The Winston Tabb Special Collections Research Center and Billie Holiday Center for Liberation Arts invite you to reflect on the past and envision the emerging future of Baltimore jazz during an afternoon of conversation and music in combination with the Sheridan Libraries' exhibition Ethel's Place: Celebrating Ethel Ennis, Baltimore's First Lady of Jazz.

Sunday, April 7, 4 to 6 p.m.
George Peabody Library

Peabody Jazz Studies chair Sean Jones (trumpet) will lead an intergenerational discussion about the past, present, and future of Baltimore's jazz scene. The featured panel speakers are Left Bank Jazz Society founding member John Fowler, world-renowned jazz pianist and organist Charles Covington, Peabody faculty artists Tim Green (saxophone) and Brinae Ali (dance), and Peabody sophomore Ebban Dorsey (alto saxophone).

Following the panel discussion, Peabody faculty vocalist Charenée Wade and her trio will bring to life a few of Ethel Ennis' signature songs before a jazz jam session with the panel's musicians. Guests are invited to view the Ethel's Place exhibition and enjoy a drinks reception while listening to the music.
