NCMOH Jazz Series presents a free, virtual, Concert with Conversation.
Get in the mood for Black History Month and this year’s virtual African American Cultural Celebration with a live-streamed program featuring Brown and his quintet. The concert takes place Thursday, January 28, 2021, beginning at 7 p.m. via Zoom. Expect a range of songs, each written by an artist with North Carolina ties, and information about each composer along with the performances. A Q&A session will close out the evening.
A native of Fayetteville, John V. Brown has played at major venues and festivals in the United States and abroad with a number of headlining artists, and he has garnered extensive performance experience with feature films, television movies, theater productions, and sound recordings. He boasts a Grammy nomination for performing and co-writing, as well as a seat on juries that awarded the 2017 and 2019 Pulitzer Prizes in music and service on several grant panels for the National Endowment for the Arts and the North Carolina Arts Council.
Brown is currently director of the jazz program at Duke University and has previous affiliations with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University, and Guilford College.
