Creating Music Together: DETROIT

Date: August 26, 2017
Time: 9:30 am

Light Box is excited to partner with Music for Contemplation to produce this day-long composition workshop for all!

The workshop includes silence, vocal meditations, and basic exercises to create music together. Over the course of the day, the group will compose and rehearse new music and present it at a public concert in the evening. No prior experience necessary — suitable for artists, poets, dancers, programmers, trained musicians and music lovers with no training whatsoever!

Workshop begins at 9:30 am. Public performance at 8:05 pm. Read about past workshops below. Everyone is welcome to join the concert which will include music coming into the world for the first time, created over the course of the day by workshop participants.

To apply for the workshop, email, tell us who you are and why you want to join.


Requested tuition $40 (no one turned away for lack of funds)
Suggested audience donation for the evening concert $10
