Bass Performance Hall


From 1961 to 1971, Motown Records had more than 100 hits in the top 10 hits. That kind of success didn't come by accident — founder Berry Gordy Jr. had a true knack for identifying soul artists with a mainstream pop appeal who would flip the music world on its head. Don't miss the FWSO's homage to this era of ear-grabbing hooks and meaningful melodies as the orchestra performs hits by Marvin Gaye, The Four Tops, Michael Jackson, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, and more.
