Detroit Performs LIVE - TONIGHT at The Fillmore
Can’t Make It? Watch The Live Stream from 7:30 – 9:30 P.M. at

If you are not already headed downtown to attend Detroit Performs LIVE at The Fillmore, but still want to be a part of this amazing event, we have you covered. Beginning at 7:30 P.M., we will be live streaming the concert, beginning with a red carpet preview and concluding with a special MOTOWN LEGEND you definitely do not want to miss. How can you watch, you ask? By visiting, of course!

Hosted by popular jazz flutist Alexander Zonjic, who will also serve as music director, the event will showcase beloved Detroit stars such as Jessica Hernandez, Bettye LaVette and Ty Stone, as well as a mix of vocalists, instrumentalists and musicians and some PBS favorites, such as ROXANNA and Italian tenor, Pasquale Esposito—all live on stage. In addition, an interactive gallery will bring together some of Detroit’s best established and emerging artists in various art forms, such as sculpting, photography, drawing, and more, including visual artists Dominic Pangborn and Pete Coe, photographer Amy Sacka, sculptor Austen Brantley, as well as the Vision Male Vocal Ensemble from the Detroit School of Arts.

Detroit Performs Live is much more than a concert; it’s the story of Detroit’s vibrant cultural mix, and of Detroit Public TV’s power to bring it all together in the heart of downtown, thanks to the support of funders like the MASCO Corporation, IXITI, and others and of partners like YOU. I look forward to sharing this incredible night with you.

The fun begins at 7:30 P.M., and we encourage everyone to follow us on Twitter (@detroitperforms) for live updates from The Fillmore.
