Celebrate with us during Jazz Appreciation Month as we honor the late Charles Mingus’s 100th birthday with performances of his compositions, including his rarely performed extended work “Meditations on Integration,” as well as intergenerational interpretations of his famed “Fables of Faubus” and “Goodbye Porkpie Hat.” As an inventive composer, virtuosic bassist, and groundbreaking band leader, Charles Mingus continues to inspire generations of musicians.
