An all-female congregation of world-class instrumentalists brings the swing for a three-day JAZZ ROOM residency, in celebration of Women’s History Month.
The JAZZ ROOM provides a casual and intimate setting reminiscent of the classic jazz rooms of yesteryear.
This evening we celebrate the females that are instrumental in jazz historically and today. Women like Mary Lou Williams, Alice Coltrane, and Melba Liston have been incredibly influential in the development of jazz, whether ghostwriter behind the scene or trailblazer despite it. Some were recognized in their own time, but others only discovered later. This is a unique opportunity to hear a full ensemble of all-star female jazz musicians from the region and beyond, and to celebrate the unique joy and energy they bring to the music.
Note: At this time, in following regional directives and venue protocols for the comfort and safety of attendees, masks will be required at all times inside the Stage Door Theater. No food or beverage will be allowed. Keep your eyes out for opportunities to gather with your JAZZ ROOM friends for dinner or a drink before and after the show at surrounding restaurants.
Thank you to our special event sponsor, Mayer Brown.
And thank you to the program sponsors and supporters, who each bring jazz alive in Charlotte: Infusion Fund, Knight Foundation, Doris Duke Foundation, North Carolina Arts Council, and O’s Place Jazz.
