Detroit Sound Conservancy presents a token of deep appreciation to those who give selflessly of something more precious than gold – their time and help. 2022 is the inaugural year of these awards. 

Detroit Sound Conservancy cannot function without the love made visible of our special volunteers. These are the people who show up time after time and help DSC create the daily framework and organization of content that is making us into a true community partner. 

We celebrate their work, authenticity, passion, and their love – and we love you right back!! So help us celebrate our wonderful Detroit Sound Conservancy Volunteers – and we have four categories in which each of our honorees SHINE:

Sonic Communicator Award – Joe Zimmer – for social media and communications. 

Reach For Heaven Award – James Allen – for outstanding work to advocate for and preserve the legacy of the Club Heaven community. 

#WorkinOnIt Award – Kathy and Stephen Bergman – for showing up and turning out for our events and programs. 

Karen Hudson Samuels Memorial Archiving Award – Robert Browning, Chris Bloodworth – for outstanding work preserving detroit music history through the archival process. 

And to all those volunteers who have helped throughout the year, THANK YOU!
