15th Annual Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival
May 20 - May 22, 2010
15th annual Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Festival, hosted by Dee Dee Bridgewater
All the 2008 and 2009 concerts sold out--so for 2010, be sure to buy your tickets for this annual Kennedy Center festival featuring today's top female jazz artists. In recognition of the 100th anniversary of Mary Lou Williams's birth, this season's concerts will highlight the compositions and arrangements of Mary Lou herself. The concert on Friday, May 21, will feature an extended performance by the all-star quintet of Dee Dee Bridgewater, Geri Allen, Terri Lyne Carrington, Esperanza Spalding, and Grace Kelly. The Washington Post says the festival "speaks volumes about the contributions women have made to jazz--and continue to make--both here and abroad." A complete lineup will be released at a later date.
Tickets will be available to the public for purchase beginning February 10, 2010. Ticket purchasing options and complete festival information are available at the Kenney Center website.
