According to the website, “This unique, collaborative program will be a celebration of the history, present, and future of Detroit through great choral music. It will include an exciting variety of outstanding music that ranges from the jazz, French, and African-American choral traditions of Detroit to well-regarded choral music by Detroit-area composers; Eric Whitacre’s beloved Hebrew Love Songs will be featured.”
