The 17th-annual festival boasts an impressive lineup of esteemed musicians and emerging artists performing work from the classical chamber repertoire as well as contemporary compositions. The festival’s theme this year is “The Poet Speaks,” and the June 12 performance features the music and poetry of Lera Auerbach in a piano, cello, and soprano trio, as well as the Haydn Piano Trio in C Major and Schumann’s Piano Quartet in E-flat Major. Forty-five minutes prior to the concert, which begins at 8 p.m., Auerbach will present an educational prelude about her music and writing.

Now in its 36th season raising curtains, roofs, and audiences to their feet, the BBSO revives classical works in "From The New World". Under the direction of Conductor Charles Greenwell, ranks of masterly string wizards stage four America-inspired compositions. After pieces by Aaron Copland and Alan Hovhaness, BBSO Young Artist String Competition winner Abigail Elder will take to the spotlight to perform her rendition of William Walton’s Concerto for Viola and Orchestra, mvt. 1 before the show caps off with Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony no. 9 in E Minor, op. 95, From the New World. The symphony is a welcome change of pace from the usual evening ritual of being serenaded by nieces and nephews doing the rodent-bones lawn-fire dance.

With an arsenal of informative magazines, elegant photographs, and illuminating documentaries, National Geographic has inspired planetary responsibility and natural wonderment for more than 120 years. Their latest filmed adventure, The Last Lions, ushers viewers into the wetlands of Botswana's Okavango Delta, where a lioness named Ma di Tau and her cubs fight for their survival. From fleeing raging fires and cub-killing rival prides to wading through crocodile-infested rivers and the supermarket at rush hour, this family suffers perils that leave audiences touched and awestruck. Crafted by award-winning filmmakers, Dereck and Beverly Joubert, and narrated by Jeremy Irons, The Last Lions aims to raise awareness of dwindling big-cat populations while sharing a compelling story of hope. The film is rated PG for depictions of the food-chain cycle without the accompaniment of an Elton John song.

Attendees of Maple Theater's classic film series, Secret Cinema, only know one thing when they enter the 300-seat auditorium: whether that night's feature was made before or after 1967. Otherwise, every selection is kept tightly under wraps by the series curator and the elves who run the projectors. The rest of the theater's lineup, however, is no secret. Throughout the week, Maple Theater specializes in the latest releases from the world of independent cinema, and features live music every weekend.

After the show, unwind in the theater's bar and WiFi lounge, where 12 taps offer local brews amid elegant drapes and chandelier strands. The bar pairs those pours?plus wines and cocktails?with original American tapas, as well as pretzel bread, veggie spring rolls, and waffle fries. Over at the Great Lakes coffee bar, meanwhile, vintage cameras and projectors surround visitors who stop in for their morning caffeine dose.

Once inside Barrio Tacos and Tequila, one is immediately struck by the smoky blues and warm blooms of color that fill the space. Frosted panes of azure glass line one side of the restaurant, and vibrant murals overtake the other walls—the ones that aren't stacked with shelves of tequila bottles, anyway. Orange lights from above branch into glowing tendrils, studding the navy ceiling with miniature suns and illuminating the mortar and pestle on each table. These points of color are akin to the sparks of flavor inside the menu: pleasantly surprising and, in the words of the Detroit News, "bright and well-balanced."

Executive chef Ryan Porter is the brain behind Barrio’s inventive recipes. As a teenager, Ryan cooked for his family every night, honing the creativity that would lead him through American-, Asian-, Italian-, and finally Mexican-themed kitchens. Today, he looks in all cardinal directions for culinary inspiration, fashioning platters in the style of Oaxaca and Acapulco, among other regions. He stuffs tortillas with nine types of taco fillings, including housemade chorizo. On the side, scoops of chili-dusted sweet corn transport guests to Mexico without forcing them to throw out the giant bottle of shampoo they keep hidden under their shirt.

She’s joined by a team of skilled instructors, who imbue their knowledge of Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Kundalini methods onto students of any age and ability. Daily classes range from gentle yoga for beginners and senior citizens to more advanced sessions that challenge students to go deeper into their postures. Prenatal classes also aim to lower stress and increase flexibility for moms-to-be, and the classes have been showcased on Fox 2 News. Along with teaching students the benefits of yoga, Karma Yoga's staff helps their community thrive by donating a percentage of each class rate to Detroit's Urban Farming.
