The David Kikoski Quartet featuring Eric Alexander April 17

David Kikoski has had a long career as one of the New York area’s swingingest pianists. His band features NY all-stars with renowned tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, bassist Joe Martin and the incomparable drummer, Billy Hart. The online-only concert is April 17 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm EDT, South Florida JAZZ on ViewStub. The $15 ticket also includes 360 days of extended access to re-watch the concert in case you miss the premier. Link: https://viewstub.com/David-Kikoski-Quartet-feat-Eric-Alexander

While Kikoski can frequently get into that hard-core beast-like state of effervescent, muscular swing, he can also play with great beauty, sensitivity and lyricism, especially on ballads and when accompanying vocalists. Tonight, along with preferred rhythm section mates Joe Martin on bass and the splendid, venerable drummer, Billy Hart, is tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, who has been a South Florida JAZZ favorite for several years, now making his fourth appearance. Alexander is one of the most respected and also prolific artists on the jazz scene.

PS: You told us and we’ve listened – you will be able to view the concert to your Smart TV via YouTube. Viewstub will send you an access code for the concert. On the Viewstub viewing page there is link to YouTube from which you then can cast the content to your TV.

Cost: Free

Join the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) for a virtual conversation with artists Laz Ojalde and Natalie Zlamalova, the principles of Studio AMLgMATD, with “Art on the Plaza” Curator Amanda Sanfilippo Long about their collaborative art practice and the background of their special Art On The Plaza project.

Studio AMLgMATD is a Miami-based collaborative studio established by Laz Ojalde and Natalie Zlamalova in 2014. Studio AMLgMATD experiments in works of art, design objects, and environments reflect their love of unusual and overlooked materials. AMLgMATD’s method consists of incorporating historical and geographical research into their visual language, playing with the sense of nostalgia, the application of familiar materials onto new forms and unexplored materials into familiar settings, and redefining their surroundings with humor.

In January 2021, the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) launched “Art on the Plaza,” a year-long series of newly commissioned, temporary public artworks by Miami-based artists on MOCA Plaza. Featured artists include: Reginald O’Neal, Studio AMLgMATD (Laz Ojalde and Natalie Zlamalova), a collaborative presentation by Morel Doucet and Stephen Arboite, Nice N’ Easy (Allison Matherly & Jeffrey Noble) and Najja Moon. The museum will host a series of virtual programs to coincide with the art installations throughout the year.

MOCA’s “Art on the Plaza” program is made possible with major support from the NMCRA. Completed in October 2018, the MOCA Plaza renovation was made possible due to a grant from the North Miami Community Redevelopment Agency (NMCRA) to cover construction costs of nearly 33,000-sq.-ft. of brick pavers, new landscaping, new LED lights and necessary equipment.

Cost: $15

Ten Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, 2 NAACP Image Awards, and a Soul Train Award, Take 6 is the most awarded a cappella group in history. Any singer who aspires for vocal excellence cannot overlook the contributions these men have made to music. Take 6 has performed with and won praise from such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Brian Wilson, Ben E. King, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Al Jarreau, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, and Whitney Houston, to name a very few. Some of the honors Take 6 has enjoyed over the past few years include being chosen as the first musical group to perform in Cuba at the normalization of relations between our two countries, and their induction into The Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

What makes the music and the group last this long? The answers are direct and simple: faith, friendship, respect, and love of music. The multi-platinum selling sextet says of their longevity, “We are family in the sense that we care deeply about each other, which helps keep us together. We have times when it gets tough, but we pull together because of the love and respect we have for one another. The group’s willingness to let members do other projects also adds to the brand and the cohesiveness of the group,” says Joey Kibble. Kibble is a motivational speaker and Alvin Chea does voiceover work session-singing on dozens of TV shows, feature films and commercials with his uniquely recognizable bass vocals. Two of the members have solo projects in the works, others produce outside acts, Mark Kibble arranges for A-list artists and McKnight is working on a documentary. “It adds even more credibility and depth to the group as a whole, enriched by each of our outside skills and experiences,” Kibble adds.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring John Bailey 4/8/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Featuring John Bailey on April 8
Thursday, 04/08/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
Website
Cost: Free, live interactive Zoom

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will feature writer/historian John Bailey on the next April 8 noon segment of its “Meet the Author” interactive Zoom series. The new free series takes place on the second Thursday of each month. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthorBailey.

