CONFIRMS JULY 2021 IN-PERSON DATES
& ANNOUNCES LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT HONOREE, AMINA CLAUDINE MYERS
“…devotees know her as an uncategorizable force, someone who can communicate powerfully through poetry, piano, organ and voice, and even as an actor…In her piano playing, the blues, the black church, classical music and free improvising coexist. She often paints in warm, billowing sheets, skirting both the classic lexicon of traditional jazz and the brazen outsiderism
of the avant-garde.” – The New York Times
March is Women’s History Month, so Arts for Art is declaring March Amina Claudine Myers Month! On Sunday, March 21, 2021 at 3:00pm ET, Arts for Art will present a live, solo piano and vocal performance by 2021 Vision Festival Lifetime Achievement Honoree Amina Claudine Myers, in celebration of her 79th birthday.
