Saturday, February 26, 2011
400 I St, SW
By popular demand this program will review the historic event we presented at UDC on October 16, 2010, A Great Day in D.C. This program presented over 30 of the elder musicians from our community who have distinguished themselves through a lifetime of dedication and excellence in jazz.
This review and reflection will present four of these great musicians: Dempsey Combs, Ernie Douglas, Bob Houser and Maurice Lyles. They will be engaged in conversation by Davey Yarborough and Esther Williams as we hear more of their experiences that opens the incredible history of jazz in our community and their many contributions making it so rich. We also will view some video clips of this historic performance.
Also, joining us is our wonderful D.C. photographer who captured these historic images, Sharon Farmer. She will present a photo-exhibit of this great day which forever preserves the images of the people and encounters that made this such a Great Day in D.C.
Please join us for this great program, light refreshments, stimulating conversation, door prizes and more.
