Delaware Chamber Music Festival FREE Jazz Concert
Jun 24 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The Delaware Chamber Music Festival (DCMF) 32nd Season’s special addition to this season is a collaborative jazz-themed performance with Light Up The Queen Foundation’s Boysie Lowery Living Jazz Residency directed by Jonathan Whitney. “I’m curious to experience the works that will be composed for us by these young artists,” says Barbara Govatos, DCMF Artistic Director. “We literally won’t know what we are playing and in what combinations we’ll be asked to play until perhaps the week before our first rehearsal with them.”

Govatos notes that it’s exciting for her and members of the Festival Quartet to work in this fresh, unpredictable way and afford young composers the opportunity to hear and rehearse their works with professional artists and present first performances to discerning audiences. The jazz concert will not only feature Boysie Lowery students but also the Festival Quartet, guest pianist Julie Nishimura, guest double bassist Douglas Mapp and guest contralto Tina Betz, who will perform on Whitney’s new arrangement, Strange Fruit for strings.

The free jazz concert will be held Saturday, June 24, 4:00pm at The Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew, 719 N. Shipley Street in downtown Wilmington.

The regular Delaware Chamber Music Festival series dates will be held at Wilmington Friends Lower School. Tickets for the Festival may be ordered by downloading an order form at dcmf.org. Checks and order forms may be mailed to the Festival at P.O. Box 3537, Wilmington DE, 19807. There are no advance online ticket sales, but tickets also will be available for purchase via cash or check at the door of each performance.

For full season details, visit www.dcmf.org or call the Festival Hotline at 302.442.0572.

Free Reign Hip Hop Festival
Jul 14 @ 4:00 pm – Jul 16 @ 9:00 pm
Free Reign Hip Hop Festival is an intimate 3-day mid-season festival in the city center of Wilmington, DE , Rodney Square. A dedicated music, dance and arts event, it’s a festival with a difference. The thick air of excitement hits you the moment you arrive in the event arena. Free Reign hosts the first professional-amateur dance competitions in the city in the last 30+ years and hosts a one-of-a-kind music competition that is guaranteed to entertain all those in attendance.
July 14 4-9 pm – Break N’ Style All Styles dance competition
July 15 4-9 pm – Break N’ Styles Bboy/Girl dance competition
It has been over 30 years since Delaware has hosted a major dance competition.  One that has not only brought the community together but has also brought people from out of state all in the name of camaraderie.  These first two days do just that!  You will be amazed at the local talent and see what our neighbors in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and more have to offer as they all compete for the coveted Free Reign prize pack.
July 16 4-9 pm – The Emcees Reign
An emcee competition like this has not been done since the birth of hip hop.  The Emcees Reign is as much about the lyrics as it is about the show.  Thus pushing the artists creativity to new levels.  This day will bring showmanship to another level which will work out well for the artist and more for the audience since you all will be the judges!
In addition to these exciting main events there will also be live spray paint art, free giveaways, hip hop dance workshops, spray paint workshops, food trucks, vendors and more.
Event is Free!  We will also be taking donations for our scholarship fund.  The Street Xpressions scholarship fund goes towards aiding our students who are in financial hardship to attend classes.
Interested in joining one of the competitions:  Free Reign Hip Hop Fest Event Page
Want to learn about the hosting sponsor:  Street Xpressions
