Mil’s Trills Brings ‘N’Awlins’ To Lincoln Center
New York, New York – From the streets of New Orleans to the stage of Lincoln Center, interactive performance group Mil’s Trills invites New York City to celebrate together on Saturday, June 2 with the debut of the “Million Trillion” Brass Marching Band.
The Lincoln Center show will be one of the most interactive Mil's Trills shows ever, kicking off in true “N'awlins” style. Expect a massive outdoor parade featuring the musical talents of inner-city students in the 6th and 7th grades, playing alongside professional musicians. The show will introduce the brass, wind and percussion instrumental families to the (much) younger generation who may have never before met these types of instruments!
Guests of every age can expect to be transported to the high-spirited jubilation of Calypso, Blues and Jazz, flavors of the streets of New Orleans. The kids will have the opportunity to make their own musical instruments prior to the performance with the help of the Children’s Museum of Manhattan and then perform alongside the professionals in Big Band fashion. Mil’s Trills guarantees an event where the entire family will get up on their feet and become part of the party.
With more than twenty musicians of all ages on stage and original songs never-before-heard by the Mil’s Trills Band, the music will be “laced with humor, silliness, folk-tale stories, and a splosh of good ol’ music education,” says Amelia Robinson, creator and lead musician of Mil’s Trills.
“I'm looking forward to opening doors and new frontiers for Mil's Trills, reaching families who really need it the most – the music, a sense of belonging, a community, friends, and of course family,” Robinson says. “I'm looking forward to playing good music with an outstanding cast of musicians. New Orleans is one of my favorite places in the world and the music there makes you feel so good! It's joyous, it's celebratory, it's funky, and it makes you dance - which is the best form of therapy I can imagine! I can't wait to hear what it's going to sound like when we are all playing together!”
