April is Jazz Appreciation Month: Highlighting Millie Edwards
April 05, 2011
It’s the 10th year of The Smithsonian’s Jazz Appreciation Month(JAM). JAM was launched by the National Museum of American History in 2001 to recognize jazz as America’s original music. Jazz is both a living and historical national treasure of the United States. The range of emotions varies greatly within different jazz expressions. From sheer joy to pain, to the range of familiar emotions between the two, each jazz musician makes what is sung or played uniquely theirs.
The 2011 Mid-Continent Public Library Jazz Series features Millie Edwards. She performs solo as well as part of The Wild Women of Kansas City. This year, she’ll be joined by Greg Meise. Their music will transport your soul from its very depth to heights from which it will soar.
Millie Edwards will perform 7:00 pm this Thursday, April 7th at Kearney Branch, then at the Parkville Branch on Saturday, April 16th at 2:00 pm, the Antioch Branch on Tuesday, April 19th at 7:00 pm, and the Excelsior Springs Branch on Saturday, April 23rd at 2:00 pm.
Come and celebrate with song!
