Many things are still being shared throughout the week on the MMT Facebook page, so make sure your are following there as well!

Our friends at The Kimmel Center are continuing to offer great interactive events via its webpage, The Show Must Go On, – a virtual hub and one-stop-shop cultural calendar. And tomorrow, Saturday April 18, The Kimmel has organized a fun opportunity for the community to come together and enjoy some Latin music with DJ and host Kevin Ngo – as its monthly free Latin music dance party, La NOCHE, takes over its Instagram to share some of his favorite Latin hits. Join the party by following @kimmelcenter on Instagram and getting additional info on its Facebook page here.
- On Sunday, April 19th at 5 PM EDT, award-winning celebrity photographer Timothy White will be doing a Behind The Lens Livestream on Morrison Hotel Gallery’s Instagram. White is one of the world’s most sought-after celebrity photographers. For over 30 years, he has worked with an endless number of A-list stars of the stage, screen, and recording studio. The New Jersey native, who was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame in 2019, is well-known for his brilliance in capturing an entire story in one split-second click of the shutter. He has worked with everyone from Sophia Loren and Angelina Jolie to Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Travolta; from Bruce Springsteen and Paul McCartney to Billy Joel, Aretha Franklin and Bon Jovi. White has created timeless portraits and some of the most iconic movie posters and album covers the world has ever known.
