The Reading Terminal Market and Philadelphia Jazz Project Present A FREE POP UP CONCERT, featuring the debut of Polished Brass Ensemble performing a Francis Johnson composition, arranged by musician/educator, Jay Fluellen.

 

Polished Brass at The Reading Terminal Market: A Spontaneous Musical Combustion is a special 25 minute, Jazz Month Pop Up concert with a special brass-based group, called the Polished Brass Ensemble. The concert will celebrate the music of the influential, but sometimes, forgotten Philadelphia music pioneer, Francis Johnson.

 

Francis Johnson Factoids:

▪ Born 1792 - Died 1844

▪ First Black American to have his music published in America

▪ First American musician to tour Europe

▪ Played for Queen Victoria in the UK

▪ Early adopter of the Keyed Bugle - Precursor to the Trumpet

▪ Introduced Americans to the Promenade, or the Prom…Yes. The Prom!!

▪ One of the first musicians to play music with treatments, that would be later called Jazz

 

The song to be performed is entitled, "Honor To The Brave" written by Francis Johnson in 1824. Also called "General Lafayette's Grand March For Band." The ensemble will interpret the song in a contemporary fashion, while honoring the key innovations introduced by Johnson.

Philly Jazz Quotes

Jazz is a phenomenon. …it's an element that was created that almost lacks definition. Because it's endless.