Bailey is author of A New River Runs Through It, an exciting, comprehensive story of a river and the city that grew up along its banks. Beginning with the legend of how the river acquired its name, this narrative brings to life the story of the rugged men and women who settled along it and built the city of Fort Lauderdale into a world class international business and financial center. It ends with the latest events: the recent expansion of rail commuter service, the city’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic, and a look forward to our future. The book is available on Amazon and in signed editions at History Fort Lauderdale’s Museum Shop.

In 1946, at the age of nine, John Bailey arrived at the New River with his parents. He attended several of the area’s different schools – West Side, Davie, Naval Air, Central, and Fort Lauderdale High School. Through his various local teachers, Bailey developed an abiding interest in his home town. Many of his personal experiences of growing-up and living along the River are sprinkled throughout this book. His previous best selling history books include Sentinel of the Jersey Cape, The Story of the Cape May Lighthouse, Cape Island, The Jewel of the Jersey Shore and Juet’s Journal, Henry Hudson’s Explorations on the Half Moon.

Bailey joins Kingsley Guy and Donn R. Colee, Jr. as part of History Fort Lauderdale’s prestigious “Meet the Author” series, a chance to converse with South Florida-based writers, launched in February. Upcoming novelists will be announced.

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under. Tickets are available online at HistoryFortLauderdaleTickets.

In compliance with local and state health guidelines, visitors to History Fort Lauderdale will be required to wear a mask, have a digital temperature reading and practice safe social distancing of six feet apart. Hand sanitizer will be available at the front desk admission point and all surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned multiple times a day, per CDC guidelines.

On March 24 at 7:00 p.m., MOCA will host “Conversations at MOCA: Electric Tree with Mark Handforth and Adler Guerrier,” virtually via Zoom. During the event, artists Mark Handforth and Adler Guerrier will speak about their art practice in the public realm. As artists who recently accomplished public art projects in North Miami, they will discuss their method of bringing a public art project to life. The conversation will take us through all the major steps of the process, from conceptual ideas to development and to working with curators, museums, and governmental agencies. Moderated by Dehja Carrington, she will drive the artists elaborate about their past, present, future projects and their process.

Based in Miami for over 20 years, Mark Handforth is profoundly tied to the legacy of the 20th-century American avant-garde.

He graduated from the Academy of Fine Art in Frankfurt and the Slade School of Fine Art in London. He is internationally acclaimed for his installations in the public spaces. His large-scale sculptures have been displayed in Central Park in New York, the Dallas Museum of Art, and the MCA in Chicago, and during the FIAC offsite event in Paris. Mark Handforth has also received public commissions from the cities of Paris (Porte de Bagnolet) and Zurich (Tessinerplatz).

Adler Guerrier was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, and currently resides and works in Miami, FL, where he received a BFA at the New World School of the Arts. Guerrier recently had a solo exhibition at Perez Art Museum Miami, Miami, FL. He has exhibited work at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami, FL; The Bass Museum of Art, Miami, FL; Harn Musem of Art, Gainesville, FL; and The Whitney Biennial 2008. His works can be found in public collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, NY. His work has appeared in Art Forum, Art in America, The New York Times, and ARTNews.

