On Saturday, May 21st, 2016 @ 7pm, the Brooklyn Music School will host its first B.I.G Birthday Celebration paying homage to local hip-hop legend Notorious B.I.G. The event is billed as Juicy: A B.I.G Celebration. The birthday party celebration will feature music by DJ Pudge & live covers of Biggie classics by The Sus.Life Collective & friends. There will be rap cyphers lead by local hip-hop artists, but open to all that attend. There will also be birthday cake, refreshments and love being spread, the Brooklyn way.
Admission is only $5.
Since 1909, BMS has educated the borough and beyond with quality music and dance instruction for both children and adults in a variety of instruments and genres especially classical, rock and jazz, but has also recently developed programs in world music, hip-hop and music technology. “Everyone at BMS is excited to build awareness and educate our students/community by honoring one of Brooklyn’s most accomplished artists who grew up just blocks from our school and who made such a dramatic contribution to music in such a short time. Biggie’s music needs to be canonized in the same vein in which we teach Bach, Mozart, Ellington, Coltrane, Motown, The Beatles, Nirvana, etc,” says BMS Executive Director Piruz Partow.
BMS asks that parents use discretion in bringing their children.
