Description

Celebrate the 10th Anniversary of Jazz Appreciation Month in Philadelphia! The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy is bringing FREE performances, dance classes and more to community spaces around the city with 10 free Neighborhood Jazz Days!

Join us on Saturday, April 4, 2020 from 12:00-3:00 p.m. at the Northeast Older Adult Center for the first free Neighborhood Jazz Day. This event will feature appearances by Rhenda & The Unity Trio, The Paul Giess Group, and Take it Away Dance.

Rhenda & The Unity Trio features vocalist Rhenda Fearrington, Chris Simonini on piano, Jason Klinke on guitar, and Harry "Butch" Reed on drums. The group will present soulful renditions of jazz standards and original songs. The Paul Giess Group will bring flavors of New Orleans to present an exciting set of hymns from Paul’s upbringing in the Unitarian Universalist Church. Take It Away Dance advances the scope of American tap dance and jazz music traditions through current choreography, modern compositions, progressive performances and accessible contexts for the work. With live accompaniment from the Jazz Tap Trio, they will present a mix of their classic favorites, plus a preview of brand-new compositions.

The Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE) presents Philly Celebrates Jazz, a celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month in April. All month long, OACCE presents jazz-inspired events in Philadelphia’s neighborhoods and promotes jazz happenings across the city.
