Cranbrook Music Guild Tickets for the 2014-2015 Season now on Sale.
Cranbrook Music Guild
The Cranbrook Music Guild was created in 1951 by Henry Scripps Booth, son of George and Ellen Scripps Booth to celebrate the art of music. What started as a concept to "do something musical" and "to involve and take advantage of the incomparable setting and facilities of Cranbrook", has morphed into a "must attend" event, celebrating the very best in Chamber music. Our five concert series, performed in Christ Church Cranbrook, hosts musicians from around the globe. The Cranbrook Music Guild also encourages the development of young performers with a concert featuring a selected artist from the University of Michigan's School of Music.
Afterglows are held in the beautiful Guild Hall of the church, where audience members and artists can meet and mingle. .
