MIKE MICHELON

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR,
ANN ARBOR SUMMER FESTIVAL

IT'S THE BEST PART OF SUMMER IN ANN ARBOR.

Welcome to the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, a community celebration where national and international artists join regional performers and local partners to transform our city into a vibrant, creative playground for nearly a month each summer.

In this 35th anniversary year and my first as director, we open our season with the outstanding Ani DiFranco. What follows is three-and- a-half weeks of exciting activities, from impressive, large-scale outdoor spectacles, to the best of the local music scene alongside breakout national talents, to an immersive theatrical experience called At The Illusionist’s Table.

Whether you come to see a world-class show at Power Center, join us
for a taste of great local food and some dancing, or bike in to treat your family to a wonderful night celebrating community and the warm weather, the festival is our “town square” for the summer. It’s where neighbors, families, and friends old and new come together to celebrate the power of the arts to transform community.

We invite you to this gathering place, where performance and ideas connect us to each other. We want you to be inspired, uplifted, and entertained. Thank you for supporting our efforts every night you attend.

SCOTT BRADLEE’S POSTMODERN JUKEBOX

Pop | Rock | Vocal

Since when was Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” about an upright bass fiddle? At what point did Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop” evolve into a ‘20s hot jazz tune in spats and sequins? It’s all part of the saucy, vintage nouveau world of Postmodern Jukebox. From their YouTube presence of 912 million views to this Ann Arbor début, this playful revue dips into nostalgia with a dozen vocalists and a mini-orchestra, dressing up an unparalleled playlist of the greatest songs of modern pop in 20th-century forms.

EVOLVING INTO A ZERO-WASTE EVENT IN THREE TO FIVE YEARS

As a lively outdoor gathering with the performing arts at its core, connecting the community to the environment is one of Ann Arbor Summer Festival’s leading directives. Nature frames over 80% of A2SF programming. Whether it’s an aerialist employing a blue-sky backdrop or magnolia trees shading a large spectacle along Ingalls Mall, nature is an extraordinary venue.

The Ann Arbor Summer Festival is one of the largest public arts gatherings in the state of Michigan, with an estimated economic impact of $3.5 million annually. Transforming a gathering of this scale into a zero-waste event demonstrates a major commitment to improving the environment by the festival, Toyota, and these sustainability partners.
