Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit celebrates its 20th anniversary of inspiring and transforming young artists, 95% of whom graduate high school and go on to college, with a springtime concert that showcases the troupe’s voluminous vocal range. Ears bathe in soaring measures from within the beautiful neoclassical auditorium, famed for its vaulted gallery, terra cotta tiles, and seats affixed with enticing red Do Not Press buttons. On stage, Mosaic songbirds swoop gracefully through Act One of the performance, which includes their signature blend of classical, spiritual, and global arrangements. After a brief intermission grants guests a chance to stretch their legs or compare 40-yard-dash times in the parking lot, the ensemble returns to the spotlight with a fully charged stock of some of pop music’s biggest hits. Attendees will leave the show swelled with feel-good vibes from Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit’s inspiring mission to create promising futures for the community’s young artists.
Detroit Institute of Arts
The Detroit Institute of Arts takes the “s” at the end of its name seriously. The immense Beaux Arts building on Woodward Avenue isn’t only a setting for a top-tier collection of visual works that include Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry frescoes, a van Gogh self-portrait, and ancient sculptures from Africa and Asia. It also opens the doors of its lecture halls, event spaces, and auditoriums for craft workshops, wide-ranging talks from historians and people who know how to draw really good cubes, film, and music. The latter two art forms find a home in the Detroit Film Theatre, a gilded, neoclassical auditorium that preserves a sense of coziness amid the grandeur.
