A Tribute to the Women in Jazz
Sunday, April 23 at 1:00 PM

Join us for this tribute to the talented women in today’s jazz universe, arranged by Tallahassee’s own Scotty Barnhart. We’ll be featuring women jazz performers from around the world, including drummer Sylvia Cuenca, saxophonist Lauren Sevian, singer Carmen Bradford, pianist Helen Sung, bassist Amina Scott, trumpeter Gunhild Carling, guitarist Téka Penteriche, and more! A panel discussion led by music writer Nate Chinen will be held at 4:00 PM, and musical sets will begin at 1:00 PM, 2:30 PM, and 5:30 PM. It should be something to behold!
