Sosnick Courtyard
2 hours

Originally formed in 2007, the Kris Johnson Group plays an eclectic blend of Detroit-infused original music. Kris gathered the founding members from friendships formed in high school under the tutelage of Marcus Belgrave, whose inspiration led them to genre-bending artistry. The result is a dynamic ensemble that explores an array of grooves from the Black American Music canon and themes of freedom and fearless self-expression.

The music is delivered by a diverse group of artists, each of whom are prolific educators, performers, improvisers, composers, and arrangers in their own right. Principal among these collaborators is Lulu Fall, Kris' partner in music and in life.
