MOCA North Miami Hosts Haitian Independence Day Celebration Featuring Inez Barlatier, Jan Sebon and Fabienne Josaphat
Friday, 01/01/2021-, 07:00 pm-
RSVP / Register
Cost: Free

In honor of Haitian Independence Day, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is proud to host Haitian-American multidisciplinary artist Inez Barlatier, musician and surrealist visual artist Jan Sebon, and author Fabienne Josaphat for an intimate program of music and poetry on Jan. 1. This virtual performance coincides with the museum’s current exhibition “Life & Spirituality in Haitian Art: Selection from the Betty and Isaac Rudman Trust Collection,” on view through March 14, 2021.

Initiated by the voodoo ceremony of Bois Caïman on the night of August 14, 1791, The Haitian Revolution represents one of the key turning points in the history of the western world and human rights. Led by enslaved Africans in the French colony of Saint Domingue, the revolution resulted in the abolition of slavery in the colony, the first to do so in the western world, and the birth of Haiti on January 1 of 1804. Today, Haitian in Haiti and the diaspora celebrate their Independence in honor of a line of ancestors that fought for their freedom. At the center of the celebration is Soup Joumou, a traditional soup that becomes a symbol of their freedom. MOCA North Miami is pleased to celebrate our Haitian community.

The acts include:

Inez Barlatier is a Haitian-American multidisciplinary artist. At the age of 12 years old, she joined her father’s band, Jan Sebon & Kazak International. Inez later led her own band, Kazoots, for 6 years. She has received a Knight Arts Champion, a L.E.A.P. and an Artist Relief grant supporting her ongoing projects. Inez developed a children’s show entitled “Ayiti: Stories & Songs from Haiti” which was selected as a Spotlight presentation at the 2020 International Performance Art for Youth Conference.

Jan Sebon is a musician and visual artist from Haiti. He is a staple in Miami as pioneering Haitian Jazz music in Miami with his band Koleksyon Kazak. Sebon has hosted political radio shows in Haiti resulting in him being exiled and moving to Miami at the age of 22. He later became an activist and community organizer, fighting for Haitian immigrant rights and hosting another radio show on WDNA in Miami. He has been performing in Miami for over 30 years and has toured internationally while being a former board member at the Miami Light Project. Sebon is also a masterful African and Haitian drummer and surrealist visual artist.

Fabienne Josaphat is the author of Dancing in the Baron’s Shadow, a debut novel released with Unnamed Press and translated into French by Calmann-Levy. Her essay, Summer is an Empty House, recently made the Notable Essays mentions in Best American Essays 2016. Her fiction, non-fiction and poetry have been featured in the African American Review, The Master’s Review, Grist Journal, Damselfly, Hinchas de Poesia, Off the Coast Journal and The Caribbean Writer, as well as in Eight Miami Poets, a Jai-Alai Books poetry anthology. She was recently a national juror for the 2019 Scholastic Awards. She lives in South Florida.

The panel will be free and open to the public via the Zoom video conferencing platform.

WHERE: Online only at https://jazzaid.eduvision.tv/liveevents

WHEN: Saturday, December 12, at 8:00 PM (20:00) USA Eastern Time

The much-anticipated Empire Social Lounge is the newest project by the proprietors
of Casa De Montecristo by Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar

South Miami welcomes Empire Social Lounge, the second Miami location by the founders of the Prime Cigar brand. Empire Social is bringing a dose of “Sophisticated Relaxation” to South Miami. Proprietors Jason Reznik, Ryan Leeds and Peter Berntsen will proudly unveil Empire Social (which is the evolution of the Prime Cigar brand). Hours of operation Sunday – Saturday, 12:00 Noon until close.

“Sophisticated Relaxation” is a motto created by Empire Social/Prime Cigars founders, Jason Reznik and Ryan Leeds.It was embraced by patrons of their first venture which was Prime Cigar Boca Raton, considered THE cigar & whiskey lounge in all of Florida. The popularity of Prime Cigar Boca Raton carried over to their second venture, the widely acclaimed Casa de Montecristo by Prime Cigar & Whiskey Bar in Brickell-Miami. The success of these two locations created a demand in the Magic City which will spawn the much-anticipated Empire Social Lounge.

