Lioness: Women in Jazz Concert Series (Part 3/3)
Join us for Lioness: Women in Jazz Concert Series, a 3-part partnership series happening at Flushing Town Hall during the Fall 2022 season. Each of these 3 concerts will be 60 minutes long and include a Q&A after each performance. This concert features the collective Lioness™.
The purpose of each concert is not only to share the music of women composers with the community, but also to share the artistic process and methods practiced by these composers. It’s also a forum through which the audience can have a meaningful dialogue with the musicians and hopefully feel more of a connection with the music and the artistic process moving forward.
