Professional Development Session: Mon, March 12, 2018, 4:30pm – 6:00pm

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. In this fun concert experience, you will come to understand what made Williams’ piano playing so special and entertaining. A professional player by age seven, Williams charged headfirst into the music world, outplayed her male contemporaries, and quickly emerged as a composer and arranger they simply needed to hire. By her early 20s, she was arranging music for Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Benny Goodman. Hosting this event is Grammy Award-nominee Catherine Russell, who joined us last season to host “Who is Louis Armstrong?” She’ll be joined by energetic drummer LaFrae Sci with additional band members to be announced.
