Billy Taylor Jazz Festival

Apr 16 - Apr 17, 2009

Again this year, the East Carolina University School of Music Jazz Studies Program brings a world-class jazz performer to Greenville, NC for the Billy Taylor Jazz Festival on April 16-17.
Award-winning and multiple Grammy-nominated North Carolina vocalist Nnenna Freelon headlines this year’s event on April 17.

Dr. Billy Taylor—house pianist at Birdland, arts correspondent for CBS News “Sunday Morning,” artistic advisor for jazz to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, recipient of two Peabody Awards, an Emmy, a Grammy, and 23 honorary doctoral degrees—is a national treasure, Greenville’s native son and the festival’s namesake.
