The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is celebrating Black History Month with singer and violinist, Nicole Yarling, as part of its monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series on Friday, Feb. 28. Yarling is a rising star in the jazz community with her velvet voice, high technical skills and energetic personality.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Yarling grew up in a musical family where her musical taste was inspired by her father, who plays both the jazz organ and piano. Beginning at the age of nine, Yarling would play the violin with her father which inspired her to perform live. Yarling’s received an extensive musical education which included graduating with a B.A. in Music from Baruch College and then receiving a Master’s in music education from Columbia University. She also received private training in composition, arranging, voice and violin.

Additionally, Art Prevails Project will host a spoken word element with four poets performing original works inspired by moments in black history. Art Prevails Project is a performing and literary arts organization committed to impacting South Florida and beyond by providing engaging and authentic artistic and cultural experiences through performance and education while utilizing a multidisciplinary approach rooted in theatre and creative writing, to entertain, educate, and inspire.

Guests will also enjoy a special dance performance by MaryAnn Benjamin and choreographed by Fluxus Haus founder, Agatha Wright.

Visitors are encouraged to pass by the Bookleggers pop-up library and pick up a free book. Bookleggers mission is to permeate Miami with books. Through public access points, programming, and installations that place books in unexpected spaces, Bookleggers creates dynamic artistic and cultural experiences that increase book access and serve as a conduit for community exchange.

Also on view is HamacaS, a socially engaged project by Liene Bosquê, coordinated by Ana Clara Silva, on view from February 8 through March 29, 2020. HamacaS explores the cultural dissonance and emotional displacement experienced by immigrants in the United States. The project consists of an interactive installation at the museum that will be activated through collective hammock weaving sessions and workshops. The project will offer a critical and expansive conversation around immigration with communities in Miami.

Café Crème will host a bar with a signature MOCA cocktail and the US Census will be on-site distributing giveaways. Guests will also enjoy a pop-up photo booth and more.

The public is invited to enjoy extended activities beginning at 7:00 pm and the vibrant sounds of Nicole Yarling at 8:00 p.m., rain or shine.

This event is sponsored in part by the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency.

Guests may also walk through MOCA’s two exhibitions, Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” and Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations.” Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” traces the Chilean artist’s career-long commitment to exploring discarded and displaced materials, peoples and landscapes in a time of global climate change. The late French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations” aims to contribute to the scholarship and recognition of under-explored women artists, and to the intercultural influences on European artists in exile in the Americas, whose work was often deeply marked by indigenous and archaic cultures.

South Florida JAZZ at Bailey Hall presents the Latin Grammy Award-Winner and Flute Virtuoso NESTOR TORRES QUINTET, Saturday, February 15 at 8:00 PM. With his unique style, Puerto Rican flutist Nestor Torres will delight his audience on a magical night in which his unique sound will take them on a journey of Nestor’s greatest successes throughout his musical career. From mainstream jazz, R&B to Latin classics, Torres promises to present a musical kaleidoscope that makes each of his presentations variegated. Torres who is a native of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, resides in both Miami and Los Angeles, and mentions that 2020 is loaded with new projects, including the release of a new classical music album, which is being produced by the Uruguayan GRAMMY-winning conductor and composer José Serebrier and Julio Bague, vice president of Peermusic. The release of a single is also approaching, where he had a special alliance with the Dominican reggaetonero Mafio, with whom Torres balances his flute skills. He will also be releasing an album of collaborations with important Latin artists in what he calls an avant-garde production.

According to Dr Ron Weber, South Florida JAZZ president and artistic director, “Nestor has retained his Caribbean roots, while exploring jazz in its many forms with intriguing fusions with other genres. While his early inspirations were Dave Brubeck, Tito Puente and Cal Tjader, his early heroes were the classical flute icons Jean Pierre Rampal and his literal ‘man with the golden flute’ successor, James Galway. Beyond them, his influences include Cuban legend Richard Egües, and jazz greats Herbie Mann and Hubert Laws.”

Bailey Hall is located on the A. Hugh Adams Central Campus at 3501 SW Davie Rd. in Davie and offers free parking.

