Saturday, March 30, 7PM

Free with museum admission

This group exhibition builds on the work: Temporary Autonomous Zones (TAZ) by Hakim Bey (Peter Lamborn Wilson). The project is curated by Richard Haden.

TAZ “alludes to creating temporary spaces that elude formal structures of control…thus creating the foundation for authenticity and spontaneity”. Richard Haden proposes to articulate the exhibition through TAZ and the ways in which it has to do with recreating an “intentional community” (IC) which relates to how past communities purposefully organized in various forms as collectives, to succeed as small villages or townships, guilds, radical groups, et cetera, that eventually gave way to controlling socio-economic structures, which eventually led to the loss of authentic empowerment.

Orchestra Miami invites you to experience the biblical story of Noah and his ark, as it come alive in Benjamin Britten’s Noye’s Fludde, an opera for the whole family. Based on the Chester Miracle Plays, Britten’s piece combines the voices of the students from Orchestra Miami’s Liberty City Sings Performance Project and the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center, with the talents of students from the South Florida Youth Symphony, the Sunrise School of Miami Orchestra and many others performing alongside the professional musicians from Orchestra Miami, to present a pageant of biblical proportions!

Noye’s Fludde features two of Miami’s most esteemed professional opera singers, alongside a cast of students from area public schools. Bass-baritone Lloyd Reshard, Jr. stars as Noye, and soprano Jouvanca Jean-Baptiste dazzles in the comic role of Mrs. Noye. Noye’s sons and wives are sung by Luis Lafaurie, Alejandra Gonzalez, Michael Gil, Ybriana Rodriguez and Amanda Lopez- all 6th graders at the Miami Arts Studio @ Zelda Glazer Middle School and Elysabeth Bengochea, a 5th grader at South Miami Arts Magnet K-8 School. The “Gossips” and the Animals of the Ark will be sung by students from the Liberty City Sings Performance Program and the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center. The production will be directed by renowned theater director Michael Yawney and conducted by Orchestra Miami’s Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi, with costume design by Marina Pareja and set design by Ainex Carmona. The performance is being presented in association with the Miami Children’s Initiative, the African Heritage Cultural Arts Center with major sponsorship by the Center for Social Change and the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
The Performances will be held on Saturday, May 30th at 4:00 & 7:00 PM at Miami Northwestern Senior High School, 1100 NW 71 Street, Miami, FL 33150. Advance Purchase Tickets are $20 Adults; $15 Seniors ($25/$20 at the door) and can be purchased through Orchestra Miami’s website at or by calling Brown Paper Tickets at 1-800-838-3006.

KCC Productions presents Jazz at MOCA featuring Vivian Sessoms

“A Powerhouse” (Quincy Jones)

Vivacious, vibrant, vigorous – all adjectives that describe the voice and performance of Vivian Sessoms. On Friday, April 24, you can experience this for yourself between 8 and 9:30 PM at North Miami’s Museum of Contemporary Art (“MOCA”) in a free performance of her special take on jazz and soul. Vivian, born and raised in Harlem, New York, was born with a love of music instilled in her as the daughter of two prominent musicians and niece of Nacy Wilson. Her mother was a former jingle and session singer, her father, a well-known flautist and percussionist who worked with James Brown and several other well-known musicians throughout his career.

Vivian began classically training her voice at the age of nine, and it wasn’t long before she was so well versed in her craft that she won a scholarship to the highly acclaimed Amas | Eubie Blake Repertory Company headed by the late Rosetta Lenoire. This was where she began training in theatre, dance and music, which eventually led her to a successful run in radio and television voiceovers. In fact, you’ve probably heard her, she was the soothing sound of a soprano in commercials that convinced you to purchase such products as Campbells Soup, Coke, Hershey’s and many more.

As a performer, Vivian has sung with many of the worlds most recognized artists: Stevie Wonder, Chris Botti, Cher, Christina Aguilera, Diddy, P!nk, Chaka Khan, Ke$ha, Rob Thomas, Patti Labelle, Patti Austin, Sinead O’Connor and numerous others. As a writer, Vivian has worked with just as many artists, including Ryuichi Sakamoto, Towa Tei, Lalah Hathaway, Amel Larrieux, Junior Vazquez and David Morales.

In 2007, Vivian and partner Chris Parks released their debut CD entitled “Sunny One Day,” to critical acclaim. Billboard magazine referred to Vivian’s voice as “clear and exquisite”, Uptown magazine called her voice “powerful”, and Urban Network magazine called Sunny One Day “an impressive debut so polished and effortless sounding, it’s as if it bonds to your DNA and defies you to stop playing it”.

Vivian is currently putting the finishing touches on a follow up cd, her first jazz effort, entitled “Heart,” due out this summer.

Backing Vivian will be a stellar trio of Martin Bejerano, piano, Eric England, bass & Rodolfo Zuniga, drums. MOCA is located at 770 NE 125th Street in North Miami. For more information visit or call 305-893-6211.
