Coming Home to Music is a not-for-profit house concert series whose goal is to launch a series of small concerts featuring a variety of musical performers rotating through Detroit homes. A concert in a home strips away the impersonal and allows musicians, attendees and homeowners an opportunity to enjoy a genuine interaction. It creates an intimate yet profoundly engaging musical experience that no other concert venue can provide. Coming Home to Music was selected in 2013 as a Knight Arts Challenge grant award winner that would “engage and enrich the community through the arts.” Coming Home to Music is one of only 56 projects to be awarded a prestigious Knight Arts Challenge matching grant in Detroit – out of 1,400 applicants! Knight Foundation leaders said CHTM fit its profile of a project that would benefit the city of Detroit. They saw the potential of a small project yielding big results. The house concert series will begin in October and will continue with concerts throughout the year. While the concert series strives for one featured house concert each month, another goal of CHTM is to connect homeowners with musicians at any...Read More

The goal of Coming Home to Music is To create an intimate yet profoundly engaging musical experience, by launching a series of small concerts rotating through Detroit homes.
Coming Home to Music is a not-for-profit house concert series whose goal is to launch a series of small concerts featuring a variety of musical performers rotating through Detroit homes. A concert in a home strips away the impersonal and allows musicians, attendees and homeowners an opportunity to enjoy a genuine interaction. It creates an intimate yet profoundly engaging musical experience that no other concert venue can provide.
A house concert is just as it sounds -a concert in a house. Long before there were concert halls, people were enjoying live music in private homes.
From chamber music of the 16th century to bluegrass and jazz of later years, the most traditional musical performances were in small, intimate spaces.
In recent years, this type of musical performance has become known as a house concert, and the trend has been gaining exponentially in popularity.
Coming Home to Music House Concert Series Kick-off concert tomorrow in Detroit’s beautiful Rosedale neighborhood features singer/songwriter Tracy Kash. (vocals, flute, piano, tunes) and Pat Shanley (guitar and vocals) performing as a duo! Tracy’s unique brand of jazz and jazz-influenced rock/pop is a must-hear, and we’re thrilled to feature her in our first event of the series.
Nearly a year into this adventure called Coming Home to Music, we’re excited to see the pieces coming together. And we’re really thrilled to be sharing our vision of creating an intimate, engaging series of concerts that rotate through the homes of Detroit and surrounding area, and feature diverse artists from this musically rich city and beyond.
