MONTCLAIR ORCHESTRA PRESENTS “A Performance Cut Short”

A FIDDLER’S TALE

For this week’s video release, we offer the following musical remembrance in honor of George Floyd and the many other Black people who have been victimized by racial violence in America.

This excerpt of Wynton Marsalis’s “A Fiddler’s Tale” comes from a concert at Montclair State University on February 25, 2018, and is narrated by Melissa Walker of Jazz House Kids.

The performance has intentionally been truncated at the 8’46” mark to represent a life cut cruelly and undeservedly short. #BlackLivesMatter #TakeTwoKnees #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd
