Michael Austin: Summer Courtyard Concert- Free and Open to the Public!
Join the Arts Council of Princeton in the Princeton Shopping Center Courtyard for the 35th annual Summer Concert Series, featuring the best in local and regional jazz, folk, world, rock and blues.
Michael Austin, native of Baltimore, MD is an example of many things. He is a mentor, leader, musician, teacher and public speaker, to name a few. In May of 1975, Michael, 26 at the time, was sentenced to life plus fifteen years for armed robbery and murder, crimes he did not commit. During the next 10 years, while incarcerated, Austin started a jazz band and music programs. He continued to educate himself and others on music theory, composing, and voice training. On December 28, 2001, Austin’s prayers for freedom had been answered. All charges were dropped and Michael was released and granted a full pardon. Michael Allen frequently travels all over the east coast and internationally, to share his story and talents with others.
Join us every Thursday, 6–8 pm, from June 21–August 23, 2018, at the Princeton Shopping Center, 301 N. Harrison Street, Princeton, NJ. To view a full lineup of performances, click here!
