Early Music with Night's Black Bird on Mar. 10

Brattleboro, Vt. - At 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 10, tri-state fans of Early Music are invited to a benefit concert of "Airs, Arias, Madrigals & Tonos" at All Souls Church Unitarian Universalist, 29 South St., West Brattleboro.

The Night's Black Bird trio, from Allentown, Penn., offers a program of 16th- and 17th-century songs with accompaniment on lute, Baroque guitar, and bass viola da gamba. Developed with some grant assistance, the repertoire includes works by Giulio Caccini, Thomas Campion, John Dowland, José Marín, Claudio Monteverdi, and Philip Rosseter.

Vermont Jazz Center Presents: Jazzmeia Horn

Winner of the Thelonious Monk and Sarah Vaughan Competitions, Jazzmeia Horn, to Perform at the Vermont Jazz Center on Saturday, March 10th, 2018 at 8:00 PM

The Vermont Jazz Center will present Jazzmeia Horn singing with a quartet on March 10th at 8:00 PM.  Ms. Horn is the winner of the 2015 Thelonious Monk Vocal Contest and the 2013 Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Competition. “My name is Jazzmeia Horn and that is not a mistake,” she says. “God does not make mistakes.”  This powerful statement is backed up by the truth: she is a naturally gifted musician who grew up in a family passionately rooted in gospel music; her grandmother, a jazz-loving pianist, gave Horn her name. “I guess she knew I was going to be a musical child,” claims Horn’s grandmother. Time has proved her grandmother right – Horn’s innate musicality combined with hard work have earned her numerous awards and the opportunity to perform with legendary musicians like Junior Mance, Billy Harper, Peter Bernstein, Vincent Herring, Kirk Lightsey, Frank Wess, Ellis Marsalis and many others.