North Miami, Florida 33161
Website
Cost:

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is thrilled to welcome back Miami Big Sound Orchestra as part of the monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series on Friday, Dec. 27. Known as downtown Miami’s resident Latin Jazz big band since 2006, Miami Big Sound Orchestra combines 21st-century big band jazz with Afro-Cuban and Brazilian music, funk and soul. Their repertoire includes original compositions by Rafael “Cali” Valencia, legendary Miami bassist/composer; Chino Nunez, GRAMMY Award-winning producer; and Jaui Schneider, former pianist/composer of Ray Barretto; along with classics from legends such as the great Mario Bauzá.

The members of the Miami Big Sound Orchestra are all veteran Miami musicians who have performed and toured with top-name artists including Celia Cruz, Gloria Estefan, Issac Delgado, Jon Secada, Chayanne, Rey Ruiz, Tito Nieves, and K.C. and the Sunshine Band, among others.

The public is invited to enjoy the vibrant sounds of Miami Big Sound Orchestra, rain or shine. Guests may also walk through MOCA’s two exhibitions, Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” and Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations.” Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” traces the Chilean artist’s career-long commitment to exploring discarded and displaced materials, peoples and landscapes in a time of global climate change. The late French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations” aims to contribute to the scholarship and recognition of under-explored women artists, and to the intercultural influences on European artists in exile in the Americas, whose work was often deeply marked by indigenous and archaic cultures. Both exhibitions are on view from Nov. 26 through March 29, 2020.

This holiday season, he is returning to his hometown to personally celebrate and release his new track, “Feliz Navidad.” with The Cris Cab Christmas Experience performances on November 27th at Bodega in Miami Beach.

Cris Cab, the wildly popular singer, songwriter and instrumentalist has taken on the challenge to fuse his native Miami style with the winter-time staple song of the season, “Feliz Navidad.” Cab’s Reggae and Latin sound enhances the original 1970’s hit, originally recorded by Puerto Rican icon, Jose Feliciano. Feliciano himself instantly gave his blessing after listening to the song firsthand, the single will be released on Friday, November 29 via Spotify. At the same time, the Prince of Miami is set to embark on a series of performances and events bringing “The Cris Cab Christmas Experience” to life in Miami introducing the track directly to his fans, the only approved version of the classic in its almost 50-year history.

Cab hails from Miami, Florida and has characterized his career by embracing his family’s Latin roots and creating a unique blend of sounds that could only come from growing up in one of the most multicultural cities in the nation. As an artist, he has combined reggae, Latin, pop, and soulful instrumentals throughout his discography. In addition to his unique sound, Cab’s live performance is an experience like no other, showcasing his six-piece band encompassed by world-class musicians.

Growing up, Cris Cab, identified his passion for music at an early age. At the age of 15, Cab became the protégé of one of the most influential figures in pop culture, Pharrell Willams. Since that life-changing moment, he has had the privilege of working and collaborating with award-winning artists such as Marc Anthony, J.Balvin, Big Sean, Mike Posner, Wyclef, B.o.B, and Farruko. He’s also had the chance to share the stage nationwide with Ariana Grande, Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Iggy Azalea, Lorde, and others. With his diverse recordings, Cab has become the new face of fusion, interpolating Latin, reggae and hip-hop styles to represent the true soul of Miami.

Cab has accomplished many of his childhood dreams, in an increasingly competitive and diverse field of young artists.

Jazz at MOCA to Feature Pianist Kiki Sanchez on Nov. 29 11/29/19

Cost: Free

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is presenting Afro-Peruvian producer, composer, arranger, educator and pianist Kiki Sanchez as part of its monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series on Friday, Nov. 29. Sanchez is among the new generation of young Afro-Peruvian Jazz musicians that are emerging on the national Jazz scene.

Sanchez blends smooth Latin Jazz with a perfect balance of tropical Afro-Peruvian rhythm and jazz harmonies for a high energy performance. Born in Lima, Peru, Sanchez began playing piano at age 11 and later moved to Miami, FL, where he continued studying piano and cultivating a deep love for American Jazz music. Sanchez holds a master’s degree in Classical Composition from Florida Atlantic University.

