Orchestra Miami presents Vivaldi’s Ring of Mystery, a theatrical concert about the life and music of Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi. Vivaldi’s Ring of Mystery is a compelling mystery about an orphan girl in the early 1700s who is in search of her roots. A central clue to the mystery is a missing Stradivarius violin that the Duke of Cremona has brought to Vivaldi’s school of the Pietá in the hopes of finding his long- lost grandchild.

Orchestra Miami, led by Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi perform this intriguing tale which features more than 25 excerpts from Vivaldi’s most popular works, including the Four Seasons, the Violin Concerto in A minor, and the Guitar Concerto. The music is magically woven into the drama as two actors solve a mystery built around the historic context of the composer’s real life and his school of the Pietá. Vivaldi’s Ring of Mystery is “an imaginative way to introduce young audiences and their families to the life and music of Antonio Vivaldi in a live performance venue.”

This exciting concert and story performance is approximately 50 minutes; Recommended for age six and up. Juice & cookies served after the performance!
Tickets start at just $8 for kids, $12 for seniors (65 & up) & $15 for Adults. Family Packs (2 kids + 2 adults) are available for just $39.  This concert is the first of four in Orchestra Miami’s Family Fun Series at Pinecrest Gardens.

Sunday September 26 from 4-7 PM: Global Arts Project and the Collins Park Neighborhood Association present a FREE concert in beautiful Collins Park, Collins Ave and 22 Street, Miami Beach.

Headed by director Germán Pinelli and featuring the incredible vocal talents of singers Ana Paez and Tirso Luis Paez, Los 3 de la Habana has hit the musical ground running, creating what has often been called “a sexy Cuban music experience born from Latin roots” that’s “super-vibrant and full of musical joy.” To its credit, the group has recorded six albums and is responsible for ear-catching hits like “No te Pases de la Raya,” “La Perdida,” “Luchando,” “Route 66,” “Santa is Coming to Town,” “Boy from New York City” and “One Way,” but what makes Los 3 de la Habana’s sound so very unique is its novel characteristics – something fundamentally different from what is traditionally aired on modern commercial radio.

The popularity of this incredibly talented orchestral act is surpassing even what its own founding members could have imagined, what with the incredibly positive feedback on Los 3 de la Habana’s YouTube channel and the sheer amount of download activity via Apple Music and Spotify. Indeed, this is the consummate embodiment of Cuban music fused with the power of Latin roots…and for the relentlessly hard-working members of Los 3 de la Habana, this foray is only just beginning.

3:30 -5 DJ LEO will be spinning for Fitness by Fernando Salsa Lessons!!!! During the show we will feature Professional Salsa Dancers to add to the fun! Food vendors will be onsite! Come and enjoy the Bass Museum Family day! Free admission and childrens activities!!

The show will also be livestreamed on Global Arts Project’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

Sometimes, inspiration is slow in coming, evasive, and stubborn. Other times, if an artist is very fortunate, it simply flows, the music practically writing itself. That’s how Solid, the latest release from Boney James came to be. “This record really flowed at an unusually quick pace,” Boney says. “There was a lot of positive energy in making this music. Solid is a very upbeat record. As I was writing them, these songs put a smile on my face.” Solid is the four-time Grammy-nominated saxophonist’s 17th album as a leader. Solid follows up his smash 2017 release Honestly, which became his 11th #1 Billboard Contemporary Jazz Album.

“My favorite singer….” Tony Bennett

Ever since he burst on the jazz scene in the latter part of the twentieth century, The Brooklyn-born, Harlem-based vocalist/guitarist/bandleader/composer Allan Harris has reigned supreme as the most accomplished and exceptional singer of his generation. Aptly described by the Miami Herald as an artist blessed with, “the warmth of Tony Bennett, the bite and rhythmic sense of Sinatra, and the sly elegance of Nat ‘King’ Cole,” the ample and aural evidence of Harris’ moving and magisterial artistry can be heard on his fourteen recordings as a leader; his far-flung and critically-acclaimed concerts around the world, from Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York, and Washington DC’s Kennedy Center, to the 2012 London Olympics, and many prestigious bookings in Europe, The Middle East and Asia. “I’m a storyteller through the genre of jazz.”

About Timbalive:

Timbalive is one of the largest and most successful groups of Timba in the United States and the world. The unique band sound, sophisticated production techniques, and a spectacular live show are second to none in the Latin Music scene. The band was created and burst onto South Florida’s music scene in August 2008, by Leo Garcia (timbales & director), offering the best of Cuban music with a mix of different rhythms from around the world. All the band’s members are highly trained musicians from the most prestigious music schools in Cuba and come from well-known groups from the Island.

