Friday, June 12 at 4:00 PM - Don't miss Maestro Robert W. Butts and musicians of BONJ together with Jee-Hoon Krska and Keys 2 Success for a special Facebook Live Video Premiere.

Friday's broadcast is the final in a series of Friday afternoon shows featuring the young artists of Keys 2 Success.

Jee-Hoon Krska founded Keys 2 Success in 2016.  Together with her dedicated staff, she has made a difference in the lives of many youngsters in Newark through music and learning to play the piano.

In June 2019, several of these young artists performed at Dolan Hall to open the second half of the BONJ concert where they had the opportunity to play, watch the concert, and meet internationally acclaimed pianist Paul Zeigler who played the solo part in George Gershwin's magnificent Piano Concerto in F.

Taking the innovative collaboration one step further, Maestro Butts and Maestra Krska worked with young Newark composer Elijah Souels to create an arrangement of Simple Gifts which the young students were to play with the orchestra at our April concert.   Even though that concert had to be postponed, everybody has worked to bring the music together through having individuals record their parts, then putting the videos together to create a concert performance.  Hopefully, when concerts resume, we will give the live concert premiere together.

The show will also be accessible through YouTube - link to be determined and available here Friday morning June 12.

Following the premiere broadcast, the show will be posted on Facebook and Youtube.

You need to be on Facebook to see any Facebook links.   Youtube links are open to everybody.
