Jazz Appreciation & National Poetry Month
Saturday, April 21, 2018
7:00 – 9:00PM
In Catalonia, Spain San Jordi Day is celebrated on April 23rd by giving gifts of books and roses. For this program, we will give out books to readers of all ages. As that day is also the birthday of Cervantes and Shakespeare, poetry is also recognized, so poet Rebecca Rivera will recite poetry inspired by these masters. This will be followed by another installment of our Maxine Sullivan Women in Jazz series, where we present music by Poems & Strings led by pianist Carolina Calvache. Carolina is featured in City Lore’s exhibit, What We Bring. This special performance is in honor of Jazz Appreciation Month & National Poetry Month.