Sanchez has had the opportunity to play with Jazz legends such as Jim Gasior, Cachao, Mike Gerber, Arturo Sandoval and more. Sanchez has collaborated on GRAMMY-nominated albums including Best Instrumental Album, “Blown Away” with Frankie Marcos and Arturo Sandoval and Best Traditional Tropical Album, “La Onda Latina” with Frankie Marcos and Clouds. He also worked closely with well-known, GRAMMY award-winning producer, Glen Kolotin on numerous projects.

Sanchez has released two Latin Jazz albums, “Dreams” in 2007 and “Two Worlds” in 2011 featuring GRAMMY award-winner Susana Baca. As an educator, he has released an instructional DVD titled the “The Real Latin Piano and Intro to Afro-Peruvian Rhythms, Vol.1.” 

The public is invited to enjoy the vibrant sounds of Kiki Sanchez, rain or shine. To kick off Miami Art Week, guests may also walk through MOCA’s two exhibitions, Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” and Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations.” Cecilia Vicuña’s “About to Happen” traces the Chilean artist’s career-long commitment to exploring discarded and displaced materials, peoples and landscapes in a time of global climate change. French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations” aims to contribute to the scholarship and recognition of under-explored women artists, and to the intercultural influences on European artists in exile in the Americas, whose work was often deeply marked by indigenous and archaic cultures. Both exhibitions are on view from Nov. 26 through March 29, 2020.

2019’s All Day I Dream of Art Basel breaks new ground in its Island Gardens home, an outdoor venue perched upon Miami’s Biscayne Bay. The venue offers picturesque scenery to match the ethereal sounds and carefully crafted decor signature of the roving brand. Its grassy surfaces are ideal for day-into-night dancing.Finally, the surrounding sea and downtown Miami skyline make a perfect backdrop for the show.

2019 has been a monumental year for All Day I Dream, which continued its global expansion. The brand enjoyed residencies in Mykonos and Ibiza through the summer, whilst travelling to Dubai, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Moscow, and beyond-cementing its status as a global leader for emotive shades of dance music.

The All Day I Dream label continues to grow as well, with an unrelenting commitment from Lee to supporting new and well-established artists that are breaking the status quo musically. One such example is the Adagio EP from Double Touch, a new project from Mark Olsen and classical pianist Van-Anh Nguyen that fuses classical into underground dance music. Other landmark releases include PHCK’s debut LP, More Than A Machine, Death On The Balcony’s landmark Shift The Perspective, and Bantwanas’ Back To Front. Finally, 2019 marked a milestone for Lee Burridge and Lost Desert: the release of their collaborative album, Melt, which earned critical acclaim.

Cost: General Admission: USD 35.0

The theme of this first elrow’art event is called Kaos Garden. We will witness the reinterpretation of Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” by the DJ and producer Paco Osuna and the multidisciplinary artist Okuda San Miguel. It is a collaboration between the two conceived as a trip through a night that will represent the dynamics of the historic triptych in which we see scenes of paradise and hell. In Kaos Garden, a unique hell will be the starting point. Darkness will represent the night until reaching ecstasy. The paradise will be associated with fun and hedonism with the light of the first hours of the morning in such a mystical and idyllic setting inside a beautifully built structure located at Miami’s exquisite Island Gardens. “We’re so excited and proud of elrow’Art and can’t wait to bring it to Art Basel, a perfect destination for art lovers and music fans to experience this unique multisensory collaboration,” says Michael Julian, Special Advisor to elrow.

“Introducing elrow’art in Miami during Art Basel is a very special event for me. It means bringing the art enthusiasts to a party where they can experience my universe from an unusual perspective. Moreover, the union of art and music really interests me due to the importance that the latter has in my life”. – Okuda San Miguel

Paco Osuna will be the sonic curator and spiritual guide who will select the rhythms that will draw the sound landscape to mark the route from hell to Eden. Okuda’s unique iconographic language of multicolored geometric structures and patterns that have made him one of the world’s most recognizable street artists of today will be on full display, right down to elrow’s signature confetti. He will recreate the surreal, chaotic and multisensory scene of a garden that will unleash emotions and human free will.

