Sarah Elizabeth Charles & SCOPE will join us for a performance and discussion on the relationship between equality and jazz. In Honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and in preparation for both Black History and Women’s History month, Sarah will lead a discussion through music around equality and inequality as it pertains to race and gender. As a teaching artist over the past 5 years, Sarah has led discussions and workshops with Carnegie Hall at Sing Sing Correctional Facility and with young people, designed an early childhood education curriculum with Rise2Shine in Fond Parisien, Haiti and is an adjunct professor at The New School For Jazz & Contemporary Music where she has built a curriculum for her course, Jazz and Gender.
She looks forward to continuing this conversation at The Nash on Sunday, January, 27, 2019
Sarah Elizabeth Charles’ musical output has been described as a “genre of one” (DownBeat Magazine), “soulfully articulate” (NY Times) and “an unmatched sound” (Jay Z’s Life+Times).
Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, Sarah started developing her musical talent in elementary school. After high school, she moved to New York City where she attended the New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Sarah has worked and studied with artists such as George Cables, Geri Allen, Nicholas Payton, Sheila Jordan, Jimmy Owens and Carmen Lundy and has released 3 critically-acclaimed CDs. She has performed at The White House, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, the Blue Note and Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in New York City and many more prestigious venues.
In addition to her performance career, Charles is also an active educator who developed and teaches a course in Jazz and Gender at The New School. In Honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and in preparation for both Black History and Women’s History month, Charles will incorporate commentary about equality and inequality as it pertains to race and gender into her performance.
