Detroit has one of the greatest musical heritages of any city in the world. And a local conference is intent on preserving it.
Hosted by the Detroit Sound Conservancy
(DSC) and presented by Lawrence Technological University, the 3rd Annual Music Conference
will convene people integral to music preservation for the purpose of discussing how to harness the city's musical legacy.
The conference, which takes place on October 15, will have panels, a speech from Soul music legend Melvin Davis, as well as a remembrance of James T. Jenkins, founder of the Graystone International Jazz Museum and Hall of Fame, who would have turned 100 this year.
The conference will be held at the Detroit Center for Design & Technology
"The DCDT prides itself on aligning with local initiatives, programs and organizations who look to foster and expand the role that art and design play among the local community, growing industry and educational pedagogy," says Karl Daubmann, DCDT interim executive director. "With the DSC's history of working towards increased awareness of Detroit’s musical heritage, along with their efforts in advocacy, preservation and education in the local community, the DCDT is proud to support our neighborhood partner in their endeavors to reinvigorate Detroit's ever present musical culture."
The DSC's 3rd Annual Music Conference takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 15 at the Detroit Center for Design & Technology. For more information on the conference schedule or to RSVP, click here.
