Street Scenes: The String Queens with Washington Women in Jazz
Wednesday, March 27 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Hill Center is proud to welcome The String Queens as part of our Street Scenes concert series, focusing on new music composed by emerging DC jazz artists, curated by Burnett Thompson.
Created by Amy K Bormet in 2011, Washington Women in Jazz hosts an annual festival (WWJF) each March to celebrate the women of the DC jazz community. Bormet and her colleagues develop, promote and lead a wide array of concerts, jam sessions, lectures, panels, discussions, and master classes. A highlight of the festival is the Young Artist Showcase, where high school and college women are given a platform to perform and connect with professional jazz artists.
“This city’s many expert female musicians too often fly under the radar – as is frequently the case in the male-dominated greater jazz world. But pianist and singer Amy K. Bormet’s festival has been a resounding success, with folks from around the city breathlessly taking note and taking part.”- capitalbop.com
Doors open at 6:30pm. Join us for a post-concert wine reception with the artist.
