Our Past and Present
Since Matilda Dodge Wilson opened Music Hall’s doors in 1928, our intimate downtown venue has been a significant player in Detroit’s performing arts sector. As the last remaining legitimate stage theatre, Music Hall is the only Detroit venue built for the primary purpose of presenting live performances. We have been home to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Michigan Opera Theatre, one of the nation's first Cinerama screens, and a wide variety of quality performances that embody the diverse cultures of the world. We are currently home to the newly established Jazz Cafe.
