For the second year, the High Point Public Library & the High Point Museum are collaborating with Jazz at Lincoln Center to provide a free concert series in the coming months. The first Tuesday from October to April (except January) from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm, the High Point Museum will be streaming Jazz concerts from the Lincoln Center for the public's listening pleasure.
Jazz at Lincoln Center's education department has embarked on this endeavor known as the Digital Concert Network. The Digital Concert Network is an exclusive network designed to provide free content of the world-renowned Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra to public libraries across the country.
Each session will be held at the High Point Museum, 1859 E. Lexington Ave., and will begin with a 15-minute introduction to the concert. The audience is encouraged to bring their own lunch, as lunch will not be provided. Come listen, network, collaborate, and celebrate jazz.
The second concert entitled "Nursery Song Swing" will be November 5. While we know them as indelible parts of our youth, nursery songs have incredible stories. They are sometimes historical records, they are coded messages, they are life lessons taught amongst the generations, and they are social comments. Above all, they are catchy, fun, and endlessly memorable. The JLCO shares all of that and more in this celebration of the format.
