A Conversation with Jazz Artists
a DhvaniOnline zoom event
As part of an initiative to promote a better understanding of Black Lives Matter and to create opportunities for interaction with the African American community, Dhvani is proud to present this virtual event in collaboration with the musicians of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra.
The trumpet virtuoso Byron Stripling will join us to share music and stories about the relevance of music to the civil rights movement and much more.
The Columbus Jazz Orchestra is led by world-renowned band leader and trumpet virtuoso Byron Stripling, former lead trumpeter for the Count Basie Orchestra. Under Stripling’s leadership, the CJO presents over 20 subscription concerts each season in Columbus, Ohio.
By incorporating contemporary arrangements into its repertoire and commissioning new arrangements and masterworks for jazz orchestra, the CJO promotes the future of big band jazz and cultivates the dynamic, adventurous spirit that has kept audiences coming back again and again.
