Members of Geri’s community gathered at Harvard University to appreciate her as pianist and collaborator, scholar and educator, visionary and historical figure and more. The symposium agenda is here.
The Friday night concert, Pianos for Geri, featured four players, one and two at a time. Voices and instruments expanded the sound on Saturday for Geri: Genus, Grace and Fire. Set lists to come.
Great thanks to organizer Ingrid Monson and her colleagues – Terri Lyne Carrington, Vijay Iyer, Esperanza Spalding – and all who participated.
I’ll share some notes soon.