The Empire Social brand is a sophisticated lounge, which features a walk-in humidor, full bar stocked with rare and hard to find whiskeys, member’s lounge, and patio. Custom furniture and design elements (which exude simple elegance) will please the cigar aficionados, or those looking for a unique experience, a rare whiskey, craft cocktails, or a nightcap. Empire Social is perfect anchor location for one of Miami’s most dynamic neighborhoods, Downtown Dadeland.
The owners and management are well known for being customer-centric which led to the commission of a state-of-the-art air control system for Empire Social Lounge. This innovative A/C replaces 100 percent of the air constantly to provide an environment which will curb smoke and create a comfortable environment for patrons.

The Prime Cigar/Empire Social brand was born out of the life experiences between father and son. Ryan Leeds and his father shared a close relationship, as they bonded over the love of premium cigars, fine spirits, traveling, and all things luxury. Ryan was inspired to bring together best elements of his travels under one roof. Today, guests come from all over the world to experience “Sophisticated Relaxation.”

Black VoicesS
An Evening of Music and Thought

with guest speakers Allison Matulli and Darius Daughtry
Hosted by Nicole Henry

WHAT: The South Beach Chamber Ensemble presents a FREE Livestream broadcast of the South Beach Chamber Ensemble performing chamber music by African-American and African-French composers, with poetry and performance by Allison Matulli and Darius V. Daughtry

The program comprises four works:

Joseph Bologne: String Quartet #1 in C major (1771)
Jessie Montgomery: Strum (2012)
DBR: String Quartet No. 1, “X” (1993)
George Walker: String Quartet #1(1946)

WHO: Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799) was a champion fencer, classical composer, virtuoso violinist, friend of Mozart and conductor of the leading symphony orchestra in Paris. Today the Chevalier de Saint-Georges is best remembered as the first known classical composer who was of African ancestry; he composed numerous string quartets and other instrumental music, and opera.

Jessie Montgomery is an acclaimed composer, violinist, and educator. She is the recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award from the ASCAP Foundation, and her works are performed frequently around the world by leading musicians and ensembles. Her music interweaves classical music with elements of vernacular music, improvisation, language, and social justice, placing her squarely as one of the most relevant interpreters of 21st-century American sound and experience.

Daniel Bernard Roumain (“DBR”) is a prolific and endlessly collaborative composer, performer, educator, and social entrepreneur. “About as omnivorous as a contemporary artist gets” (New York Times), DBR has worked with artists from Philip Glass to Bill T. Jones to Lady Gaga; appeared on NPR, American Idol, and ESPN; and has collaborated with the Sydney Opera House and the City of Burlington, Vermont. He has been acclaimed as a violinist and activist.

George Theophilus Walker (1922-2018) was an American composer, pianist, and organist, who was the first African American to have won the Pulitzer Prize for Music for “Lilacs” in 1996. Over the course of five decades, he balanced a career as a concert pianist, teacher, and composer. In 1946, Walker composed his String Quartet #1. A string orchestra arrangement of the second movement of that work received its world premiere in a radio broadcast that was conducted by pianist Seymour Lipkin. Originally titled “Lament”, Walker later changed the title to “Lyric for Strings.” It has been one of the most frequently performed orchestral works by a living American composer.

The performers:

The South Beach Chamber Ensemble was founded in 1997 by Michael Andrews. It began with a free concert of Haydn and Dvorak Piano Trios at the Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach. Our Music in Beautiful Spaces series has been supported by Miami Beach Cultural Arts Council and the Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs for more than 20 years. The ensemble is one of the only arts organizations in south Florida dedicated to offering affordable chamber music programs to new audiences while showcasing local musical talent. Music in Motion: Miami to Rio, August and September 2005, was a great success. Our performances of Villa-Lobos, Copland and Mendelssohn at the Villa-Lobos Museum, Rio de Janeiro and Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, were well received in both countries. Music in Motion: Miami-Argentina-Brazil, September 2007, included concerts and student programs in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Buenos Aires, Miami Beach and Miami Shores.

