Family Concert: Who is Mary Lou Williams?

Rose Theater • 1:00PM, 3:00PM

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. Hosting this event is the energetic drummer LaFrae Sci.
