The Amazingness that was Art + Jazz hosted in the Temple of Dendur (PICS)

160608-1077So, 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.

Art + Jazz at The Met, Wed., June 8th

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.
