Black Rock Coalition Orchestra

FRI, Nov 7, 2008
7–8 pm

The BRC launches its residency on November 7 with “Memphis Remixed: Experiments with Color Negatives,” a re-imagining of seminal musical works drawn from the Hi Records and Stax Records catalogs. Each following Friday features stylized tributes to key figures from the Memphis music scene, a movement significant to Eggleston’s artistic evolution and the Black experience in the post-Civil Rights Era.

The Black Rock Coalition is a non-profit, member-supported organization founded to facilitate the development, exposure, and acceptance of Black alternative music and its creators. Founded in 1985 by guitarist Vernon Reid, journalist Greg Tate, and producer Konda Mason, the BRC is a collective of artists, writers, producers, publicists, activists, and music fans assembled to maximize exposure and provide resources for Black artists who defy convention. To date, the BRC is the only national nonprofit organization dedicated to the complete creative freedom of Black artists.
