Forging connections between Detroit artists, community members, and youth, Together We Sound uses new music to bring people together. With 15 events over two weeks, the new festival will be held at venues in Detroit, Hamtramck, and Ann Arbor May 27 through June 9.
Created by the seven-time national prize-winning chamber ensemble, the Akropolis Reed Quintet, Together We Sound is a one-of-a-kind contemporary music festival that includes three lunchtime workplace concerts, six K-12 school presentations, one side-by-side student concert with an Akropolis concerto, two pop-up events in public spaces, and three evening concerts at neighborhood venues featuring world premieres by Akropolis in collaboration with local and national artists.
