The Dequindre Cut will be filled with the sounds of some of Metro Detroit’s most talented entertainers this summer and fall as the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy kicks off its Campbell Terrace Performance Series with regularly scheduled programming beginning Wednesday, June 6, 2018.

The Campbell Terrace is a small-scale outdoor performance venue that features a covered stage, tiered concrete walls for seating and lush landscaping.  It is located at the base of the Lafayette Street ramp to the Dequindre Cut between Orleans and St. Aubin Streets.  The Terrace was commissioned by a $1 million gift from the McGregor Fund to honor the legacy of David Campbell, its former president who passed away in 2014.  Campbell was also a founding member of the Conservancy’s board, as well as an avid supporter of arts and culture.

Last spring, the Conservancy reached out to local individuals and organizations interested in performing at the Campbell Terrace.  Eight artists out of nearly 90 applicants were selected to be a part of the inaugural season of the performance series.  The first group to perform was the Matrix Theater Company in early June.

Numerous music genres will be represented this season, including indie rock, rhythm and blues, big band jazz, hip hop and steel pan.  Musicians aren’t the only performers who will have a turn on the Campbell Terrace stage.  A break dance performance occurred last September.
