The genius of Mason Jennings' music is its honesty: Only the very young or very courageous can afford to be so frank about themselves and the world. Still, after eleven albums, Jennings continues to be true to his experience, crafting songs that are equally striking and simple. No wonder this indie-troubadour sold 30,000 copies of his first two albums without a big label or P.R. push -- the music sold itself. Now, years later and with a loyal cult following, Jennings is touring the country in support of his latest effort, the critically lauded Always Been. While building on Jennings' rugged, acoustic early work, the album explores sunnier melodies and inspiring love songs. Watch this earnest and soulful artist perform live at the South Orange Performing Arts Center. Learn More

Loved Jil Aigrot's concert at SOPAC. Beautiful performance combined with Jil's warmth of personality and ability to involve and include audience made for a wonderful evening. Terrific seats second row center! Plan to attend her next appearance in two years.

Jil Aigrot, the singing voice of Edith Piaf in the movie, La Vie En Rose, is as passionate and magnificent in concert with her homage to Piaf as she is on film. She channels Piaf’s sound and body language with natural grace, and between each song she talks to the audience in her own natural voice. In her superb program all of the great Piaf songs are not only relived but given a special magic with Aigrot’s stunning voice.
Raised in the south of France, Aigrot specializes in the art of the French song. She grew up immersed in the music of Piaf, her mother’s favorite. As a child who knew she would be a singer herself, she was impressed by Piaf’s energy and touched by her emotionally charged lyrics. Piaf’s love songs resonated with Aigrot, especially as a teenager. “This voice came out me very naturally … When I was a student at the conservatory, I was told that my voice was not lyrical enough, that I should sing French pop songs.”
