Crescendo Detroit is a nonprofit created with the foundation of transforming the lives of youth, ages 5-18, in the Metro Detroit neighborhoods by developing intense instrumental music, vocal music, and dance programs that promote artistic excellence and character building.

The Carr Center is devoted to the preservation, presentation, promotion, and development of the African and African American cultural arts traditions within our multicultural community.
