This homage to Black Music features an ensemble of exceptionally gifted young musicians who will perform innovative and legendary works of jazz from bebop to avant garde and beyond, from the 20th century to the present. Marcus is a saxophonist, composer, improviser, and educator, who the Detroit Free Press says, “represents the next generation of jazz.”

A leader and co-leader in many Detroit-based bands, Elliot is a Fellow of the Geri Allen Gathering Orchestra, co-founder of the nonprofit Polyfold Musical Arts Collective, and director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s Civic Jazz Ensembles. He received his master’s degree in improvisation from the University of Michigan.

Marcus travels the world with trumpeter Anthony Stanco as a musical ambassador through the program American Voices. During his travels, Elliot has collaborated with musicians from South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Egypt, Jordan, Indonesia, and Kyrgyzstan. 

Tickets: $50; VIP seating in front rows with additional leg room, early admission, first on line for dinner: $60.
