Cost: 40-50

Saturday, March 16, 2019 – 8:00 p.m. John Scofeilds Combo 66 comes to Bailey Hall. Scofield is one of the most influential and innovative guitarists of his generation. He has spent the last 40+ years blazing a trail through the post-fusion wilderness, bringing his singular voice to a variety of different projects. His hallmark is his masterful improvising, and his music generally falls somewhere between post-bop, funk-edged jazz, and R&B.

Scofield’s résumé reads like a who’s who of the last 40 years of jazz. After graduating from the Berklee School of Music, his first recording was with Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker. He then replaced Pat Metheny in Gary Burton’s band and soon he would be performing with the likes of Charles Mingus, Billy Cobham, and Herbie Hancock, and Miles Davis, with whom he had an influential stint from 1982-85 that placed him firmly in the foreground of jazz consciousness as a player and composer.

South Florida JAZZ, the area’s premier jazz organization, continues its 27th season of presentation, and the second season of “South Florida JAZZ at Bailey Hall,” with the venerable JOHN SCOFIELD. The indomitable, genre-bending guitarist brings his new quartet, Combo 66, to South Florida to the delight of his legions of fans.

Bailey Hall is located on the A. Hugh Adams Central Campus at 3501 SW Davie Rd. in Davie and offers free parking. Tickets are $40-$50; $10 for students under 25 with valid I.D.; they are available by visiting southfloridajazz.org or baileyhall.org or contacting the Bailey Hall box office at (954) 201-6884. The box office and phone lines are open Monday through Friday from noon to 5 p.m.; Saturday from 7:00 p.m. until curtain time. All performances commence at 8:00 p.m.

Cost: $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is always free for members, military and children ages six and under.

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will host its newest visual arts exhibit entitled “Paradise from Land to Sea: Photography of JohnBob Carlos” from March 3 – May 22, 2019. Photographs artistically capturing the beauty and majesty of Florida’s coastal vistas, skies and wildlife will be on display at the New River Inn.

JohnBob Carlos, a native Floridian and photographer, captures images of Florida’s wildlife, landscapes, cultures, and waterways. His art of the lens is his means for creating a voice for Florida’s nature and preserving Florida’s culture. At a young age he felt a calling to paddle, hike, fish, and explore the Everglades. He was at home among the hammocks, swamps, strands, animals, Mangrove Islands and Florida’s wild. In recent years Carlos has become deeply concerned about the state of Florida’s nature – the devastation of these areas mostly due to money, development, pollution, business and politics. He continues to realistically document the beauty and wonder of the world around us and uses his lens to focus on the region’s need for the greater conservation and preservation of resources.

Presented by History Fort Lauderdale, bringing the stories of our diverse community to life through engaging educational experiences, innovative cultural exhibits, research and preservation of artifacts. Residents and visitors to Fort Lauderdale are invited to explore the city’s rich past that is housed in historic buildings on a lushly landscaped campus – the History Museum of Fort Lauderdale situated in the 1905 New River Inn, the 1907 Pioneer House Museum, the 1899 Ivy Cromartie Schoolhouse Museum and the Hoch Research Library, South Florida’s foremost history center housing print resources and newspapers from 1910 – present plus 400,000 archival photos, 2,500 maps and 5,000 architectural blueprints. Museum hours are Monday – Friday from noon – 4 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. History Fort Lauderdale is a nonprofit agency supported by memberships, grants and charitable contributions.

Cost: General admission tickets are $25 and VIP tickets with priority seating are priced at $40, plus a small service fee.

The Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus (FTLGMC) is honoring the 100 years of American Composer Leonard Bernstein and the legacy of Matthew Shepard – a college student who more than two decades ago was the victim of a brutal gay-hate murder – during “A Celebration of Life, Love and Music” performance on Sunday, March 17 at 5 p.m. from the All Saints Episcopal Church in Fort Lauderdale. A portion of show proceeds will benefit the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

While a significant portion of the evening showcases the prolific works of Bernstein, the Chorus is dedicating “Changing Hearts,” a special, six-piece collection, to Shepard and others who have been the victims of gay-hate crimes. The set features songs from some of Bernstein’s renowned Broadway musicals such as West Side Story, On the Town and Candidae. Scenes from The Laramie Project, a play that debuted in 2000 by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project about the reaction of Shepard’s death, are being interspersed with the evening’s musical selections: Tonight; Something’s Coming; One Hand, One Heart; I Can Cook Too and Make Our Garden Grow.

