The PRJC Educational Discussion Jazzing the Capital
Presented by Ken Avis, professional musician with award winning jazz group Veronneau
     Oct 20, 2021, 7-8:15pm, ONLINE via Zoom

Join the PRJC in a talk with musician Ken Avis discussing the DC area musicians who made a mark on the world, and the area’s lesser-known, and fascinating musical avenues. Jazz Talk
About this event:

  Jazzing the Capital - Washington, D.C., has given much to the musical world beyond its best-known jazz export Duke Ellington. Explore what made the city a significant jazz mecca and how the music changed over the 20th century. From James Reece Europe to the remarkable International Sweethearts of Rhythm, jazz has flowed through the Capital as reliably as the Potomac. Join musician, broadcaster, and historian Ken Avis as he explores the DC area musicians who made a mark on the world, and discusses the area’s lesser-known, and fascinating musical avenues and why they could only have developed here in the Washington DC area. Film and recordings bring legendary musicians to life as Avis examines how social change, technological development, and business innovation shaped the sounds that emerged from D.C.from 1900 through to WWII. DC.... a political town with a serious music habit.

  Ken Avis is a professional musician, performing with the award-winning, world-jazz group Veronneau, which reopened DC's legendary Blues Alley in Sept 2021. He's been a contributing writer to many publications such as DC's Capitalbop website, Washington Post, and the UK Jazz Journal. As a lecturer he has presented DC music history programs at George Mason University, Smithsonian, and at Strathmore where he serves as a mentor to young professional musicians on their Artist in Residence Program. Ken's interest in DC music history has built around the two music documentary films he has produced "Bossa Nova - The Brazilian Music which Seduced the World" and "Anacostia Delta - The Legacy of DC's Telemasters", which aired on PBS in 2021. Ken is also a music presenter, curating live music festivals, and hosting with his wife Lynn Veronneau a weekly music program "Antidote".

 Admission:The event is FREE! But registration by 5pm on the day of the event is required.
