Motown Music Celebration: Virtual Presentation

Join us on Saturday, June 13th, at 1:30 p.m. for a virtual presentation

Celebrate African-American Music Appreciation Month with a musical journey to the Motor City. In Detroit in the 1960′s Motown Records produced hits as efficiently as the Ford Motor Company produced automobiles – 110 Top Ten hits to be exact! It was the “Sound of Young America” sung by performers like The Supremes, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. Using audio and visual content we’ll trace the amazing musical journey from the power soul of “Dancing in The Streets” and “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” to the psychedelic soul of “Cloud Nine” and “What’s Going On” to the pop soul of The Jackson 5. Timeless music that moved us then and moves us now.

To join this presentation, you can use either the link or phone number below:
