BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival: Vijay Iyer, Joel Ross, Melanie Charles, Mahogany L. Browne

Doors 6:00 / Show 7:00

To commemorate and acknowledge the immense impact COVID-19 has had on the Jazz community, BRIC has commissioned four local artists to create new works meant to honor their beloved fellow musicians we lost to the pandemic. Each artist will premiere a new piece created with this intention as part of their set. VIJAY IYER, whom the NY Times called the "social conscience, multimedia collaborator, system builder, rhapsodist, historical thinker and multicultural gateway" of the NYC scene, headlines, with sets by vibes innovator JOEL ROSS, the singer and multi-instrumentalist MELANIE CHARLES, and the renowned poet, author and educator MAHOGANY BROWNE.

This is a free concert. RSVPS are not required, but highly encouraged. Entrance is first come, first served, and accessible to all.
