Celebrate Women's History Month at the 2019 Women's Jazz Festival, kicking off with a tribute to Nina Simone

March 1, 2019

 

Thanks to the Schomburg, this month you'll have not one but four chances to celebrate Women's History Month with live jazz from today's top female performers.

 

It's all part of the 2019 Women's Jazz Festival, set to take place at the Schomburg's Langston Hughes Auditorium over the next four Mondays.

 

The series kicks off on March 4th with "Dear Nina," featuring vocalist/pianist Drea d'Nur singing the songs of Nina Simone–dedicated to love, blues and protest.

 

The evenings that follow include a salute to bebop curated by musician and composer Diedre L. Murray; a tribute to singers Aretha Franklin, Nancy Wilson and Nina Simone by saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin; and a celebration of the three women who appeared in the legendary "A Great Day in Harlem" jazz photo by vocalist Jazzmeia Horn.

 

Tickets can be purchased in advance here.
