The Journey of Gospel According to Jazz
Mallard Creek Recreation Center
Presented by Dapper Street Productions
Dapper Street Presents "Color of Jazz" Music Series
The Journey of Gospel according to Jazz featuring Dawn Anthony
The ties between Gospel music and the Jazz tradition run deep. From Louis Armstrong performing spirituals, to the sacred music of Duke Ellington or of Mary Lou Williams, many Jazz artists have worked very closely in Gospel music, and their performances styles often draw heavily from the inspiration. - Jazz Academy
Vocalist Dawn Anthony
Dawn earned her degree in music from Queens University of Charlotte, but still pursues her love for learning, performing and teaching through cultural exchanges and musical collaborations beyond the stage and classroom. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but raised in Georgia, she considers herself a northerner with a southern heart! Dawn attributes her versatility and skill to sing other genres to her classical training. Singing everything from classical to jazz, and musical theater to gospel--she thrives on challenging herself to grow as a musician, and making connections with others beyond the words and notes on the page.
