Michigan Philhrmonic Celebrates Culture Week!
April 27 - May 5, 2013

The first week of May each year has been designated as Canton Culture Week - celebrating the many different ethnic cultures which make up the community.

Each year the celebration kicks off with the Student Art School featuring artwork from all 25 schools in the Plymouth Canton School District.  This incredible show features nearly 1000 works by students from elementary - high school and showcases the budding artistic talents of these young people.

The Michigan Philharmonic Youth Orchestra performance follows each year at the Village Theater featuring over 85 students in 4 different levels performing music from the classics to Bollywood!

The Michigan Philharmonic rounds out the week with a multi-cultural performance featuring music from many different ethnic traditions.  In the past music from Bollywood and China have been featured.  This year celebrates the music of Latin America with "Musica de las Americas" which features all Latino composers and includes youth strings players joining the orchestra on the last piece, De Colores, a beautiful Mexican Folk Song.

The Michigan Philharmonic values it's commitment to the diversity and multi-cultural programming and features music by composers from the world over.
