Women in World Jazz Presents Women Activists for Peace and Social Justice (In person)

Join Women in World Jazz for a performance that will feature composers who used their music to promote social justice and peace, mobilize change, raise awareness of social issues and address inequality. This performance will include visual, spoken presentations as well as live musical performances. Learn about women who made an impact on history such as Joan Baez, Nina Simone and contemporary composer/activists such as Beyoncé, Annie Lenox and Angelique Kidjo who continue to work for change.


Women in World Jazz brings together women of different nationalities with extensive experience in performance and education. The music they perform is easy to relate to, and diverse and engaging. All members of the group are accomplished musicians who play a variety of genres ranging from jazz to world/ethnic. Their international roster directly influences their choice of repertoire.


This program is supported by a grant from the Newton Cultural Council.
