The Sean dobbins all-star tribute ensemble

Celebrating Women in Jazz

Sunday, MARCH 21st @ 4:15 PM EST

This concert is generously sponsored by the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation.

The Sean Dobbins All-Star Tribute Ensemble was created exclusively for Kerrytown Concert House with the aim of celebrating the contributions of jazz instrumentalists and vocalists who have had a significant impact on the art form. Collaborating with a different combo of jazz “All-Stars” for each concert, drummer Sean Dobbins will feature a variety of musical combinations and themes in this series, weaving brief discussions and interviews in the program that will offer a unique experience each time!

Through performance and conversation, this month’s All-Star Ensemble honors the historical significance of women in jazz music, promoting awareness of the exceptional contributions of female jazz musicians to the idiom, exploring their social challenges and triumphs, and encouraging the development of young female musicians. Joining Sean are bassist Marion Hayden, vocalist Shahida Nurullah and pianist Sequoia Snyder.