Dejha Carrington is the Vice President of External Relations & Communications of National YoungArts Foundation, a national organization that empowers artists to pursue a life in the arts. Carrington Also co-founded Commissioner, a membership program dedicated to helping everyday people build their art collection with local artists. In addition to her leadership roles, Carrington has consulted for arts and cultural, social profits, private collections, cities, and global social responsibility initiatives, including the William John Kennedy Collection with The Warhol museum, the Renzo Piano Pavilion at Kimbell Art Museum, and the Medellin Biennial in Colombia. In 2015, Dejha co-created the public art installation NEWT: Experiments in Light, Color & Sound; and is a founding partner of FADE TO BLACK, one of the first and most celebrated platforms for artists of color during Art Basel Miami Beach week. A recognized media source and speaker on communications, arts advocacy, and cultural programming, Dejha was born and raised in Montreal. She is fluent in French and English and calls Miami her home.

Dan Tepfer in “Bach to the Future”

On Saturday, March 20 at 8 PM EDT (GMT – 4:00), the astonishing pianistic and technological talent of Dan Tepfer will be on display as he follows the arc of J.S. Bach and his impact on modern jazz in “Bach to the Future,” an incredible journey. This concert, followed by a Meet & Greet with the artist, is being presented as an exclusive livestreamed experience.

Dan Tepfer is one of this generation’s most extraordinary and brilliant talents, earning an international reputation as a pianist-composer and AI innovator with wide-ranging ambition and individualism. By looking at his tour schedule, it’s impossible to predict what Dan will do next. He has performed around the world with some of the leading lights in jazz and classical music, spending a decade as sidekick to the late, legendary alto saxophonist, Lee Konitz, and then becoming a favored accompanist to soprano Renée Fleming.

Whether it is his extraordinary original and improvisational expressions of Bach’s Goldberg Variations or the ingenious intersection between science and art in Natural Machines, Dan Tepfer unfailingly thrills and astounds.

On Friday, March 26 at 7:00 p.m., the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) presents Melanie Charles in its third edition of Virtual Jazz at MOCA. Melanie Charles is a Brooklyn-born singer-songwriter and flutist of Haitian descent, with a creative fluidity spanning Jazz, soul, experimental, and Haitian roots music.

Viewers and their whole families do not have to leave the comfort of their homes to enjoy her sound.

Charles creates a space where tradition meets present time, using Roland SPs, loop pedals, and the flute to blur the lines between and among social classes, cultures, genders, and theories to create a world where opposing elements can co-exist. Her recent television appearances include Good Morning America, SNL, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

With the goal of ensuring the continuity of Jazz at MOCA, the museum will launch the program virtually, in partnership with WDNA Radio—South Florida’s premier jazz radio station.

Junior Achievement of South Florida launches Girls Rule – one amazing initiative and two exciting virtual events that celebrate, empower, and inspire women and girls.

Girls Rule with Title Sponsor Comerica Bank and Presenting Sponsor Bluegreen Vacations, kicks off with The Girls Rule Launch Event on Tuesday, March 16, from noon-1:15 p.m. “We are bringing together today’s resilient and forward-thinking women together to connect around a common vision to transform and advance the world for future generations of women,” said Laurie Sallarulo, President & CEO.

The Launch Event is reserved for sponsors, their guests and supporters and will provide an intimate and real-life opportunity to network. Guests will be inspired by Kara Goldin, Founder and CEO of Hint, Inc. Her company is best known for its award-winning Hint® water, the leading unsweetened flavored water, with more than 150 employees and $150 million in sales.

On Wednesday, March 31, from 3-5 p.m. is the Girls Rule – Ignite Your Super Power Main Event that will connect hundreds of high school girls with powerful women. Students who might not have the opportunity to be influenced and mentored by strong women role models, will engage with inspiring and exciting keynote speakers, attend breakout sessions led by experienced women leaders paired with young female JA Alumni and receive a swag bag.

The event keynote speaker is Ari Chambers, a multi-media journalist, sports host, and social media manager based in New York City. Ari works for highlightHER and has grown its followers to over 70000 and is considered the fastest growing women’s sports platform. Her message: “Women’s Potential is Limitless”.