Bayfront Holiday Village — A Bustling Wonderland Filled with Brilliant Lights, Shopping, Food and Entertainment Awaits in Downtown Miami

Bayfront Holiday Village Brings Daily Christmas Tree Lights Shows, Waterfront Roller-Skating, Local Vendors, Nightly Music and Top Food and Drink Offerings

Downtown Miami’s iconic Bayfront Park will transform into the magical Bayfront Holiday Village offering free, family-friendly programming all season long. Guests of all ages will enjoy daily 50 ft. Christmas tree LED light shows, waterfront roller-skating by Bayskate, over 50 local vendors, festive music and al fresco food and drinks.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, locals and tourists alike will come for the weather, but stay for great shop-ping, entertainment and Miami’s version of a tropical winter wonderland.

“We know that New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles have pop-up holiday villages. We wanted to create a village where people would gather their loved ones and join in on some holiday cheer. Of course, we have something that the rest of the nation envies – our weather,” said Tony Albelo, event creator and CEO at SWARM.

Organizers want people to envision a quaint, picture-perfect, holiday outdoor venue filled with twinkling lights against Miami’s downtown skyline and waterfront Biscayne Bay. The picture-perfect, outdoor, holiday venue will be filled with twinkling lights and larger-than-life displays worthy of capturing the moment and posting it on Insta-gram.

“The only thing missing out of this Hallmark-perfect scene will be the frigid snow, but that’s why we invite our neighbors from the north to come here to enjoy Bayfront Holiday Village, Miami-style,” added Albelo.

Every night, a fully decorated, 50-foot state-of-the-art, animated Christmas Tree will feature hourly LED light shows sequenced to three different festive musical shows produced by Grammy-winning producer A.T. Molina.

New York has The Rink at Rockefeller Center, but Miami’s answer to cold-weather ice skating is Bay Skate, where adults and children can boogie to the beat of freestyle, tropical, contemporary pop and more. In the Northeast, peo-ple are ice skating and sipping hot cocoa wearing parkas. In Miami, we roller skate and sip mojitos in shorts. The Shops will offer a collection of 60 artisans in a jovial setting, each offering unique gift ideas to check off the “nice” list! Foodies will delight their senses at Bayfront Bites, where they’ll find seasonal beverages, sweet treats and food ga-lore!

The adventurous will participate in the Gnauhty Gnome Scavenger Hunt as they navigate Bayfront Park using guidebooks with clues to solve this year’s puzzle. Even fur babies will have a place of their own to hang out with free treats at the Santa Paws Dog Park, and every Sunday they’ll have Puppy Brunch!

In the festival’s grand finale, Tabea Zimmermann gives the world premiere of Steven Mackey’s reimagining of Hector Berlioz’ beloved concerto-symphony hybrid Harold in Italy. Mackey, who will be in attendance, depicts Harold in a new light, elaborating on Berlioz’ colorful themes and adding a new cadenza.

Friday October 18 at 8 PM: Get ready for a very special show at Arts Garage! Jose Fajardo, Jr.’s father, Jose Fajardo, would have been 100 on this day. This show will celebrate the Charanga Flute master who was well known during the Palladium days! Jose Fajardo, Jr. began at the age of 3 with his father playing percussion and since then has performed alongside and/or has recorded with some of the best and iconic Latin artists and musicians of all time, including Jose Fajardo, Sr, The Fania All-Stars, Johnny Pacheco, Larry Harlow, Orchestra Broadway, Azuquita, Alfredo De La Fe, Tipica 73, Oscar D’Leon, Jose Alberto (El Canario), La Sonora Matancera, Johnny Ray, Grupo Imagen, Luisito Carrion, Pedro Jesus, Cano Estremera, Edgar Joel, Johnny Almendra, Tito Puente, Sheila E., Nino Segarra, Cachao, and many others.

After the untimely death of his father in 2001, Jose Fajardo, Jr. has been the director of the orchestra created by his father in 1949 and has changed the traditional sound of charanga music to a larger salsa sound for all generations. In 2006 he was signed and is still endorsed by the leading manufacturer of percussion instruments, “Latin percussion,” a division of KMC Music. His single, “El Swing of New York” released in 2011, was No. 1 for “Salsa Magazine” play list for 4 consecutive weeks.

