Family Concert: Who is Mary Lou Williams?

Our Jazz for Young People series continues with an hour-long, interactive celebration of composer, arranger, and pianist Mary Lou Williams (1910–1981). Families will learn the inspiring tale of a young woman who realized her dreams through determination, imagination, incredible talent, and a famously big heart. Her music was truly as adventurous as her personality, and you will be fascinated to discover her influence on several generations of creative jazz musicians. Hosting this event is vocalist Catherine Russell.

The Swing Collective

The Swing Collective is a new quintet of enormously talented young musicians representing five countries of origin: Chilean tenor saxophonist and Thelonious Monk Competition winner Melissa Aldana, Trinidadian trumpeter Etienne Charles, Cuban pianist Elio Villafranca, Japanese bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and Ulysses Owens, Jr. of Jacksonville, Florida. To witness these artists on a single stage is an exciting prospect, but tonight’s performance will be particularly special as they each debut new works composed specifically for this occasion.
