Brandee Younger is a featured performer on Friday, April 30 at 9:30 p.m. CDT at the 7th Chicago Jazz String Summit (CJSS). Founded by cellist and composer Tomeka Reid, CJSS is a BIPOC-led organization dedicated to presenting “music by internationally celebrated string players.” “The purpose of this project is to bring more exposure and support to string players who are forging paths and boldly basing their musical life, outside of the prevailing classical path, in the area of jazz, improvised, and creative music” Reid says. Brandee Younger’s CJSS performance is one of eight livestreamed performances presented in collaboration with Experimental Sound Studio. All performances are free and open to the public.
Tune in to Younger’s performance on Friday, April 30 at 9:30 p.m. CDT.