QUIÉN: Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges (1745-1799) fue un campeón de esgrima, compositor clásico, violinista virtuoso, amigo de Mozart y director de la principal orquesta sinfónica de París.

Ha recibido el premio Leonard Bernstein de la Fundación ASCAP y sus obras se interpretan con frecuencia en todo el mundo por destacados músicos y conjuntos. Su música entrelaza la música clásica con elementos de la música vernácula, la improvisación, el lenguaje y la justicia social, lo que la coloca directamente como una de las intérpretes más relevantes del sonido y la experiencia estadounidenses del siglo XXI.

Daniel Bernard Roumain (“DBR”) es un compositor, intérprete, educador y emprendedor social prolífico y que colabora constantemente. “Tan omnívoro como se vuelve un artista contemporáneo” (New York Times), DBR ha trabajado con artistas desde Philip Glass hasta Bill T. Jones y Lady Gaga; apareció en NPR, American Idol y ESPN; y ha colaborado con la Ópera de Sydney y la Ciudad de Burlington, Vermont. Ha sido aclamado como violinista y activista.

George Theophilus Walker (1922-2018) fue un compositor, pianista y organista estadounidense, que fue el primer afroamericano en ganar el Premio Pulitzer de Música por “Lilacs” en 1996. A lo largo de cinco décadas, equilibró una carrera como concertista de piano, profesor y compositor. En 1946, Walker compuso su String Quartet # 1. Un arreglo de orquesta de cuerdas del segundo movimiento de esa obra recibió su estreno mundial en una transmisión de radio que fue dirigida por el pianista Seymour Lipkin. Originalmente titulado “Lament”, Walker luego cambió el título a “Lyric for Strings”. Ha sido una de las obras orquestales más interpretadas por un compositor estadounidense vivo.

El conjunto es una de las únicas organizaciones artísticas en el sur de Florida dedicada a ofrecer programas de música de cámara asequibles a nuevas audiencias mientras muestra el talento musical local. Music in Motion: Miami to Rio, agosto y septiembre de 2005, fue un gran éxito.

Rocking a red ribbon not only completes any outfit; it shows everyone – especially people living with HIV and their families – your support. On Tuesday, December 1 at 8:30 a.m. The World AIDS Museum and Educational Center (WAM) will present the official kick-off to World AIDS Day, founded in 1988 and themed this year as Rock the Ribbon. Hosted by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, the event will feature special guests Chuck Panozzo, Styx rock band member, and Laura Vivas, recording artist and former contestant on The Voice.

World AIDS Museum will gather elected officials, fellow HIV-related agencies and other stakeholders. Attendees will embrace this community gathering with special performances by Laura Vivas and the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus under the direction of Gary Keating. DJ Aulden Brown will add his flair to rock the crowd.

Special guest Styx rock band member Chuck Panozzo will be one of the voices heard as to why this day is so important. Charles Salvatore “Chuck” Panozzo is an American musician best known as the bass player for the rock band Styx. A longtime member of Styx, he founded the group with his fraternal twin brother, drummer John Panozzo, who died in July 1996, and singer/keyboardist Dennis De Young. He toured part-time from 1999 to 2003, and currently tours with Styx on a regular basis.

Chuck Panozzo is openly gay and has been out since 2001. That year, he also announced that he is living with HIV, and has been involved in campaigning for AIDS awareness and gay rights. In 2006, he spoke with Frontiers for the first time about his decision to come out. The following year, he released his autobiography “The Grand Illusion: Love, Lies, and My Life with Styx.”

Laura Vivas will offer a live performance that will coincide with the rock theme. Her blind audition on NBC’s hit show The Voice, Season 3, resulted in a spot on Christina Aguilera’s team. A native of Puerto Rico, Vivas’ career began at age 18 singing back-up for local artists. Since 2007, she has been the lead singer and the lone female in a six-piece South Florida cover band called Re-Mix. She has opened for artists such as Roberta Flack, Chaka Khan, Bruce Hornsby and more.

