Event Description: 

Women in World Jazz chose to feature composers who use the music platform to promote social justice and peace. These artists mobilize change, raise awareness to social issues and address inequality. The concert includes verbal/visual presentations by members of the group and live musical performances. At the concert you'll hear about women who left their impact on history such as Joan Baez, Nina Simone followed by contemporary composers and activists such as BeyoncĂ©, Annie Lennox and Angelique Kidjo.

The group continues its outreach leadership programs, teaching and collaborating with young musicians, creating a multi generational performing ensemble . WIWJ strives to educate and share the stories from these women’s lives, and their culture with audiences in MA.
