Musique Noire BIO
About seven years ago, band leader, violinist and flutist, Michelle Ann May “found a few like-minded, seasoned musicians from the Detroit area, who felt like she did–tired of always making some ‘else’s’ vision a reality and ready to let the world hear what they had to offer.” They have a unique instrumental line-up: violin, viola, percussion, guitar and bass.
Musique Noire doesn’t play “radio-friendly” music; they perform music that challenges the ear, emotions and intellect.
To date, Musique Noire has released two CDs: Good Hair and Holiday Dreams: A Celebration of Christmas. They are currently working on their third project — a CD honoring women in the arts.
Each member is a working musician and music educator and is passionate about both. Members are Michelle Ann May (violin), JoVia Armstrong (violin & percussion), Leslie DeShazor Adams (viola) and Leah Lucas Celebi (viola and violin).
