Annual Billie Holiday Jazz Concert at Lafayette Square by The Billie Holiday Project for Liberation Arts, Sat., Sept. 7, 2019

Featuring local and national jazz performers for an authentic musical celebration of the important legacy of Billie Holiday.

About this Event

The Annual Billie Holiday Jazz Concert at Lafayette Square is a musical celebration of the rich and important legacy of Billie Holiday. With generous support from Johns Hopkins University, the performance is free and open to the public. By taking jazz out of the symphony hall and returning it to its nesting place near Pennsylvania Avenue — the neighborhood of Holiday’s youth — this one-of-a-kind concert establishes a new center of gravity in Sandtown for fine arts and culture.

Don’t forget to bring your picnic basket, blanket and/or lawn chair!

  • Sheila Ford, Vocalist
  • Sean Jones, Trumpet
  • Nasar Abadey, Percussion
  • Richard D. Johnson, Piano
