“Come April, the sound of a horn once again will reverberate through Detroit's historic Piquette Avenue Plant. The Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings plans to break from its routine of performing at suburban churches with a new series beginning April 1 at the birthplace of Henry Ford's Model T.” “The Detroit Chamber Winds plans one concert as part of the series this year and two additional performances at yet-to-be-determined sites in the coming year.”

“The Piquette Plant performance will include music specially programmed for the building and the early 1900s when the plant hummed with production of the first Ford Motor Co. vehicles, and later the Studebaker Corp. Detroit Chamber Winds trombonist David Jackson will perform contemporary composer Adolphus Hailstork's 'John Henry's Big' (Man vs. Machine), accompanied by a pianist. A University of Michigan music professor, Jackson will bring some of his music students to perform with Detroit Chamber Winds musicians.”
