Born at a Mardi Gras party in Portland, Oregon, MarchFourth Marching Band has become one of the nation's best live touring acts -- and you can catch them outdoors on Pier 15 backed by beautiful waterfront views. More than just a concert, a MarchFourth show is a celebration, with stilt-walkers, unicyclists, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, clown antics, acrobatics and more, accompanied by an eclectic big band in marching band costumes. Anchored by funky electric bass and featuring a 12-piece horn section and a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, MarchFourth takes you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of Eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, while honoring the musical traditions of American funk, rock and jazz. Opening for MarchFourth is Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution, a foot-stompin' gumbo of roots rock, old-school soul and New Orleans rhythms. Learn More

Karl Jenkins is the most popular living composer on the planet, yet his work remains under-appreciated in America, perhaps, due to the lack of exposure. This annual concert at Carnegie Hall on MLK Jr. Day is always a wonderful opportunity to hear his latest work as well as one of his older pieces. These massive choral pieces are incredibly beautiful and very well sung and performed. It was a special tribute to a fine composer on his 70th birthday.
