2024 Gala

We heard it through the grapevine that two legendary Motown groups are coming together for the Great Lakes Center for the Arts for the 2024 Gala

The Sounds of Motor City will feature Motown legends, The Temptations, and The Four Tops. Backed by a tight rhythm section and blazing brass ensemble, these legendary supergroups will bring their signature sound to the party of the season – the 2024 Annual Gala. Enjoy an unforgettable evening featuring cocktails, a VIP dinner with a live auction, and American music royalty The Temptations and The Four Tops - LIVE in concert. After the show, guests are encouraged to head upstairs to the Rooftop Afterparty to dance the night away under the stars and enjoy tasty, well-crafted cocktails and i nspired bites.

This annual fundraiser benefits the mission of the Great Lakes Center for the Arts – to inspire, entertain, educate, and serve all in Northern Michigan year-round by presenting exceptional experiences across the full spectrum of the performing arts and offering impactful educational opportunities.
