Music is Life
(Published: March 26, 2011)

Press Release

THE WILLIAMSBURG MUSIC CENTER (WMC)
367 Bedford Avenue
Brooklyn NY 11211
718-384-1654
wmcjazz.org
Presents
"MUSIC IS LIFE"
opening on
May 20th, 2011 8pm-until closing

Helene Ruiz will be bringing back her multi-media and international artists collective ‘THE URBAN INDIVIDUALISTS' and their artist affiliates to WMC with music themed and music inspired artworks paying tribute and homage to musician and composer, the great Mr. Gerry Eastman and "The Williamsburg Music Center", founded by Mr. Eastman in 1981. WMC exists to foster the creation, performance and appreciation of American Classic Music. It is Brooklyn's only black-owned and operated non-profit jazz institution, and the only one in New York City that offers classes and workshops in jazz performance and history.
This exhibit will formally open on Friday, May 20, 2011 at 8pm and will be accompanied with live music provided by Gerry Eastman's band. A minimal donation of $5 at the door and a 2 drink minimum at the bar will go to WMC in order to help continue its mission to further the development of aspiring jazz composers and provide forum for new jazz works to be polished and performed and to continue offering classes in Music, Music Theory and Vocal technique. Eight children's scholarships are made available each season as well.
We invite all to come and support the mission and efforts in making education and culture a voice through the arts and to share an exciting, culturally rich and inspiring event.
