An outdoor art show and night of music with The Rajdulari Experience featuring Monique Brooks-Roberts.

Trinity Presents is excited to host LOVE IS. A Concert Benefitting Artists of Color. This limited-ticket outdoor concert with The Rajdulari Experience featuring Monique Brooks-Roberts will benefit the Transforming Creatives Artists of Color Fund. This fund was created to support Colorado’s BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) artists who have been financially harmed by the COVID-19 crisis.

Take Ella Fitzgerald’s clear vocal tone, Jill Scott’s spunk, and Chaka’s funk and you have New Jazz Vocalist Rajdulari. Along with her band, she will speak to your soul, awaken your ears, and move your feet. Violinist Monique Brooks-Roberts creates music not because she wants to, but because she has to. She is a firm believer that music is key to feeding and nourishing our souls. For her, music is her drug, and she views it as her mission to inspire audiences with messages of peace and love through her music.

The paintings of Colorado native Dennis Wright illuminate color from a foundational and textural understanding. Dennis takes pride in and is proud of working with a handful of non-profits and paints live at their silent auctions and events. The art that is created at those events is donated for their charities. Dennis is a part of the mission of Transforming Creatives and committed to the Artists of Color Fund.

Painter Rochelle Johnson grew up in Park Hill, one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city of Denver. Throughout her life, she has been a constant observer of the interactions between different sorts of people. Watching the ways that people react and relate to one another, both good and bad, has long been a curiosity of hers and has inspired her current painting series, documenting the life and spirit of urban people. Her paintings largely reflect what she sees in my community on a positive level. Feeling that there is too much negativity in the world, Rochelle focuses on portraits placed in an environment where people are doing what comes naturally to them, capturing the energy and emotion of her subject matter. Rochelle believes if she paints an interaction of unusual encounters people will become familiar with those interactions and possibly change the norm-much like the lone black figure in classical paintings that people tend to overlook. Her painting focuses on a narrative that is interactive in a way that single outs the sitter and draws curiosity.

This night of music and art on Trinity UMC’s outdoor plaza takes social distancing into consideration and is limited to 50 tickets. Masks will be required. Free parking will be provided.

As with everything in our world, in-person events are subject to change. Please understand that plans with these concerts could change with any new developments surrounding COVID-19. If an in-person concert can not safely happen, we will livestream the performance. Your original ticket will be good for the livestream so that our artists and the Artists of Color fund can still be supported.

Tickets…Net proceeds from ticket sales and donations will go to the Artists of Color fund. Please consider a donation in addition to your ticket price to support this important work in our community!
