  • Let Freedom Swing: Pre-Election Day Concert Premiere

    In advance of Election Day, we are thrilled to announce the premiere of a special Let Freedom Swing concert recorded live from Jazz at Lincoln Center's very own Dizzy's Club.  

    With an emphasis on the healing power of blues, students will learn the about swing, improvisation, and the brilliant artistry of Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith. We will explore how these key ingredients of jazz are part of our diverse experience as Americans and reflect our democratic ideals.

    To help shape this performance, we have created pre-concert activities. Over the next week, students can submit original blues lyrics to be chosen by our band to perform, select emotions to inform our improvisations, and cast a vote for whether we swing a song fast or slow.

    This free concert will be available to stream beginning Monday, November 2 at 10:00AM EST and will remain available all week.

    Pre-Concert Activities

    We hope you and your students will join us and we invite you to share this concert experience with your friends and colleagues.

    As an added bonus, a nighttime concert featuring the same band will air Live From Dizzy's Club on Thursday, October 29 from 7:30PM-8:45PM. We hope you will tune in with your loved ones!

    In the spirit of swing,

    The Let Freedom Swing Team
