**2017 Nash Summer Jazz Workshops**

The Harlem Renaissance and the Swing Era

Instructor: Dr. Chris Wells

This workshop will explore the musical culture of Harlem, New York during the 1920s and 1930s and the critical role of African Americans in developing the music that would come to be known as “swing.” We will discuss prominent musicians and bands (including Fletcher Henderson, Chick Webb, Gladys Bentley, Ella Fitzgerald, and Duke Ellington) and their contributions. In addition, we will discuss the various spaces for live music making—rent parties, cabarets, ballrooms—and the impact of the 1929 Wall Street crash on musical life in this fascinating and critically important neighborhood. All learners are welcome!

$30 per student

Sunday, May June 18th, 3-5 PM
