Join us for our next exciting concert with Women in World Jazz. This concert will feature works by composers who use music as a platform to promote social justice and peace. Women in World Jazz highlight these artists who mobilize change, raise awareness to social issues and address inequality. The concert includes live presentations by members of the group and live performances. At the concert you'll hear about women who left their impact on history such as Joan Baez and Nina Simone, followed by contemporary composers and activists such as Beyoncé, Annie Lenox and Angelique Kidjo. The group continues its outreach leadership programs, teaching and collaborating with young musicians, creating a multi generational performing ensemble. Women in World Jazz strives to educate and share the stories from these women’s lives, and their culture with audiences across Massachusetts.
