This annual tradition in honor of Women’s History Month features some of the best-known and unsung female performers in jazz today. The 2017 festival will celebrate Ella Fitzgerald’s centennial birthday and continued influence on the evolution of jazz. “Ella, Ella: A Centennial Celebration of Mama Jazz!” is slated for four consecutive Mondays–March 6, 13, 20, and 27. Each night will explore the multi-dimensional music, life, and legacy of this jazz legend.
