Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz
Friday, February 9, 2024
Center for Faith and Life, Main Hall
Tickets on sale September 5
When Langston Hughes wrote the kaleidoscopic jazz poem Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods for Jazz, he scored it with musical cues; this creative masterwork was left unperformed at the time of his death in 1967. Now, a multimedia concert performance brings to life this funny, demanding, fantastical, political, genre-bending poem, complete with visuals, spoken word, and jazz accompaniment. Created and performed by Dr. Ron McCurdy and his inspired quartet.
Dahl Centennial Union, Peace Dining Room
The dinner series menu will be listed here in the weeks leading up to the performance.
