the Detroit REVIVAL Project will bring together local artists to collaborate in a shared performance space in order to build a stronger arts community in Detroit.
ConTempus Initiative is a Mid-Michigan based contemporary music ensemble. ConTempus musicians are committed to finding a balance between standard repertoire and newly commissioned works to present performances that connect with today’s audiences. Since its founding in 2014, ConTempus Initiative has established an annual collaboration with ArtLab J and professional and student composers to present Detroit REVIVAL Project performances. Drawing on the member's wide-ranging careers as performers, composers, educators, and scholars, ConTempus' principal activities include commissioning new works, discovering unpublished works by living composers, collaborating with other forms of art, and presenting educational workshops and community outreach.
