Regina Carter to Perform at Black History Month Celebration

Jazz violinist Regina Carter will perform at the presentation of Berklee College of Music’s Fourth Annual Dr. Warrick L. Carter Lecture on Thursday, February 1, 2001. This free event begins the college’s annual

Black History Month Music Celebration. A celebration it shall be, but the event includes a lecture and discussion with Dr. Carter and Regina Carter as well.

Regina Carter is the newest addition to the roster of great jazz violinists. Her music combines an understanding of the jazz tradition, but with an awareness of pop and soul music. Carter has recorded with artists ranging from pop icons Aretha Franklin and Patti Labelle to legendary jazz pianist Kenny Barron and The Voice of Jazz: Wynton Marsalis. She has also recorded with R&B and Hip-Hop divas including Mary J. Blige and Lauryn Hill.

Berklee College of Music’s Black History Month 2001 Music Celebration will feature concerts, clinics and lectures and a Gospel Jubilee at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 4h by the award-winning Berklee Reverence Gospel Ensemble, directed by Dennis Montgomery III.
