IVC Detroit’s World Music Celebration on April 7th at Fishbone’s in Greektown featuring Detroit musical artist & composer Sean Blackman was a unique event attended by a diverse audience of young professionals and veteran IVC Detroit supporters. They enjoyed an eclectic mix of music from around the world specifically Armenia, Brazil, West Africa and Detroit Jazz and Rock& Roll. Host Committee member Bernadette Lussier comments “The World Music Celebration was a wonderful success. Thanks to Chairs Steven Rybicki & Ellena Gatzaros and their Committees for all of their hard work. It really paid off. We had such a wonderful turnout of new friends and faces that will sure to be interested in joining IVC and/or attending our events.” IVC Detroit event supporters enjoyed the Concert, cocktails and hearty Fishbone appetizers in a bistro setting affording opportunities for networking and even dancing to the sounds of Senegal. Guests followed the lead of longtime supporter Sophia Holley Ellis along with Sandra Richardson-Smith (in her African headdress) as they encouraged young professional Marie Alexander to get up and dance during the evening’s festivities. The success of the event was also due to the generous sponsorships: Greektown Casino-Hotel, Detroit Medical Center (DMC), Mango Language Services, Charter One Bank, Compuware, Erick Reickert & Lady Susan Willis-Reickert, La Fontaine Import Center, DTE Energy, Infinity & Ovation Yacht Charters, Fishbone’s and Styleline Magazine.
