Brass: Kinda Blues - Jazz Concert
August 14, 5:15pm
Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library
Save the date for this concert celebrating music from the first golden era of jazz and stage.
Among the Beinecke and Yale Library collections are letters and photographs relating to great American composers, including W.C. Handy, George Gershwin, and Cole Porter. The vibrant and innovative works of these composers established blues as a mainstream genre and gave rise to jazz, considered by many the most distinctly American form of musical expression.
The concert is free and open to the public!