Breakout session topics will cover self-care, goal setting, financial wellness, self-invention, personal branding, making responsible choices, building positive relationships, self-acceptance, effective teamwork, the power of positivity and effective communication/public speaking.

“We are honored to serve as the title sponsor of Junior Achievement Girls Rule,” said Mo Corker, Comerica Bank Florida External Affairs Market Manager. “Historically, women have played a vital role in our country’s economic recovery and growth, which is why it is important that we invest in girls’ and women’s empowerment. Our bank is committed to equipping the leaders of tomorrow with the tools and money skills needed to navigate the increasingly complex financial landscape. Partnering with JA on this initiative, creates a path to economic freedom for girls who traditionally would not have access to these resources.”

Website
Cost: $15

Piano prodigy Joey Alexander is the next featured artist scheduled to perform at ‘JazzAid Live at the Banyan Bowl’ at Pinecrest Gardens. At just 17 years old, the young musician has countless accolades under his belt, including a solo performance at the 58th Grammy Awards and a White House performance for the Obamas alongside Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding, as well as an NPR Tiny Desk Concert and a Carnegie Hall debut.

Joining Alexander will be Ashley Pezzotti, a 24 year old graduate of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, whose jazz career is taking off. Pezzotti was the winner of the JazzMemes-hosted #WhatTheEllaChallenge, singing along to Alexander’s song, Someone to Watch Over Me. Pezzotti released her first studio album, We’ve Only Just Begun, in 2019.

Alexander’s upcoming virtual concert will broadcast live from the Banyan Bowl at Pinecrest Gardens at 8 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 13. The cost is $15 for an individual performance, with a generous portion of ticket sales being donated to World Central Kitchen. Tickets can be purchased online at www.pinecrestgardens.org/jazzaid.

Cost: $15

A funny thing happened to Joey Alexander over the past five years, a whirlwind period during which he became the most brilliantly precocious talent in jazz history, the youngest musician ever nominated for a Grammy Award in a jazz category; and a media favorite who’s earned a profile on 60 Minutes, a front-page profile in the New York Times and other premier coverage. As a pianist, composer, and bandleader, Joey Alexander is enjoying one of the most ascendant careers in jazz, thanks to his mind-blowing technique, innate musical smarts, and ability to communicate irresistible joy. At the 2016 Grammy Awards, he played during both the pre-telecast and the primetime TV event. That same year, he also performed with Wayne Shorter and Esperanza Spalding for the Obamas at the White House, as part of a nationally televised International Jazz Day special. In 2018, he headlined Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater with a 20-piece string section orchestrated and conducted by Grammy nominee Richard DeRosa. On October 18, 2019, he made his triumphant Carnegie Hall debut to a sold-out Zankel Hall crowd. Early on in his ascent, the trumpeter and Jazz at Lincoln Center leader Wynton Marsalis said that “there has never been anyone … who could play like that at his age.” Marsalis, who essentially “discovered” Alexander via his YouTube videos and invited him to New York, was spot-on in his assessment. And today, with his newest album release, “WARNA,” Joey Alexander continues to perform at the highest level. Joey will be joined by Special Guest vocalist from New York (and Miami native) Ashley Pezzotti

As the duo secures local investment in a feature film production and convinces locals they can become stars, the stage is set for a stranger-than-fiction tale of Hollywood dreams, deceit and delusions.

For over a year now, COVID-19 has been negatively impacting many aspects of our lives, including our relationships.

For some, relationships were their primary way of coping with everyday life. For others, however, relationships were a pre-existing source of stress.

At Albizu University’s Miami Campus, we’re known for our intensive focus on high-level psychology. Whether you’re worried about relating to a significant other, family member or even a coworker, our psychologists and counselors can show you how to cope with the pandemic’s impact on all of your relationships.

Join us for a free, one-hour webinar with Albizu University’s top professors to learn some new relationship repair skills!

