About the Event

LISTENING TO JAZZ: EXPRESSIONS OF PROTEST AND FREEDOM

ONLINE WORKSHOP WITH PAUL SILBERGLEIT

While the African-American art form that is jazz arises altogether from the Black experience, certain compositions from throughout its history have dealt more explicitly than others with the subjects of racism, civil rights, and cultural and community pride. Join MJI’s Paul Silbergleit to take a closer look at famous musical statements of this kind, with or without words, from Billie Holiday, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, and other jazz giants.

Cost: $15
