Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens to celebrate Black History Month
In honor of Black History Month, the sounds of feel-good music will fill the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens on Sundays throughout February for the Third Annual Jazz & Gospel in the Gardens.
“Jazz & Gospel in the gardens creates a musical infusion of art and nature,” said Margaret Horgan, General Manager of Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. “We are thrilled to bring this series back for the third year in a row. And what better way to celebrate and honor Black History Month than with award-winning musicians in a tropical outdoor oasis.”
Visitors will have the opportunity to listen to jazz and gospel from world-renowned artists among the monumental works of Ann Norton on the Main Lawn. A Sandy James picnic lunch box will be available for purchase. The series will include music on Sundays from 1-3 p.m. in February with the following special performances.
- February 6 – Troy Anderson as Louis Armstrong (Quintet)
- February 13 – Nicole Yarling Violinist and jazz singer (Quartet)
- February 20 – Ritah Wilburn (Quartet)
- February 27 – Nikki Kidd Contemporary Jazz Singer (Quartet)
“Thanks to the support of the Jim Moran Foundation and the leadership of event chairs Clarence and Ethel Williams, this year we are thrilled to bring an educational component to Jazz & Gospel in the gardens“Horgan continued. “Some local students and their families will be invited to lunch, enjoy the show and participate in a free family program with the star musician. Recognizing that many young people in our community may not have experienced this kind of live music in this type of setting, the goal of the program is to introduce students and their families to jazz and gospel as a form of art. By implementing our successful format of inspiring students with personal interactions with famous artists, students will learn about each musician’s personal journey, the instruments, and the rich history that make jazz and gospel such an art form. influential.”
