Who We Are
Alarmed by the collective loss of creative voices, musical recordings, and cultural spaces, Detroit Sound Conservancy was established in 2012 to create programs and provide leadership in the preservation of musical heritage in a spirit of partnership and celebration. Put simply, we tell Detroit’s story through the experience of music. Our focus is not on any genre of music but instead on music as the quintessential Detroit story. Our long range vision is to enhance Detroiters’ quality of life through preservation, education, performance, and placekeeping in The Detroit Sound Center at The Legendary Blue Bird Inn. Our programming includes the Club Heaven Sound System and Blue Bird Inn Stage. Our collections include the Graystone International Jazz Museum and Hall of Fame as well as thousands of additional artifacts, recordings, manuscripts, and oral histories.
