UMS’s Arts Roundup: September 3

By Susie Bozell Craig

Many members of the UMS staff keep a watchful eye on local and national media for news about artists on our season, pressing arts issues, and more. We thought we’d pull together a list of interesting stories each week and share them with you. Welcome to UMS’s Arts Round-up, a weekly collection of arts news, including national issues, artist updates, local shout-outs, and a link or two just for fun. If you come across something interesting in your own reading, please feel free to share!

Arts Issues

  • “Soundcheck Smackdown” looks at the impact and value of live cinema broadcasts.
  • The New York Times asks, “Does music make you exercise harder?”

Artist Updates

Local Shout-Outs

  • No Labor Day Weekend plans? Head downtown to the 2010 Detroit International Jazz Festival.

Just For Fun

  • Graduating from Kindergarten hardly an accomplishment for this 6-year-old piano prodigy.
  • Need to kickstart your workday? Flashmob-turned-flashdance got things jumping at Liverpool Station.


Susie is celebrating the start of her 10th season at UMS, where she currently manages UMS’s Corporate Partnerships.
