ABOUT SENSATIONAL SUNDAYS:
People for Palmer Park (PFPP) was awarded a $30,000 NeighborHUB Grant from the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce and General Motors to continue to transform the Log Cabin into a community center for creativity, imagination and engagement.
“Earth Tones connects music-making and the sounds of nature through artistic improvisation and intuition, and active listening. Each concert features two ensembles – a youth-led or emerging group and a more established jazz or improvisational group,” said Joseph Darling, a music curator who conceived the series and is a PFPP board member.
UPCOMING PERFORMANCES IN THE SERIES:
The grant will allow the PFPP Arts & Culture Committee to present free family-friendly programs with gifted Detroit musicians, visual artists, poets, and storytellers and outfit the Log Cabin for art shows, concerts and other cultural activities. The committee is also selecting local arts and culture groups to engage and present through its innovative Community Arts micro-grant competition.
Join us throughout the summer for these Arts & Culture Events for the whole family at Detroit's historic Palmer Park. Bring a blanket, lawn chairs and picnics for afternoons (thru sunsets) of art, music and creative fun, food trucks, popups and more!
