"In Transit ~ Detroit is set in the spirit and celebration of our diverse Detroit and how we can shine a light on inclusion through the performing arts."
With each concert, a different culture's music and dance is integrated with Detroit's jazz, funk, electronic, rock and soul.
We are committed to providing public platforms - that support international performers - both established and emerging artists - in comfortable and safe family atmospheres - that are well publicized - that encourage social awareness and dedication to equality - and is committed to the building of a culturally inclusive community. Come see and hear the best Detroit has to offer!
“The audiences fill the dance floor… these world-fusion concerts are wonderfully vibrant, festive and fun for everyone!”
