Celebrating 20 Years of Legacy Honorees
And Honoring Joanne Brackeen
On Friday, October 10, 2014, Mid ATlantic Arts Foundation will celebrate the contributions of pianist and composer Joanne Brackeen at the BNY Mellon Jazz 2014 Living Legacy Award at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Kicking off at 6:00 pm, event guests will enjoy a pre-show gala reception in the Kennedy Center Atrium where the 2014 Living Legacy Award will be presented. In honor of the 20th Anniversary of the Living Legacy Jazz Award, previous Legacy winners will join us as our guests for the evening. Past awardees that have been invited to join us include: Kenny Barron, Nathan Davis, Benny Golson, Barry Harris, Roy Haynes, Jimmy Heath, Oliver Lake, Rufus Reid, Larry Ridley, Randy Weston, Phil Woods, Reggie and Workman.
At 7:30pm, guests will be treated to BNY Mellon Jazz 2012 Living Legacy awardee Muhal Richard Abrams and his group in a rare, Washington, D.C. performance in the Terrace Theater. This NEA Jazz Master and forward-thinking musician has had a grand impact in the development of original approaches to extended forms of composition and improvisation, and is a co-founder of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM).
