Don’t miss the school performance by Etienne Charles, Creole Soul! "Jazz is Creole music," says Charles who was born in Trinidad, relocated first to Florida and then New York to further his jazz studies (graduating, respectively, from Florida State's and Juilliard's jazz programs) and today teaches jazz trumpet at Michigan State University. "As a person in the new world, I've been influenced by so much music. And my family has a mixed background, with French Caribbean, Spanish and African roots as well as Venezuelan influences. I come from a fusion of rhythms, a fusion of cultures. That's what this album is all about: focusing on soul music that is Creole at heart."

EPHEMERAL: The Art of Jennifer Carwile & Kelsey Livingston at Kelwood Contemporary Art

Artists Carwile and Livingston approach their studio work in vastly different ways, but have found a common ground in the shared visual of the bird and the nest. For them it is a metaphor for everything that is important: control, anxiety, perception, reality, all of it. The nest is a stable fortress against the elements, until it isn't. The egg is an entire cosmos full of potential, up to a point. A bird is capable of controlling & altering their surroundings to suit their needs, for a time. At the heart of their work these artists deal with anxieties over global or universal truths that no one has real control over.