Their first album, “From Miami a la Habana ” created one of the most unexpected successes in the Latin Music History in the United States. Through their vast discography, Cuban & Latin music hierarchy have shared studio sessions and stages with them. Such music giants names include: Amaury Gutierrez , Willy Chirino , Albita Rodriguez, Issac Delgado, Manolin (El Médico de la Salsa), Grupo Afrocuba, Carlos Manuel, Luis Enrique, Rey Ruiz, Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz, Pablo FG, Clave y Guaguanco, Oscar de Leon, Descemer Bueno, Mayito Rivera, Los 4, Pedrito Calvo, Roberton “Van Van” and Maykel Fonts among many others.

Timbalive has toured Europe, Mexico, Canada, South America, and multiple States in the US, making this band a reference for dancers and Timba lovers in several continents. Songs from their first album such as “El Dinero”, “Ave Maria Que – Calor”, and Como Miami No Hay Na” are still played by DJs in radio stations and night clubs worldwide, fulfilling Leo’s vision of having an international Timba band based in Miami.Twelve years later and five albums, this high-octane ten-member group kept enjoying great success among the Salsa circuit across Europe, South America, Cuba, and the U.S.

About Nic & N’Taya:

Nic & N’Taya is one of only a few bands that have managed successfully to produce a creative body of work in the extremely difficult Cuban Music environment of South Florida. Their last two critically acclaimed albums “#EstoEsUnMisil” y “Tu No Querias Changüí? Coje Changüí !” has been a testament that Timba y Changüí is alive and thriving in Miami.
Changüí is a style of Cuban music that originated in the early 19th century in the eastern region of Guantánamo Province, specifically Baracoa. It arose in the sugar cane refineries and in the rural communities populated by slaves. Changüí combines the structure and elements of Spain’s canción and the Spanish guitar with African rhythms and percussion instruments of Bantu origin. Changüí is considered a predecessor of son montuno (the ancestor of modern salsa), which has enjoyed tremendous popularity in Cuba throughout the 20th century. Timba is a Cuban genre of music based on popular Cuban music along with salsa, American funk/R&B, and the strong influence of Afro-Cuban folkloric music.

Timba rhythm sections differ from their salsa counterparts because timba emphasizes the bass drum, which is not used in salsa bands.
Here’s a sparkling high-voltage band lead by singer Nick “N’Taya ” Martinez who seems to have successfully channeled the spirit and drive of the Timba & Changüí genres to a new generation of Salsa dancers. N’Taya has created a thoroughly enjoyable sound that is perfectly suited for the dance club or your next Cuban or Latin party. Many Miami bands in the past have gotten our hopes up, only to break up. Hopefully, this one will stick around for a while. Stay tuned!

Pompano Beach Arts presents Karina Iglesias and the Nu-Thang

WHO: Karina Iglesias and the Nu-Thang

WHAT: A virtual concert

WHERE: from the Pompano Beach Cultural Center

WHEN: Saturday June 19, from 8 to 9:30 PM

WHY:In 2013, Karina was a contestant on NBC’s #1 Hit TV Show, The Voice. She made it to the Top 16 on the live shows. She was originally on Adam Levine’s team but was later stolen by Shakira after her epic performance of “Its a man’s, man’s, man’s world” which turned into a YouTube sensation. With her highly-focused artistic vision, rich cultural background and proclivity for harnessing a wide range of production techniques, Karina Iglesias brings forth a strong element of innovation and heralds a much-needed return to the authenticity of pure soul music.

Born and raised in Miami, Florida to Honduran parents, Karina Iglesias’ sound mirrors the diverse musical and cultural influences that have shaped her character and forged her individuality as an artist. With a style equally informed by rhythm and blues, boleros, gospel and hip-hop Karina delivers her performances with the intimacy of a deep soul crooner and the conviction and drive of a dauntless female singer/songwriter.

A veteran of the Miami live music scene, Karina began writing songs during the time she started working extensively with local bands. It soon became apparent that through composing original material, her true artistic identity had emerged. Her emotionally charged and deeply personal lyrics now revealed a depth of character and vulnerability that can only be conveyed when a singer truly connects with their song. Hosted by Tamara G of WLYF 101.5

TICKETS: Available for $15 at http://pompanobeacharts.org/programs/music-series
Note: Tickets are valid for the following two weeks.

Three dynamic, powerful performers — singers, musicians, and songwriters Yusa, Inez Barlatier, and Keba— headline the concert Women of the Caribbean, a musical celebration staged outdoors, in the Koubek’s Gardens, marking the re-opening of the Koubek for limited-capacity audiences following COVID-19 guidelines.

