So, I have to admit I planned the event with the Met so I may be partial. But, it was definitely a fabulous and amazing experience – see the pics! Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art hosted Art + Jazz with nearly 1,000 guests in attendance. The evening included conversation and performances that explored the relationship between art and jazz with live music by The Gabe Schnider Septet, and a performance by dancer Michela Marino Lerman. The conversation was followed by a cocktail reception in The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing. Read The Rest
On Monday, June 27, 2016, JALC will host the third annual Swing! A Summer Cocktail Party. Swing! honors the next generation of jazz artists and is specifically geared toward our culturally diverse young professional audience. Join us for an evening of cocktails, live jazz and more. Proceeds will support Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Education programs.
I had an opportunity to work with Jazz at Lincoln Center and help to found Swing! A Summer Cocktail Party which is now in its third year. Our aim was to bring a young, diverse crowd together to celebrate and promote the eclectic, American art form that is jazz.
I’m so happy to reconnect with the organization for this fabulous event – Art + Jazz. The Met and Jazz at Lincoln Center will explore the connection between Art + Jazz through live music, art, dance and conversation followed by complimentary cocktails in the Temple of Dendur. I’m so happy to be planning this event. Read The Rest
