SIMONE MORRIS TRIO
SATURDAY  FEBRUARY 27TH  |
Soulful, sultry, subtle, powerful - these are words that best describe the vocal style that Simone brings to her performances with The Simone Morris Trio.  Her innate musicality and passion for music were evident at an early age, developed through decades as a pianist, and now form the basis of intimate & evocative style and delivery. At Toronto's York University she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music with a focus in contemporary piano improvisation.  As a member of, and soloist in, the York University Jazz Choir ("Wibijazz'n'”), Simone changed her focus and honed her chops, beginning her lifelong journey as a vocalist. Drawing on many vocal influences across genres - from Anita O'Day, Sarah Vaughan and Nina Simone to Joni Mitchell, Diana Krall, Etta James and Ray Charles - Simone is known for her stirring and soulful performances.  Her tone is alluring, sultry, and powerful in its conviction, and memorable long

globalFest On The Road: Creole Carnival @ Winter Garden Theatre, Toronto, ON - Tues Feb 23rd!



Massey Hall presents globalFest On The Road: Creole Carnival at the Winter Garden Theatre, 189 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON

Hosted by Jay Douglas Featuring Emeline Michel, Casuarina and Kobo Town

Celebrate the art of celebration with the Creole Carnival Tour. The show honors the roots of African musical currents crossed with a fusion of sounds from the Americas and revolving around Carnival, the pre-Lent festival celebrated globally that’s everyone's favorite excuse for a party. Each country has its own rich celebratory traditions, and this show spotlights Brazilian, Haitian and Trinidadian expressions with an eclectic, entertaining and engaging international trio of performers. Participating artists explore, expand and upend notions of Carnival without losing sight of where magic and religious fervor intersect with a madcap, no-holds-barred soiree: Haiti’s Emeline Michel is the reigning Queen of Haitian songs; Casuarina are Rio’s innovative samba masters, and Kobo Town.

FRONT ROOM @ St Peter & Paul Banquet Hall, Scarborough, ON - Sun Feb 21st!


On Sunday February 21, 2016, at 6PM, The Alliance of Jamaican Alumni Associations (Toronto) – AJAA, will present Marcia Brown Productions theatrical stage play “FRONT ROOM” as a fund raising venture!!

AJAA is a charitable umbrella organization comprised of forty (40) Toronto-based alumni associations affiliated with educational institutions in Jamaica. AJAA was organized in 1988, and since then it has been involved in administering the educational activities of alumni associations in Toronto.

Through the dedicated efforts of the AJAA and these alumni associations; organizing fund-raising events such as this, financial scholarships are awarded annually to students pursuing High School and Post Secondary studies in Canada and Jamaica.

Front Room is a slice of Jamaican life that is nostalgic, spirited, tangy, real and hilariously funny. Set in the inner city of down-town Kingston, Front Room gives an authentic view of a tenement yard situation when the biggest room in the yard becomes vacant.

This front room carries a perception of prestige and is the envy to not only the tenants in the yard but the entire area. Miss Pinky (a tenant in the yard), a bible touting born again Christian firmly believes she is next in line to get the front room given her “hush-hush” relationship with the landlord Mr. Keys. It would also create a good impression on her niece Peaches who will be coming from the country to stay with her while she attends nursing school in Kingston.

Miss Pinky is therefore very infuriated when she is side stepped by Mr. Keys and the front room is rented to a total stranger, Miss Melva. These are all the ingredients needed for a roller-coaster ride filled with drama and laughter, all larger and more genuine than life itself.

It is the tug-an-war for the front room that develops the characters and scenes in Front Room. Of course there are conflicts in relationships among the people, but this does not prevent the community from uniting itself when a member of the yard is threatened. It is the Jamaica of today that is mirrored in ‘Front Room’, the real builders, the real people who stalwartly take life’s problems as they come, solve them the best way possible and move on in their particular way of improving their quality of life.