The event, sponsored by The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, Seasons 52, Michael Murphy Photography and GPR | Goodman Public Relations, will be open to the public and take place outdoors under the covered valet parking entrance. Facial coverings will be required. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance at www.worldaidsmuseum.org.

South Florida’s favorite Halloween show, IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS* (previously Hocus Pocus Live) is landing at The Kelsey Theater in Lake Park for two nights of holiday fun on October 30 and 31 (performances are at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. each night; each runs 1 hour and 15 minutes). Tickets are on sale with the opportunity to save $10.

Following eight consecutive years of instant sell-outs, the wildly popular all-ages tribute show brings Halloween’s most beloved classic to life with incredible detail. The audience is invited to take a dive into ‘90s nostalgia as South Florida’s top drag performers transform into the film’s iconic characters. All are invited to join this limited-seating, socially distanced event as they tell the story of three wacky witches, accidentally resurrected by teen pranksters on Halloween night in 1993. The dynamic lead cast includes Nicole Halliwell as Winifred Sanderson, Calypso Monroe as Sarah Sanderson and Nicky Monet as Mary Sanderson.

Produced and created by South Florida’s drag mastermind Nicole Halliwell (TLC’s I am Jazz, America’s Got Talent, Queenz The Drag Experience), IT’S JUST A BUNCH OF HOCUS POCUS boasts intricately detailed sets, eerily uncanny lookalikes, replica props and costuming, and more in this immersive stage spectacle. Going light years beyond your standard “drag show,” there’s nothing quite like this! Prior to each performance, audiences can enjoy “Wicked Villains,” a “delightfully evil preshow,” starring the cast of QUEENZ The Drag Experience as even more fabulous female impersonators transform into such favorite cartoon villains like Maleficent, Ursula, Cruella DeVille, and The Evil Queen.

Tickets are now on sale starting at $65 for general admission, and $75 for “front row” VIP, which includes a souvenir gift pack. To save $10 off any ticket, use coupon code SAVE10 at checkout to unlock discounted tickets which can be purchased by visiting www.hocuspocuslive.net, by calling The Kelsey Theater at (561) 328-7481, or the Boca Black Box Theater at (561) 483-9036.

The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale, recognized as Broward County’s premier shopping destination, has announced emerging songstress Carly Jo Jackson as its next featured performer on Happy Hour with The Galleria, a virtual music series, scheduled for Thursday, June 4, at 5 p.m. on Facebook Live.

With a voice filled with grit and soul, Carly Jo Jackson brings the heat of the Florida sunshine to all she does. She has a vocal tone that is as infectious as her charismatic stage presence. She caught the attention of some big names in the music and entertainment business, opening shows for Michael McDonald (who also provided vocals on her recent EP), Kenny Loggins and Dennis Quaid and serving as a musical inspiration to Jeff Bridges who recently featured her on his Sleep Club website. Other notable performances include her 2014 appearance on America’s Got Talent, where she appeared in two televised episodes and advanced to Judgement Week; performing as an Emerging Artist at 2018’s Summerfest; singing backup vocals to Kenny Loggins at 2019’s Hawaii Songwriters Festival; performing at the renowned 30A Songwriters Festival along with Jason Isbell, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Mullins, Livingston Taylor and more; opening a San Francisco 49ers game; and winning the 2015 Belk Southern Musician Showcase. In late 2019, she released her EP Au Naturel, produced by Chris Pelonis and Lost Coast Records and distributed by Jimmy Buffet’s Cherry Bomb Records.

Launched in April on Facebook Live, Happy Hour with The Galleria has successfully entertained thousands in the local community during the COVID-19 quarantine. Jackson will join previous Happy Hour with The Galleria virtual music performers Alexander Star, The Tim Charron Band and Tori Rossi Music and WILL PLUS. These archived recorded livestream performances can be found at facebook.com/GalleriaFtLauderdale.

The Galleria at Fort Lauderdale has already welcomed shoppers back with limited hours and additional safety measures according to government guidelines. Seasons 52, The Capital Grille and P.F.

Website
Cost:

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. Both exhibitions are on view through March 29, 2020.
