2019/20 JAZZ RESIDENCY

As part of the Kimmel Center’s Jazz Residency program, we welcome you to get a glimpse into the creative process before it’s presented as a world premiere on the Kimmel Center stage. Pick a show, BYOB, and join us in the resident’s journey of developing new works of jazz!

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE JAZZ RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Overview

The Jazz Residency kick-off is a performance where the residents feature the music they've created to date. It gives the audience a chance to hear the artist’s sound as they start their journey in developing new work. It's a special BYOB event and tickets are free with a reservation!

Jazz has a long history as a catalyst for social change. Ruth Naomi Floyd (Vocalist & Composer) and Charles "Chaz" Lattimore Howard (Poet & Lyricist) continue in that tradition as their jazz residency project holds a mirror to the issue of homelessness in Philadelphia. Through music, lyric, and spoken word, the pair, along with their collaborators, are asking questions, opening a dialogue, and creating a body of work that allows these individuals to truly be seen.
