Thank you, DSC supporters – and Happy New Year!

On behalf of the Detroit Sound Conservancy staff and board members, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for continually supporting our mission. It's thanks to your support that we continued to build long-term sustainability, and were able to provide consistent services to our patrons this past year.

We thank you especially for supporting the Blue Bird Inn, as we work to rehabilitate the historic building into a music venue, community space and music archive for Detroiters and the world. In a city rife with disinvestment and systemic racism, we are proud to help give life to this monument to Black culture and American music history. We are looking forward to some exciting milestones at The Bird in 2022.

This work is only beginning and if you haven't already, I encourage you to follow us @detroitsound. If you feel moved, become a monthly supporter on Patreon, or make a year-end gift via Paypal.

Please take care and stay safe through the New Year and beyond. 

In Sonic Solidarity,
Michelle Jahra McKinney 
Executive Director of Detroit Sound Conservancy
