Jazz on the Streets of Old Detroit

September 27, 2018 @ 6:00 pm 9:00 pm

Join the Black Historic Sites Committee as we celebrate scintillating jazz as performed by Modern Element, a dynamic group of young musicians, on Thursday, September 27. This band features Trunino Lowe on trumpet and Benny Rubin, Jr. on alto saxophone, among others.

Tickets: $15 in advance, $20 at the door

Modern Element was formed by six students from the Detroit School of Fine and Performing Arts who decided to band together because of their mutual love and passion for performing music that spans all types of genres.

This brotherhood of young musicians is ready to bring The Streets of Old Detroit alive with their interpretation of jazz that has reverberated throughout the city for decades. It is easy to see how this group of young lions continues Detroit’s legacy of vibrant jazz that will continue for decades more.

Their music is phenomenally played, with the vibrancy of youth but overflowing with experience beyond their years. Last year, Modern Element performed at venues that included Cliff Bell’s and the Jazz Café Detroit.

The Black Historic Sites Committee looks forward to seeing you at this upcoming concert. Your support will help us keep Detroit’s jazz traditions alive as this brotherhood of young musicians build upon our musical heritage. Light refreshments are included in the ticket price. Contact Public Programs Coordinator Charnae Sanders at 313.833.0277 for questions or to order tickets by phone.

$15 – $20 Advance Tickets $15; at the door $20
