Arts at The Park: Mary Lou Williams: A Celebration - Park Avenue Christian Church
Add to Calendar 20-02-2013 20-02-2013 15 Arts at The Park: Mary Lou Williams: A Celebration In celebration of Black History month, Arts at The Park's artist-in-residence Deanna Witkowski leads an ensemble of NYC's finest jazz vocalists and instrumentalists in a performance of works by Mary Lou Williams, the preeminent African-American jazz pianist and composer. Williams broke through the era's significant barriers to women jazz musicians. The featured work on the program is Williams' "Mass for Peace," a monumental work of sacred jazz informed by the Civil Rights movement and the liturgical reforms of Vatican II, as well as Williams' own deep personal faith. Her remarkably original settings of traditional liturgical texts embrace a compendium of jazz styles, from blues to bossa nova. This program will also include several of Williams' jazz instrumental compositions as well as musical tributes by Witkowski and others. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=126847 Park Avenue Christian Church true DD/MM/YYYY
