to Music Hall Detroit

The Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts is a 1,731-seat theatre located in the city's entertainment district at 350 Madison Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. It was built in 1928 as the Wilson Theatre, designated a Michigan State Historic Site in 1976, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. The Music Hall Center is also home to the 100 seat Jazz Cafe and the 3 Fifty Terrace on the rooftop.

From the desk of Vince PauL:

Welcome to Theatre Season 2014-15! Typical for theatre people, we were ready for a break in June but can’t wait to get started again.

We have an exciting and diverse season in store for you – global music and dance, plays, musical theatre, jazz, and of course our Family Theatre series that introduces the small set to the joys of live performance. 

We’re thrilled to open the Jazz Café season with Dionne Farris & Russell Gunn on September 18 & 19. They have lit up that stage (and packed the room) a number of times already, and everyone who’s heard them says it’s one of those groups that just feels sooooo close to breaking through. Say you saw them here first!

Committed as ever to reflecting our regions’ rich diversity on our schedule, we open the Main Stage season on September 21 with the Senegal St. Joseph Gospel Choir. This group is a legend in Dakar, and the Senegalese & West African communities are already buzzing about the performance. It will be a Sunday afternoon of uplifting, joyous sound and we hope to introduce it to new ears as well as share it with all who already know and love this music.

3Fifty Terrace will continue through fall’s temperate months as downtown’s  rooftop capital of fun, and  Madison Avenue is getting its beauty on: a comprehensive streetscape overhaul that will give our downtown theatre district a gorgeous – and fitting - backdrop.

Active on social media, and interesting in partnering with us there? We can always use help spreading the word about our performances – contact julieg@musichall.org and let’s see what we can accomplish with a team of performing arts supporters!

Be sure to check construction updates (and as always, the football schedule) when planning your visits. Leave a little extra time, grab a bite to eat, and take a look at the dynamic changes happening in the neighborhood.

Until then…

 As always, "I'll see you downtown"
