Café for Care Partners: a Virtual Performance with Warren Oree and the Arpeggio Jazz Trio
Time & Location
About The Event
Join us on October 19 at 11:00 am (EST). After you register, we will send you the Zoom link and instructions.
Musician, composer and impresario Warren Oree has been a fixture on the Philadelphia jazz scene for decades. Even in the midst of the pandemic, Warren has been seeing to it that Philadelphians can find inspiration and engagement in live music with events like the Philadelphia Jazz and Soul Festival streamed live across the globe earlier this month. Warren has a history with ARTZ Philadelphia, too. In 2018, he and his ensemble gave a special performance just for ARTZ Philadelphia community members of excerpts from a piece he had written – "Down the Rabbit Hole" – in conjunction with the exhibition Charles Santore: Fifty Years of Storytelling at Woodmere Art Museum. That same year, at the opening reception for our exhibition "It Feels Like Freedom..." in the Community Galleries of The Philadelphia Foundation, Warren brought our guests to their feet as he and members of his Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble riffed on the works of art on display made by people living with dementia in our programs. And now, Warren is making his long-awaited debut as an "official" program collaborator at our next Café for Care Partners. He and a few friends will once again be performing live for us from the Woodmere's galleries, this time live streaming to us in the comfort of our own homes. So pull up a chair (and leave some room for swinging with the music) – both you *and* your partner are invited to join us for this one! Our thanks go out to our friends at Woodmere for co-sponsoring this event with us and for hosting the performance.
Cafés for Care Partners are an opportunity to get together informally outside the context of a support group. The cafes are definitely supportive – but they're also periods of respite, a chance to kick back, go someplace new with new and old friends, and share a cup of coffee or glass of wine.
