Starr Summer Youth Festival Honors Marcus Belgrave

Friday, August 8, 2014

If you’re looking for entertainment around town this weekend, you’ll have a special opportunity. The first Starr Summer Youth Festival takes place in Detroit on Sunday.

The festival, featuring young artists, is being pulled together by Starr Commonwealth, an organization that works with troubled youth.

WDET’s Jerome Vaughn sat down with festival organizer John Hollingsworth and Cecelia Sharpe, who’s the founder of the Urban Stringz II Youth Ensemble, to talk about the event...including a special honor for Detroit jazz legend Marcus Belgrave.

The festival takes place from 2 until 6 Sunday afternoon in Detroit’s Paradise Valley Park.
