Event Details

Composer and violinist Diane Monroe draws on her decades-long, genre-defying career to craft a musical memoir that bridges jazz, classical and traditional African music, revealing an African-American violinist’s trials and triumphs. This story of personal and collective histories will be told through a collage of original music, visual art and spoken word. The evening-length suite will be performed by an ensemble that includes violin, banjo, west African kora and Western String quartet.

Performances will run 85 minutes with a 15-minute intermission.

Violin Woman, African Dreams has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
