TO BE OR NOT TO BE

 

2:00 p.m. – Come early to receive a history and tour of the Players Club Playhouse.

DCWS Trombonist David Jackson set the stage for Structurally Sound in 2014, when he lead the first-ever series concert at the Ford Piquette Plant. He returns to mark the exciting fifth anniversary of the program with a multidisciplinary exploration of The Players Club. With help from Detroit Public Theatre and his University of Michigan trombone choir, Jackson presents a diverse and engaging program where classical music and theatre act together to illustrate the history of this iconic performance space.