The event will explore the relationship conflict process, from what happens to our bodies physiologically during an argument, to differences and psychosocial influences among age groups in how we relate to one another.

Albizu professor and neuropsychologist Dr. Isaac Tourgeman will moderate the program, which will also explain how therapy can help you, and give suggestions on how to find a therapist who best fits your needs.

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Launches with Donn Colee, Jr. 2/11/21

History Fort Lauderdale’s “Meet the Author” Zoom Series Launches with Donn Colee, Jr.
Thursday, 02/11/2021-, 12:00 pm-01:00 pm
RSVP / Register
Cost: Free

History Fort Lauderdale, proud steward of our community’s past by making our heritage accessible and engaging to residents and visitors, will launch the first segment of its “Meet the Author,” interactive Zoom series with Palm Beach County-based Donn R. Colee, Jr. author of Legends & Lore of Fort Lauderdale’s New River (Arcadia Publishing/The History Press), on February 11 at noon. The series, featuring local writers of all genres, will continue on the second Thursday of each month.

Colee Jr. is a seventh-generation Floridian and a direct descendent of George Colee, who immigrated to the St. Augustine area from England in 1821. Donn grew up in Orlando but frequently visited relatives in the ancient city, where his curiosity was piqued by stories about a massacre of long-ago family members at Fort Lauderdale’s New River. While the “Colee Massacre” story was later debunked, it refused to die. His Legends & Lore of Fort Lauderdale’s New River began as an attempt to finally resolve the last vestiges of that myth, but the power of New River quickly propelled the book to become a history of the river, its fascinating people, and the transformation of its wilderness into a metropolis. This is his second book. His first, Towers in the Sand, is the history of radio and television stations in Florida and the people who brought them to life. His family has been engaged in Florida broadcasting for three generations. Colee is a member of the Florida Historical Society, History Fort Lauderdale, St. Augustine Historical Society and Historical Society of Palm Beach County. He is a former commissioner of the Florida Inland Navigation District, the state agency responsible for maintenance and improvements of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway from Fernandina Beach to Key Biscayne. It was built by a company that was cofounded in 1881 by his great-great-great-grandfather, who became its civil engineer. Donn and his wife, Martha, reside in Palm Beach Gardens.

Upcoming authors will be announced. Viewers may register at http://bit.ly/HFLMeetTheAuthor .

History Fort Lauderdale is currently open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., with
docent guided tours, daily, at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Group walking tours are available upon special request. Admission is $15 for adults; $12 for seniors and $7 for students (through age 22 with a valid student ID). Admission is free for members, military and children ages six and under.

As many Americans unite in a shared mission about the civil rights issues of our time, our community joins others in the important work to fulfill the promise of equality by bringing constructive conversations to help illuminate the path to progress and meaningful change. So when those who believe in justice and fairness have had enough, how do we evolve as a country and as a community? How do we push for progress? How do we create equality for all? Do we ask ourselves, have we done enough?

The civil, fact-based debate features three panelists: Gregory Adam Haile, J.D., President of Broward College; Keith Koenig, CEO of City Furniture; and Germaine Smith-Baugh, Ed.D., President and CEO of Urban League of Broward County. The event is moderated by Doug Lyons, longtime journalist and former columnist and opinion writer.

COLERIDGE-TAYLOR AND BRAHMS
CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY MONTH
With Host Nicole Henry
Guest Musicians Chauncey Patterson, viola, and
Andres Candamil, clarinet

WHAT: Coleridge-Taylor: Clarinet Quintet in F# minor, Op. 10
Brahms Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op.115

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor (1875-1912) was an English composer and conductor. Of mixed race birth, he achieved such success that he was referred to by white New York musicians as the “African Mahler” when he had three tours of the United States in the early 1900s. Coleridge-Taylor was particularly known for his three cantatas on the epic poem, Song of Hiawatha by American Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Coleridge-Taylor premiered the first section in 1898, when he was 22.

