Race, History, and Rock Creek: History of Jazz at the Carter Barron

Thursday, May 25, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm ET (VIRTUAL)

Join us for a panel discussion as we explore the history of Jazz at the Carter Barron Amphitheater. From Duke Ellington to Ella Fitzgerald and many more--the Carter Barron was a hub of Jazz music in the DC area. Local musicians and community leaders will discuss how the Carter Barron helped shape the local Jazz community in the DMV area and explore what it meant for performers to play at the iconic venue. This event is presented in collaboration with the DC Jazz Festival. Sunny Sumter, President and CEO of DC Jazz Fest, will moderate a discussion with local Jazz musicians and past performers at the Carter Barron.
