April 21, 2016 will live in infamy as the day we lost a genius, an icon, a legend. Prince is widely regarded as one of the best musicians ever to live, and one of the greatest showmen of all time. His music makes up the soundtracks of our lives—from the parties of our youth to our weddings; and we share his music with our children who repeat the cycle. Great music lives on forever, and, it’s with this in mind that we introduce 4U: A Symphonic Celebration of Prince. The first and only estate-approved Prince celebration, 4U will present the music of Prince like never before, with a full symphony orchestra. Throughout the course of the evening Prince’s extensive musical catalog will be represented, we’ll hear his greatest hits as well as some of his lesser known gems in this musical celebration. Questlove, an avid Prince fan, has helped curate the music and arrangements that will be played by the symphony.
This event is being rescheduled due to a travel conflict. Anyone who registered to attend will receive an e-mail about the new date and time once it is solidified. This registration page will be updated ASAP. Futureface A Family Mystery, an Epic Quest, and the Secret to Belonging Alex Wagner is co-host of Showtime’s The Circus and a contributor to CBS News and The Atlantic. She was formerly the host of MSNBC’s Emmy-nominated Now with Alex Wagner. Now the acclaimed journalist travels the globe to solve the mystery of her ancestry, confronting the question at the heart of the American experience of immigration, race, and identity: Who are my people? Alex Wagner has always been fascinated by stories of exile and migration. Her father’s ancestors immigrated to the United States from Ireland and Luxembourg. Her mother fled Rangoon in the 1960s, escaping Burma’s military dictatorship. In her professional life, Wagner reported from the Arizona-Mexico border, where agents, drones, cameras, and military hardware guarded the line between two nations. She listened to debates about whether the United States should be a melting pot or a salad bowl. She knew that moving from one land to another—and the accompanying recombination of individual and tribal identities—was the story of America. And she was happy that her own mixed-race ancestry and late twentieth-century education had taught her that identity is mutable and meaningless, a thing we make rather than a thing we are. When the possibility of an exciting new twist in her already complex family history was mentioned, Wagner was suddenly awakened to her own deep hunger to be something, to belong, to have an identity that mattered, a tribe of her own. Intoxicated by the possibility, she became determined to investigate her genealogy. The journey takes Wagner across oceans and she begins to grapple with a deeper question: Does it matter? Is our enduring obsession with blood and land, race and identity, worth all the trouble it’s caused us? The answers can be found in this deeply personal account of her search for belonging, a meditation on the things that define us as insiders and outsiders and make us think in terms of “us” and “them.” In this time of conflict over who we are as a country, when so much emphasis is placed on ethnic, religious, and national divisions, Futureface constructs a narrative where we all belong. Alex will be in conversation with a TBA partner at the event. The event is free thanks to our Series sponsors The Montclair Foundation and Investors Foundation, but registration below is strongly...
Ethical Brew is proud to present: Claude Bourbon: Medieval & Spanish Blues + It Had To Be You -- Gypsy Jazz band! Claude Bourbon Ready for a unique and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions? Claude Bourbon is known throughout Europe and America for amazing guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, and Middle Eastern stylings into uncharted territories. Claude's inimitable style incorporates all five digits on each hand dancing independently but in unison, plucking, picking and strumming at such speed and precision that his fingers often seem to melt into a blur. Thousands of people in the UK, Europe and USA have enjoyed listening to this virtuoso and for the majority of his audience it is an experience that compels them to return again and again to hear and watch him play, as his fingers lightly dance over the strings of his guitar and create a unique sound that is 'Claude'. It is very hard to describe the almost endless amalgam of different influences in Claude's playing, all melting into each other, as he moves from classical openings, across a whole continent of cultural roots, from the Balearic's to the Balkans, and then across to the Mississippi Delta, and shoehorned into all that is music that would not have been out of place in the courts of Emperors and Kings. Claude Bourbon weaved his songs through the audience as if on a journey through life taking in different flavours of Europe and beyond. His Spanish medieval blues evolved into Gypsy, Eastern European, with a splash of Paco de Lucia, Delta Blues and more. Holding audience attention under a musical spell. It's not easy to begin to describe the breadth or mastery of the music you will hear if you are fortunate to catch one of Claude's gigs, it is a sort of sensory experience like no other. A top master of his craft and never appearing to be rushed, he has impeccable timing and makes things that one can only marvel at seem simple. Now based in the UK, some of this guitarists' influences allow us a fascinating insight into this remarkable musician; Paco De Lucia: Deep Purple's Richie Blackmore; Joaquin Rodrigo; JJ Cale; JS Bach.... Claude has played countless venues, including Glastonbury Festival, Isle of Wight Festival, Colne Great British & Blues Festival, Rock O'Z Arene, Avenches, Switzerland, among others. He has shared the stage in Europe and the USA with countless musicians, Calvin Russel, Charlie Morgan (Elton John, Gary Moore), Jan Akkerman (Focus), Steve Grossman (Miles Davis), Herbie Armstrong ( Van Morisson), Jose barrense Dias and many more.

Don’t miss the fourth installment of Harry Potter in Concert when NJPAC hosts the full-length film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, projected in high-definition on a giant screen, with Oscar-nominated composer Patrick Doyle’s masterful score performed live by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. In J.K. Rowling’s fourth adventure in the Harry Potter series, our title hero is mysteriously entered into the Triwizard Tournament, a grueling contest among three wizarding schools in which he confronts a dragon, water demons, and an enchanted maze – only to find himself in Lord Voldemort’s grasp. All will change when Harry, Ron and Hermione leave childhood forever and face challenges beyond their imagining. Since its debut on the page and then on the big screen, the magical Harry Potter series has reached hundreds of millions of people around the world, making it one of the most beloved franchises in entertainment history. The rich tapestry of music composed for Goblet of Fire by Patrick Doyle (Brave, Sense and Sensibility) brought fresh emotional gravitas to the series, with darker melodic undercurrents as Harry Potter, Ron, and Hermione face their new adventures. For his effort, Doyle won both the International Film Music Critics Award and the ASCAP Film & Television Music Award. Subscribe to the 2018-19 Orchestra + Film Concert Series for as low as $175!
