SING ABOUT FREEDOM- Bravo Niagara Festival of the Arts- International Jazz Day Celebration
Bravo Niagara! will celebrate International Jazz Day and freedom through music. For years, artists have fought for freedom of expression, as is seen by music being at the core of every major social movement in history. This year, we hear from Canadian and international artists, educators, and authors, about the importance of jazz and social justice, jazz education, women in jazz music, and legacy. Curated by Céline Peterson, this one-time-only broadcast features a celebration of Dr. Billy Taylor’s centennial (Monty Alexander, Brandon Goldberg), a conversation between Howard Reich and John Clayton, a tribute to the late, great, Chick Corea (Robi Botos), a brand new arrangement of Max Roach’s ‘Freedom Day’ by Larnell Lewis, and performances from Molly Johnson, Lara Driscoll, Laila Biali, and Paul Marinaro. This International Jazz Day, join us as we ‘Sing About Freedom’.
