Crescendo Detroit’s  dream is to create a revolution in after-school programming with music and dance at its core. We envision a lush and healthy “tree” of music education throughout the City of Detroit, with thousands of students engaged in intensive music and dance education that helps to develop within them the grit, dedication and commitment to excellence derived from a strong sense of self confidence and an application of personal discipline and rigor.

Crescendo Detroit is committed to creating a system of centers throughout the city that are easily accessible to all students. Each center will have a dance company, concert band, jazz band orchestra, and choir culminating annually with a Crescendo system wide Fine Arts Extravaganza with guest conductors and guest artists from around the world.