In 2014 he launched his new single, “Yo Estoy Desengañado” (Salsa Version) originally recorded as a ballad by the world-famous Cuban singer Orlando Contreras. This track was launched as one of the songs on his upcoming CD release “Mis Recuerdos”. In May of 2015 once again Fajardo released another single “No Tiene Rival” that has been a dancer’s delight. Recently he has been on a tour throughout cities in the United States to teach local students Latin American rhythms and culture.

An estimated one in eight U.S. women is expected to develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. While these statistics are alarming, individuals and organizations across the nation continue to do their part to fund vital research seeking a cure. This October, Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale is teaming up with AutoNation, America’s largest automotive retailer, to raise awareness for breast cancer as part of a month-long charitable drive, marked by a new signature event, the Rosé Garden Party on Saturday, October 19, from 8 to 11 p.m. at The Galleria Fort Lauderdale location. Proceeds from the ticketed event, which will feature live entertainment, drink specials and raffles, plus sales from specific drinks all month long, will benefit the Dolphins Cancer Challenge.

Throughout the month of October, Blue Martini Fort Lauderdale will donate $2 for every signature pink cocktail and $2 for every glass of Maison Belle Claire Rosé that is sold to the Dolphins Cancer Challenge. The Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC) was founded in 2010 by the Miami Dolphins organization as the signature initiative of the Foundation’s health area. The DCC’s mission is to improve people’s lives through financial support for innovative cancer research at South Florida’s only academic-based cancer center – Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, part of UHealth — the University of Miami Health System. Since its inception, the DCC has raised more than $27.5 million, donating 100 percent of participant-raised funds to the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. AutoNation is a proud sponsor of the event.

This month-long effort coincides with AutoNation’s partnership with The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale. Starting October 1, two gigantic pink reindeer will be prominently displayed throughout the entire month on the exterior of the mall to signify National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A pink themed vehicle will be displayed with the reindeer. This partnership underscores AutoNation’s commitment to driving out cancer. Through its DRV PNK Intiative, the company has raised more than $20 million for cancer research and treatment, placing its iconic pink plates on every vehicle it sells and services from coast to coast.

The month-long fundraiser will be marked by the Rosé Garden Party, a festive soiree featuring signature sips and culinary treats, plus raffles for designer giveaways and spa packages from sought-after brands and premier experiences.

Admission for this ticketed event includes entrance, a glass of Rosé or a signature Pink drink and a raffle ticket. Tickets are available to be purchased online for $15 from September 2 through October 19 at www.rosegardenpartyftl.eventbrite.com. Tickets are also available for purchase at the door for $20. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $10 each. Fifty percent of proceeds from the pre-sold online tickets and 100% of proceeds from the raffle tickets will be donated to the Dolphins Cancer Challenge.

LEAP Celebrates 10 Years of Second Chances for Incarcerated Women!

NPR’s James Judd to Emcee the fundraising and awareness-building event, with musical performances by Jazz Singers Leesa Richards and Brenda Alford.

LEAP (Ladies Empowerment and Action Program), the only reentry program in Miami-Dade County dedicated exclusively to women transitioning from prison, hosts the Second Chance Soiree on Sept. 26, 2019, from 6-10 p.m. at the Coral Gables Congregational Church. The festive event, which marks the 10th anniversary for LEAP, will draw attention to the serious plight of formerly incarcerated women reintegrating into society through songs and stories of compassion. Tickets are available now, and the event is open to the public.

During the event, sponsors and guests will also enjoy a cocktail reception, elegant hors d’ oeuvres, mixed media installation, and participate in a silent auction. All proceeds and donations from the Second Chance Soiree go towards LEAP’s in-prison education programming, post-release support services, and community engagement and advocacy efforts.

LEAP is distinctive, and its transformative services favorably impact communities. Women regain their footing through the organization’s entrepreneurship, employability, life skills, and trauma-informed substance abuse classes. Its secular programming allows for total diversity and inclusivity among all faiths. Since launching in 2009, LEAP has been successful in breaking the cycle of recidivism — less than five percent of LEAP graduates return to prison, in comparison with the national average in excess of 50 percent. Lowering recidivism rates translates into significant taxpayer savings, while creating safer and more stable neighborhoods.
