a lonely instrument collecting dust in your closet, basement or attic? If so, you can give that instrument a brand new life in the hands of a deserving student.
A celebration of cultural diversity from around the world is going on in the Motor City. The 19th annual “Concert of Colors” kicks off Thursday at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History.
