Jazz Age Paris
Just as the current Whistler exhibition highlights the influence of Europe on this American visual artist, Jazz Age Paris is one of two concerts presented in collaboration with the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, that explores different themes of expatriation in music.
Jazz was welcomed and adopted by Paris as early as the 1920s, affording African American musicians the serious critical acclaim absent in the United States. Local early Jazz specialists Phil Ogilvie's Rhythm Kings, with Professor Emeritus James Dapogny, present the music as it was heard and performed in Paris, and jazz faculty and students perform music from post-war Paris, led by Professor Andrew Bishop.
Arrive early and join James Dapogny, Professor Emeritus of Music Theory and leader of Phil Oglivie's Rhythm Kings, for a pre-concert talk about Jazz in early 20th century Paris at 7:30pm.
