Coming Forth by Day: A Celebration of Billie Holiday
Friday, March 13, 7:30 p.m., Hall Auditorium
Jazz diva Cassandra Wilson celebrates legendary vocalist Billie Holiday’s 100th birthday in an evening of classic works. Grammy-winning Wilson pays loving homage to the late master’s innovative style with her brand new album and 2015 tour. Her irresistible, smoky smooth voice will transport you to a New York City jazz club.
Watch The Making of Coming Forth by Day:
The performance will include Wilson’s re-interpretations of standards associated with Lady Day plus an original work penned by Wilson herself, the dream-like “Last Song (For Lester),” imagined as a heartbreaking final message from Billie to her partner, Lester Young. Join us for an evening of iconic jazz with Cassandra Wilson.
Performing Arts Series
The Performing Arts Series offers a venue in which to experience the arts. As our community seeks to understand itself and others, the Performing Arts Series seeks to provide both a window through which to view ideas, cultures, art forms, as well as to provide a mirror in order to reflect upon ourselves, our history, and our own culture.
