Description


In celebration of the 39th annual Black Music Month running throughout June, The Blackhurst Gallery, A Different Booklist Cultural Centre will host a very special month long event. For the first time since his passing on Jun 8, 2015, the late Archie Alleyne, Order of Canada recipient, jazz drummer extraordinaire and educator’s celebrated photo exhibition, "Syncopation, Life in the Key of Black" will again be exhibited.
Consisting of photographic artifacts compiled over the course of Mr. Alleyne’s illustrious musical career, "Syncopation, Life in the Key of Black" consists of photographs and accompanying biographies celebrating the achievements, recognizing the struggles and saluting contributions of Black musicians throughout the country.
Jazz historian and longtime jazz critic for the Globe and Mail, Mark Miller, described "Syncopation, Life in the Key of Black" as “A necessary and valuable reminder of the significant role African-Canadians played in the history of jazz and R&B in Canada".
The Opening Reception will be a two-hour wine and hors d' oeuvres event featuring the exhibit and musical entertainment by the Evolution of Jazz Ensemble.
The proceeds from this event are in support of the Archie Alleyne Scholarship Fund. All donations are welcome.
