For the third in a series of three live stream concerts from Brooklyn, New York, vibraphonist Cecilia Smith and pianist Lafayette Harris, Jr. will present a program focusing on cultural influences in jazz music – African American cultural influences in particular.

Smith is a leading vibraphonist as well as a composer, arranger and teaching artist, and has performed throughout the world. Harris’ 9th and newest CD: You Can’t Lose with The Blues (Savant) went to #1 on the Jazzweek Jazz charts in Feb, 2020.

This concert series is presented as a Thank You to celebrate the COVID-19 response of staff, individuals served, and families of Michigan Medicine, among others. This series is possible through a Digital Residency grant by Amherst Glebe Arts Response, organized in partnership with musicians Cecilia Smith and Lafayette Harris, Jr. to help bring stress reduction and musical joy, from Chamber Music America through its Residency Endowment Fund.
