Montclair Early Music
Explore the unique history of spiritual, folk, and jazz music through the ages.
The concert will feature selections by renowned Black Composers and performances by jazz pianist Michael David Cochrane, bass player Michael Logan, tenor soloist Jeremy Watson, and our new Artistic Director Louisa Valentin as soprano soloist.
Some selections date back to the joyous African rhythms and others are more current with the smooth melodies of modern Jazz.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit Friends of the Howe House, a Montclair non-profit organization committed to preserving the historic house of James Howe, a formerly enslaved man who was freed in 1817.
Support this great cause and enjoy an afternoon of music and song!