Yusa is a Cuban multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, lyricist, arranger, and composer powerhouse. Her work suggests a deep knowledge of Cuban musical traditions such as son and trova, but updated with elements of jazz, pop, and R&B. A classical guitarist by training, Yusa specialized early on in the tres, a small six-string guitar-like instrument that is the defining sound of Cuban son, and later incorporated in her music electric bass, keyboard and percussion instruments.

The sound of Trinidad-born singer and songwriter Keba is a lived-in blend of classic soul, R&B, and pop, she mentions artists such as Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin as references, mixed with her own rhythmic sense. She has described her lyrics as a mix of “raw vulnerability with a playful exploration of love, femininity and identity as a first-generation immigrant and millennial”.

Miami’s own Haitian-American Inez Barlatier is a multi-disciplinary artist and educator. Accompanying herself on guitar, her rich, expressive voice, storytelling lyrics, and on-stage presence evokes the work of folk music-based artists such as Tracy Chapman and Joan Armatrading.

To ensure the health and safety of all guests and staff in attendance, guests must purchase tickets in advance, and be ready to present their E-ticket on their mobile device at the door, for a contactless experience. All attendees are required to adhere to social distancing guidelines (6 ft.) and wear the appropriate facial coverings correctly throughout the event, except when eating or drinking.

On Friday, April 30 at 7:00 p.m., the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) presents Lando & The Infinite Sadness as part of its monthly “Virtual Jazz at MOCA” series. Lando & The Infinite Sadness melds jazz, down tempo beats, and soul together for a beautiful listening experience. “The musical conception of Josue Vargas and Ben Stocker, Lando & The Infinite Sadness was born bouncing ideas over emails between Pembroke Pines, Florida, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With aspirations of writing soundtracks in film and working with admired artists, Vargas and Stocker have created an alternate world of their own of gloomy polyphonic dissonance later accompanied by avant-garde moments of vividly colored peace.” J. Bobman, Artist Bio (2020)

Since the onset of COVID-19, MOCA suspended the Jazz at MOCA concert series due to health protocols. 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. Hosted by WDNA’s Carter Jackson-Brown, the virtual series will feature the best of South Florida’s young and innovative musicians.

If 2020 has proven anything, it’s that people really love music; Trillerfest Miami is giving people the opportunity to enjoy live, in-person concerts once again while promoting social distancing. The two-day music festival is guaranteed to rock your soul with your favorite Hip Hop hits and Latin music. Headlining the first night is five-time Grammy-winning hip-hop star Lil Wayne who will perform a one-hour set packed with some of his greatest hits. Grammy-winning 2 Chainz will also perform an hour-long set, while Tyga and Cris Cab will share their music with fans in 45-minute performances. Headlining on the second night is Cris Cab followed by Grammy-winning Gente de Zona y sus amigos.

On May 1st the seating will be formatted in three different tiers, 1, 2 & 3, pod-style. Guests will purchase individual tickets depending on the tier they would like to choose, each pod-style tier has different prices and fits up to six people. All pod tiers are first come, first serve; there will also be a limited quantity of rentable chairs available, first-come, first-serve. Each guest pod provides room for up to six guests and will be spaced apart from other pods, allowing the venue to maintain the recommended distance between groups. Guests will drive into the Marine Stadium grounds, park, walk to their designated pod and enjoy an amazing show while ensuring that social distancing protocols are followed.

On May 2nd the event will be a drive-in format. Concert-goers can expect a unique tailgate experience with back-to-back live performances from the comfort of their car and a private space situated next to their vehicle, 15×15 (including car), up to six guests are allowed per vehicle. The drive-in format will be set to fit approximately 1000 cars to safely watch the festival in person.

“We look forward to bringing the Miami community an incredible live concert experience, which we know music fans have been desperately missing over the past year,” said Bobby Sarnevesht, Chairman of Triller.

Trillerfest Miami’s ultimate goal is to deliver a unique, safe, and viable alternative to the “normal” concert-going experience, pod, and drive-in tailgate format! On both days, attendees can bring their food, drinks, and portable chairs to set up in their designated area where they will have a view of the live performance on stage and the large side screens. Food & beverages will be available for purchase via local food trucks, so fans can get a flare for the local Miami cuisine. For those looking for more than just GA tickets, Trillerfest will also offer VIP packages and preferred packages for the public. VIP tickets will be closer to the stage with prime viewing, bottle service, private bathrooms, VIP bar, exclusive Triller merch, highboys with up to five stools, and expedited VIP service.

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: $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.

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.

Since the onset of COVID-19, MOCA suspended the Jazz at MOCA concert series due to health protocols. 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.

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.

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

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.
