July 5 – July 7.
Jecorey Arthur is a jack of all trades. He is visionary. He brings the best out of people. He is a leader… Floating between old recognizable hits, xylophone (or whatever that percussion instrument was that he played) breaks, vocal solos, ballerina moments, and the continually present light, 1200 and his crew showcased all of their talents and hard work. He admitted and kind of apologized at one point, to any people that thought they were coming to a traditional hip-hop show. That it was not. It was an artistic venture.
Jecorey “1200” Arthur is a musician from Louisville, Ky. and founder of 1200LLC®, a company that specializes in music education, composition, performance, and curation. As an award-winning certified music educator, classically trained musician, and hip hop artist, he impacts and positively influences thousands of students worldwide. After falling in love with hip hop, Arthur purchased a KORG D-1200 recording studio at age 12 and became a self-taught producer. Arthur’s performances range from Forecastle Festival and 92nd Street Y Musical Introduction Series, to collaborations with the Louisville Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony, and Indianapolis Symphony.
