Produced by the Arab American National Museum (AANM) with its partners Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO), Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA), Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, ACCESS and University of Michigan-Detroit Center, Concert of Colors is a highly anticipated and beloved summer event and one of few remaining free-admission music festivals in the city.
Amplifying the festivities for the 25th birthday bash are new venues Third Man Records, Michigan Science Center and Detroit Historical Museum. Third Man Records will kick off the festival on the evening of Wednesday, July 12, 2017, while the DIA teams up with The Wright Museum and Michigan Science Center for a lively outdoor presentation on Friday, July 14, 2017. Detroit Historical Museum is set to host an after party that evening.
The five-day indoor/outdoor event has always sought to unite the region’s diverse communities and ethnic groups by presenting global music acts. Against the backdrop of today’s political climate of fear and division, this year’s festival takes on greatly increased significance in its effort to unite, not divide, through the power of music.
