Event description

Description

Our annual Women's Jazz Festival, in honor of Women’s History Month, features some of the best-known and unsung female performers in jazz today. Our 2018 festival will celebrate the continued influence of women on the evolution of jazz. Throughout the festival we will pay tribute to Alice Coltrane and Abbey Lincoln. Our 2017 festival will celebrate Ella Fitzgerald’s centennial birthday and continued influence on the evolution of jazz. The festival is slated for four consecutive Mondays–March 5, 12, 19, and 26.

The second annual Women's Jazz Festival (WJF) Conversation will feature an intimate discussion between scholars and musical artists discussing the legacy and life of Abbey Lincoln. The panelist and performance will be announced after February 15th!
