In addition, we capped off our Corporate to Corner Detroit tour with a concert for the Detroit Winds and Strings. Thank you, CMA, for giving us this opportunity to bring music all over the city of Detroit!
Gave the offices at the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy a nice spice to their afternoon with some musical entertainment yesterday. Could not have done it without the support from Chamber Music America! All were appreciative.
