The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami presents The French Horn Collective as part of its monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series. The French Horn Collective is an energetic and progressive band that performs an eclectic variety of Gypsy Jazz, Swing, and modern original French music throughout South Florida. Led by Parisian musician, multi-instrumentalist, composer, singer and songwriter Vincent Raffard, the diverse group consists of highly talented musicians from various musical backgrounds.
The French Horn Collective finds inspiration from genres such as Gypsy Jazz, Hot Swing, Ska and Polka, formulating the group’s unique, progressive sound. The French Horn kicked off its Gypsy project with a new album, “The French Horn Collective: Hot Club of Miami,” which features traditional acoustic instruments from the Gypsy Jazz genre. The band performs live across South Florida in settings such as festivals, restaurants, bars, private parties, radio shows, corporate affairs and even burlesque acts, with personnel ranging from a small trio to a large eight-piece band.
Swing into summer with the French-infused Gypsy Jazz of The French Horn Collective! The museum galleries will be open by donation from 7–10 p.m.
