Jazz: The Sound of Freedom with Shelly Berg
Begin the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend celebration with a one-hour journey through the evolution of jazz and its influences on some of the celebrated songs and artists inspired by the Civil Rights Movement.
Taking us on this musical voyage is five-time Grammy-nominated arranger, orchestrator, and producer, Shelly Berg. A celebrated jazz pianist, Shelly is Dean and Patricia L. Frost Professor of Music at the University of Miami’s acclaimed Frost School of Music. From the keyboard, Shelly sounds his deeply-inspired interpretations, the freedom that jazz embodies, and the spring of hope it swells within humankind: “Free at last!”
Doors open and seating begins at 6:30 p.m. for the 7:00 p.m. FREE concert. Canned food and monetary freewill donations will be accepted for Feeding South Florida. As always, everyone will be welcomed!
