Jazz Speaks: LiveConnections Bridge Session

  • World Cafe Live 3025 Walnut Street Philadelphia, PA, 19104 United States (map)

LiveConnections’ signature Bridge Sessions create a high-impact music experience for students from public schools and people with disabilities. These sessions mix performance with interactive activities. They provide multiple ways for participants to engage in music-making themselves, through call and response, movement, playing percussion instruments, creating rhythm poems and more. “Jazz Speaks” traces the journey of jazz: its origins, styles and various ways jazz “speaks,” including connections to Latin culture and influence on spoken word poetry. Featuring Larry McKenna on sax, Luke Carlos O’Reilly on keys, Arturo Stable on percussion, and Yolanda Wisher on vocals,
