Women in Jazz


Share this post!

Women have been involved in jazz since the early 1920s, not just as vocalists, but as instrumentalists, composers and arrangers. An understanding of jazz would not be complete without highlighting the influence and contributions of women—women such as Bessie Smith, Valaida Snow, Mildred Bailey, Mary Lou Williams, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sarah Vaughn.

Join us and flautist Galen Abdur-Razzaq from Flute Juice Productions for a virtual presentation about Women of Jazz and how they performed and survived when jazz was considered “a man’s world.” The lecture/performance will also include performances by Galen and a Q&A. Register here for a Zoom link to the event.