Funding for the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus is provided in part by the Broward County Board of County Commissioners as recommended by the Broward Cultural Council. General admission tickets are $25 and VIP tickets with priority seating are priced at $40, plus a small service fee.

Tickets are available for purchase online at TheFTLGMC.org or by calling (954) 832-0060.

About Michelle DiMarco
Michelle DiMarco had no idea she wanted to be an entrepreneur. 
After college, DiMarco struggled finding a career that she was madly
passionate about. She sought refuge in keeping up on the latest trends
in fashion magazines and designer blogs, while styling her friends for fun.
Her muses ranged from Bridget Bardot to Diane Kruger and Carine
Roitfeld. When a retail space opened up near her home in Florida, her mom encouraged her to take a leap of (fashionable) faith. She listened closely
to her heart which encouraged her to create the Lilac And Lilies Boutique. 
 
Michelle DiMarco, born in New Port Richey, Florida and raised by a single
mother from Cuba, learned from an early age the importance of her roots,
heritage and culture, yet to cultivate an independent spirit to evolve
and successfully follow her dreams. DiMarco graduated from Florida
Atlantic University in Boca Raton with a degree in Intercultural
Communications. During college, she pursued her passion for travel
while spending three months in Ghana, Africa for an exclusive study
abroad program. Thereafter, she continued to be inspired by exploring
new places which led her to New York City to attend The Fashion Institute
of Technology where she studied Creative Enterprise Ownership. Over
the last ten years, DiMarco has grown the brand into a shopping
destination for high quality, on-trend and affordable finds for Florida’s
fashionistas and beyond with a corresponding e-shop.
 
Throughout her career as an entrepreneur, DiMarco has been able to
give back in many ways as a devoted volunteer and advocate for
philanthropy. She has been nominated as one of the 100 Outstanding
Women of Broward County for three years in a row, benefitting The
Boys and Girls Club. She is active on the board of The Humane Society
of Broward County, and regularly volunteers for Kids in Distress. DiMarco
is also a recipient of The Glammy Award for her community activism
benefitting breast cancer research. DiMarco has been featured in WWD,
New York Post, Forbes, CBS, NBC, Sun Sentinel, Boca Life, the Miami
Herald and more.
 
DiMarco currently lives in Fort Lauderdale with her King Charles
Cavalier puppy, Lily. She enjoys living a healthy lifestyle of mind, body
and spirit – which makes DiMarco the successful, well- rounded
businesswoman that she is today.

Saturday, February 16, 2019 – 8:00 p.m.: South Florida JAZZ, the area’s premier jazz organization, in partnership with Bailey Hall, continues its 27th season of presentation, and the second season of “South Florida JAZZ at Bailey Hall,” with the Donny McCaslin Quartet. Mr. McCaslin is rising-star tenor saxophonist propelled to prominence by his Grammy-awarded collaboration with the late David Bowie. He is making his first South Florida appearance with this concert. The three-time Grammy nominee is the leading saxophonist, composer, and musical pioneer of his generation, receiving wide commercial and critical acclaim in jazz, and even rock and electronica circles alike.

Raised in Santa Cruz, California, McCaslin attended Berklee College of Music, where in his senior year he would join NEA Jazz Master Gary Burton’s quintet. Moving to New York in 1991, he quickly made a name for himself as a first-call soloist and touring musician, working with Maria Schneider’s orchestra, Dave Douglas, Danilo Perez, Brian Blade, Gil Evans project, Steps Ahead, and many others. During this period, he also released several albums under his own name while receiving critical awards such as a Chamber Music of America’s New Works Grant in 2006 and DownBeat Critics Poll ‘Rising Star’ category in 2008 and 2009.

Named “one of the hottest jazz tickets in the world” for 2017, recent awards included Best International Jazz Artist at the 2017 Jazz FM Awards in London and the prestigious Paul Ackett Award from the 2017 North Sea Jazz Festival.
