Jazzmobile has been presenting world-class programs for 57 years and continues to explore the various forms of Jazz, as well as other genres that have influenced Jazz or have been influenced by it. With Musical director, Craig Harris, we will bring Sun Ra’s music to the public through the performing/visual arts, master classes, panel discussions, and technology.The program will include an ensemble of musicians some of whom, like Harris, also performed/recorded with Sun Ra, along with other professional musicians. The program will incorporate diverse types of musical/instrumental configurations, in tribute to the music of Sun Ra. The master classes and panel discussions, with artists across the artistic genres will focus on Sun Ra’s methodology; and most programs will be for General Audiences, and will also target students as well as aficionados/fans of the music of Sun Ra.
