Women in World Jazz Virtual Concert

Women in World Jazz 05_19 - 001 4x6

SATURDAY, March 6 at 2 PM

Join us as we celebrate Women’s History Month with a virtual concert! Women in World Jazz presents an educational performance for the whole family featuring an international ensemble of all-female performers showcasing music from around the world.

Women in World Jazz features world music composed by women artists past and present. From USA Blues and Jazz styles, the group ventures to Jamaica, Brazil, Japan, Cape Verde, and Israel to celebrate the diversity and power of creativity. Audience members will have a chance to ask questions and are invited to create their own music by bringing a shaker instrument (you can make a shaker using a vitamin container or soda bottle). This interactive tribute to women composers from around the globe will delight adults and kids of all ages.

Sign up to see the concert on Zoom Webinar here! Or watch the livestream on the Library’s Facebook page.

This event is generously sponsored by the Brookline Library Foundation and the Library Trustees.
