Brightmoor

Brightmoor is a musical journey through the rise and fall of one of America's hardest hit neighborhoods, located in the northwest corner of Detroit.

The piece spans a timeline of over one hundred years, beginning when Brightmoor was a flourishing community-hailed as an exemplary of the American dream-to the present day, when almost three quarters of the homes are vacant or burned down, and many streets go on for miles without a single occupied building.
