First Friday: Francis Experience Quartet

6–9pm • Music starts at 7:15pm

Join us for a special, Cinco de Mayo performance by the Francis Experience Quartet, featuring vocals by Jonathan Borca with local musicians Miguel “Frunky” Leyva on bass, Bennett Roth on keys, and Brandon Walters on drums. Francis Experience Quartet brings forth a unique musical experience—a blend of rap, poetry, and storytelling infused with jazz and hip-hop. Performance starts at 7:15pm in the Wendel Education Center. 

In addition to open galleries, this First Friday will also offer the opportunity for family-friendly, hands-on artmaking fun with SJMA’s team of educators and artists.
