Virtual Jazz at MOCA Featuring Melanie Charles
March 26 - 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
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.
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. Hosted by WDNA’s Carter Jackson-Brown, the virtual series will feature the best of South Florida’s young and innovative musicians. The concert will take place virtually on the last Friday of every month at 7:00 p.m.
Viewers do not have to leave the comfort of their homes to enjoy her sound! To watch live, guests may visit https://mocanomi.org/virtual-jazz-at-moca/
The program is free to attend.
