    Kimmel Center Jazz Residency: David Allen / Raquel Salas Rivera / Diane Monroe Public Workshop

    Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts

    Where:
    300 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102
    When:
    • Friday March 8th 2019, 6:00pm to 8:00pm

    The public workshop is a special kind of concert where the jazz residency artist engage in a direct dialogue with the audience about their music. The artist shares background info, research, and musical inspirations for the new work they are writing for the residency as they discuss what “jazz” is today.

    David Allen, composer, guitarist, and educator, will “develop a series of jazz compositions that incorporate poetry and spoken-word to tell a story of Philadelphia as a multi-cultural safe-haven” and to “represent the diversity of Philadelphia in both music and language.” This new work is focused on multi-culturalism and the idea of what people think of as "home". It will explore Philadelphia as a safe-haven and sanctuary city for immigrants and migrants alike.

     

    Pulling inspiration from his firsthand experience, Allen is enlisting the help of 2018-19 poet laureate of Philadelphia Raquel Sala Rivera, violinist Diane Monroe, drummer Matt Scarano, and bassist Madison Rast.