Johannes Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet in B minor, Op. 115, was written in 1891 for the clarinetist Richard Mühlfeld. It is scored for a clarinet in A with a string quartet. At the time Brahms started composing his Clarinet Quintet, only a few works had been composed for this type of ensemble. Examples of clarinet quintets include those by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Giacomo Meyerbeer and Alexander Glazunov. Brahms had retired from composing prior to listening to Richard Mühlfeld play. Brahms was very enthusiastic about Mühlfeld. That summer at Bad Ischl, he composed the Clarinet Quintet and his Clarinet Trio Op. 114, both of them for Mühlfeld. Brahms modeled his composition after Mozart’s.

FEBRUARY 1, 2021, @ 7 PM – Honoring Black History Month

CODED BIAS – Directed by Shalini Kantayya, follows MIT computer scientist Joy Buolamwini to explore how algorithms encode and propagate bias. Coded Bias is an American documentary film that premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. It was directed by Shalini Kantayya and follows researchers and advocates, principally MIT computer scientist Joy Buolamwini, as they explore how algorithms encode and propagate bias. Shalini Kantayya’s “Coded Bias” effectively brings to light a modern civil rights issue that can be proven with data—the bias within facial recognition programs, particularly against those who are not like the white men who originally formed such technology. (Such powerful data collecting and distributing technology is used in America by the likes of Amazon, Google, and Microsoft.)

With special talk back guests Mark A. Finlayson, Eminent Scholar Chaired Associate Professor of Computer Science at FIU’s School of Computing and Information, Gregory Johnson, a JSK Stanford Fellow and director of Code for South Florida and Ernie Hsiung, a 2015 Code for America fellow and instructor at Wyncode.

MARCH 1, 2021, @ 7 PM – Honoring International Women’s Month

THE ARTIST’S WIFE – Directed by Tom Dolby is about marriage, loyalty, love and rediscovering one’s passions. The greatest art is learning how to love. Claire Smythson, wife of the renowned abstract artist Richard Smythson, is plunged into a late-life crisis when her husband is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and is in danger of not completing the paintings for his final show. Claire attempts to shield his illness from the art community while trying to reconnect him with his estranged daughter and grandson. Claire, who has taken up painting once again, must decide whether to stand with her husband in the shadows or step into the spotlight herself.

Kareem Tabsch, award-winning filmmaker, and co-founder/director of O Cinema, will lead a conversation with Dr. William Vega, Distinguished Professor and Senior Scholar for Community Health, Florida International University and a member of the Us Against Alzheimers Advisory Board.

APRIL 5, 2021, @ 7 PM – Honoring National Poetry Month

A documentary that explores the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller as he shares intimate details of his battles with drug addiction, homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. Sacks, known for his literary works Awakenings and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, was a fearless explorer of unknown cognitive worlds who helped redefine our understanding of the brain and mind, the diversity of human experience, and our shared humanity. The film features exclusive interviews with Sacks conducted just weeks after he received a terminal diagnosis, and months prior to his death in August 2015.

Talk back guests are noted director Ric Burns in a conversation with Kareem Tabsch, award-winning filmmaker, and co-founder/director of O Cinema.

F11 AND BE THERE – Directed by Jethro Waters, iconic photographer Burk Uzzle comes to life as a prophet and historian, with his IP reflecting on major movements and events in American history and culture.This feature film by Jethro Waters about iconic photographer Burk Uzzle is an electrifying fusion of music, image, and dialogue. For 65 years and counting, Burk Uzzle has created some of the most iconic photographs in American history. From Martin Luther King Jr. to Woodstock to America’s small towns and back roads, Uzzle’s photographs provide a breathtaking commentary on American civil rights, race, social justice, and art. Initially grounded in documentary photography when he was the youngest photographer hired by LIFE magazine at age 23, his work grew into a combination of split-second impressions reflecting the human condition.

