Jazz Philadelphia goes virtual for 3rd annual summit
Jazz Philadelphia Summit returns in a virtual format this year. The third annual event will center on the theme of “Resilience” in light of COVID-19, and because the music industry has been especially hard-hit by the pandemic, Jazz Philadelphia is offering pay-what-you-will admission to the summit.
Musicians, industry professionals and jazz lovers alike are invited to come together to honor Philadelphia’s deep jazz roots and enjoy music discovery during the two-day summit. The event will include a keynote speech on gender and social justice by Terri Lyne Carrington and performances and panels featuring Orrin Evans, Vijay Iyer, Christian McBride, Arnetta Johnson, Immanuel Wilkins and more.
The summit offers students and emerging jazz musicians the chance to expand their professional networks while learning production and marketing skills, professionals and educators an outlet to share their expertise, and fans a place to engage with artists, thought leaders and fellow music lovers in the Philadelphia jazz community.
The Jazz Philadelphia summit takes place October 9 and 10. Register here.
