About The Event

Please join singer-songwriter and educator Keisha Hutchins Hirlinger for our Juneteenth Celebration!
This program will feature music celebrating and lifting up the contributions of Black people in the United States through a variety of song traditions as well as songs about freedom, resistance and calls for social change. Participants will hear songs about and inspired by these contributions as well as music that was written by Black artists. They will also learn songs that they can take with them. Music will include Spirituals, R&B, Jazz, Folk and more. This session will include performance, listening to recordings, some conversation and interactive music making. We look forward to making music with you and celebrating the Black experience.
ARTZ Notes invites you to come together with other participants to listen to music, make your own, and engage with each other and the performers. ARTZ Notes offers music and experiences as diverse as our participants. We are exploring different options – all of them virtual for now – including facilitating live performances paired with conversations, interactive improvisation and sing-alongs, and conversations and movement around pre-recorded music of all genres.