Arts Mean Business Speaker Series – Federico Uribe RESCHEDULED 2/11/21

Arts Mean Business Speaker Series – Federico Uribe
Thursday, 02/11/2021-, 06:00 pm-07:00 pm
Facebook
Cost: Free with RSVP

Business for the Arts Broward (BFA) kicks off the New Year with its ongoing Arts Mean Business Speaker Series (AMB) featuring a free virtual presentation and live Q&A with artist Federico Uribe.

Viewers who wish to attend must email their RSVP to rvegas@bfabroward.org by Wednesday, February 10 to receive the invitation link.

A native of Bogota, Colombia, Uribe has become a prominent artist featured in North and South America, Russia, England and Italy. After completing his studies at the University of Los Andes, he left Bogota in the late 1980s to pursue a master of fine arts degree in New York. After working and studying for many years in Cuba, Mexico, Russia and England, he finally settled in Miami, where he resides today.

Beginning his art career strictly as a painter who created sensual and brooding canvases influenced by his dark reflections on the Catholic sense of pain, guilt and sexuality, Uribe later expanded his work to create unique installations and sculptures in the mid-90s. His current work resists classification and emerges from intertwining everyday objects like bullet shells, pencils, neckties or electric wires in surprising ways to create boldly beautiful paintings and sculptures which become instruments of a new aesthetic, full of color, irony and lively playfulness.

AMB is just one of several ways BFA supports local artists while fostering cultural vitality, creative success and economic development. BFA continuously supports the local arts community and promotes local artists, cultural non-profits and diverse art-related projects. BFA annually hosts several events in addition to AMB, including Art & Soul, Art in the Workplace, Art Curation and Art+Stroll.

MOCA North Miami Hosts Haitian Independence Day Celebration Featuring Inez Barlatier, Jan Sebon and Fabienne Josaphat 1/1/21

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.

Camp Description

We’re excited to launch a robust online version of our signature summer cooking camps using live, interactive zoom lessons. Designed to provide children ages 8 to 15 the opportunity to gather together from the comforts of home as we have fun together in the Kitchen.

Limited-size live classes are full of excitement and connection, featuring two recipes each day. We’ll master new kitchen skills from reading recipes and measuring wet/dry ingredients to knife skills as we work our way towards Kitchen independence. Get ready for some kitchen fun – this will be the highlight of your week!

Winter Mystery Basket
Calling all chefs! Cooking shows have nothing on Taste Buds Kitchen’s tasty cooking extravaganzas. Join us as we cook our way through mystery baskets and surprise ingredients to prepare both savory and sweet treats while staying warm and cozy in your Kitchen. Who wouldn’t love to bake some delightful Cheese Twists to Pizza Cupcakes and Apple Spiced Cupcakes. Add your own spin on our classic recipes as you create something truly amazing. Let’s get cooking!

All recipes are vegetarian. If your family has food allergies, many recipes can be easily adjusted in your home to fit gluten-free, dairy-free or egg-free needs.

Registration is by the week.

What’s Included:

Live 2 hour camp experience Monday to Friday
Shopping list and recipes emailed prior
Ingredient Kit add-on available
Parents “How To” video with five tips on how to make our online experience as easy as possible for parents
How This Works

Live Online Class:
We’ll be sharing the same amazing culinary entertainment you’d get if you were in our Kitchen, except you can be in your jammies (no judgement here).

Participation:
Participation is for children with an adult present to chaperone and assist as needed. Siblings are welcome to cook together with sibling registration. Our goal is for the kids to do as much of the cooking as they can. Depending on the day we will be using knives, peelers, zesters/graters and the oven throughout our series so based on your child’s age and kitchen comfort, you will be their sous-chef as needed. Otherwise, we want parents to sit back and enjoy!

Shopping List & Ingredients
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a shopping list for the week along with the recipes so that you can purchase what you need to actively participate. Most ingredients are pantry staples and/or readily available in most grocery stores. OR, let us do the shopping and prep for you by adding on our weekly Ingredient Kit! Ingredient Kits include all ingredients (less milk) to make a family-sized portion of each recipe (i.e. 6 cupcakes). Ingredient Kits are available for those who register before 5pm on the Thursday before the camp week ahead.

