Quotes in Art Music & Theater

The arts make us feel, lack of the arts leave us cold.

Paintig Vincent van Gogh

Dancing helps us move more that just our feet, it lightens our hearts.


Music gives inner energy and outward richness.

If I can’t sing, I lose my voice and without a voice I lose my soul.

NEW YORK –  Blues Legend B.B. King

I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.  John Steinbeck


Teaching music is more than learning about notes, history and technique, it’s teaching the heart to soar above physical vision and view the cliffs of imagination and inspiration.

Art makes the stinging remarks of life less painful . . . it soothes and refreshes . . . .


Keeping music in the schools is not a priority . . . let’s make it one.

The Unsung Musicians of the Motown Empire

The FLYER T.U.M.o.t.ME


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                              Contact: Walter Duane Parham, II 248.705.7229 

                                       e-mail:  theparham@gmail.com





Detroit, Michigan – December 27, 2013.  Duane Parham, the man with the saxophone, laid it aside for a few minutes to investigate why horn players of the Motown Empire have been overlooked, underrated and maybe . . . forgotten.  History talks about Motown singers, percussionists, keyboardists, bassists and pianists, but is silent when it comes to the great horn players who contributed so much to make the “Motown sound.”


What did Parham do?  He made a documentary entitled The Unsung Musicians of the Motown Empire—a documentary which will be shown at The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History on December 27, 2013.   Accentuating the debut of the documentary will be a performance of Parham’s new song “Detroit City is Coming Back” by  The Original Vandellas . . . a must see and hear, so grab your ticket and get ready!



Tickets are available at the box office at the Museum (313) 494-5800 or (248) 705-7229.


Parham says, “These great “Unsung Musicians” blew (the) breath of life that formed music into their instruments on some of the greatest memorable celebrated hit recordings. However, they have been un-named and un-celebrated until now. This documentary will . . . educate and enlighten you . . . !”


Educational Arts Society Inc, spearheading the song with Parham, expects the documentary to correct an overdue wrong and shed light on these musicians.
