2700 F St NW
Jason Moran, an irrepressible pianist and experimentalist, and Alicia Hall Moran, a fabulous mezzo-soprano, find commonality in hidden places. Here they debut a new work exploring the Great Migration of the early 20th century. It will be among Jason Moran’s most ambitious presentations yet in his ongoing tenure as the Kennedy Center’s artistic director for jazz. Onstage with the Morans will be Grammy-winning vocalist and pastor Smokie Norful, operatic tenor Lawrence Brownlee, woodwind quintet Imani Winds, and the Sweet Heaven Kings, a brass band based at the United House of Prayer in Washington.