Pick-Up or Delivery
Your Ingredient Kit if selected, will be available for pick-up from our Kitchen on the Sunday before your camp from 3-6pm. Delivery is also available for an additional fee.

Accessing the Class:
You will need to download the free Zoom app onto your desktop, tablet or phone before the class. You will receive a separate email that includes a Zoom link to our online class. We recommend joining from a laptop to see better but tablets work just fine as well. Please have all of your ingredients and equipment ready and waiting and your recipes out.

Spread the Word:
Please help us to spread the word to your friends and family (Referral reward of $5 for each family or friend that registers using your link). We’d love to have them cook along with us! Proceeds from online classes will go towards offsetting fixed overhead costs during this difficult time due to COVID-19. #supportsmallbusiness #TBKatHome

Want a private online class for you and your friends, an online birthday party for your child or a fun team-building corporate zoom call? We’d be happy to host you! Email miamiwest@tastebudskitchen.com to arrange.

Pinecrest Gardens presents “Banyan Bowl Live” featuring Kurt Elling

WHAT: Faced with canceling their all-star jazz series due to COVID-19, the village of Pinecrest, FL, has reimagined it as a livestream world-wide event and fundraiser for both Pinecrest Gardens and World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit founded by acclaimed international Chef José Andrés, feeding victims and medical personnel nationwide. The full series will feature Jon Secada, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Kurt Elling, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Wycliffe Gordon, Grace Kelly, Joey Alexander, and Manhattan Transfer. Tickets are $15 USD each or $87 for the entire series and may be purchased at https://jazzaid.eduvision.tv/liveevents

WHO: Renowned for his singular combination of robust swing and poetic insight, GRAMMY winner Kurt Elling has secured his place among the world’s foremost jazz vocalists. Declared “the standout male vocalist of our time” by The New York Times, Elling has garnered unprecedented accolades, including a fourteen-year run atop the DownBeat Critics Poll, a dozen GRAMMY nominations, and eight Jazz Journalists Association awards for “Male Singer of the Year.”

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

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

DETAILS: Elling’s most recent release, The Questions, searches for answers to the culture’s most divisive social, political and spiritual issues via the songs of Bob Dylan, Carla Bley and Leonard Bernstein, and the poetry of Rumi and Wallace Stevens. Whether transforming timeless standards or crafting his own enthralling originals, Elling balances elegant lyricism and technical mastery with emotional depth and keen observations into the human condition. “Since the mid-1990s,” hails the Washington Post, “[Elling] has come to embody the creative spirit in jazz.”

MC Laura Jennings

“A pop-soul superwoman…confidence and mastery.” – The New York Times

Acclaimed jazz recording artist Nicole Henry will premiere her virtual concert “I Sing Because I’m Happy” on Saturday, December 19th at 8pm EST. This 8th Annual Winter Concert, which is supported by presenting sponsor Savage Ticket and benefits Miami Music Project, a 501(c)(3) will be filmed outdoors at Pinecrest Gardens in Miami and will provide a safe, front-row seat to this six-camera, 8-piece band concert experience.

Artist Nicole Henry possesses dynamic vocal abilities, impeccable phrasing, and powerful emotional resonance.

Henry will celebrate the season of faith, joy and hope by sharing what inspires her to be happy in spite of the obvious challenges of the day. “I chose the theme, ‘I Sing Because I’m Happy’ because it’s been a year of uncertainty, loss and isolation, and we must make a conscious effort to stay connected with our happiness…collectively.” The concert will be hosted by award-winning TV personality Laurie Jennings and will feature a range of jazz, soul, pop, inspirational and holiday classics. Only one ticket is needed for each household and all ticket buyers will have the opportunity to watch through Dec. 26, 2020.
