Description

The African American Museum of Bucks County is launching a 4-part Speakers Series, extraordinary presentations each revealing American and local history, up-close and personal. The museum is tapping local talent with unique personal and professional perspectives of history to enlarge and enrich your understanding of history.

On April 13, in part 4 of the Series, Josh Lee and the Family, a 6-person jazz band, presents African American Arts Finale: Jazz and the Great Migration.

Saxophonist, composer, arranger and Managing and Co-Artistic Director of Jazz Lives Philadelphia, Joshua Lee grew up and teaches in Bucks County. He is fully dedicated to the advancement of the local jazz community.

Joshua feels a strong calling in making positive changes to the arts in the Philadelphia locale and extending the rich traditions of jazz to the next generations, a vision that can be fulfilled through Jazz Lives Philadelphia. Joshua joined the Legendary Count Basie Orchestra in June of 2018 and performs with them around the world.
