Samora Pinderhughes and Friends - The Joyce and George T. Wein Shape of Jazz Series

Zankel Hall @ Carnegie Hall
New York, NY

Pianist-composer Samora Pinderhughes leads world-class musicians, composers, poets, and others in a new multidisciplinary work that explores the daily realities of violence, incarceration, policing, and detention in US communities. Combining musical compositions with audio interviews and raw testimonials from 15 states across the country, The Healing Project is a condemnation of racial capitalism and the prison industrial complex and an artistic celebration of resilience, healing, and resistance. Making its NY premiere, the concert version of The Healing Project is co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall, and produced by Anna Deavere Smith, Vijay Iyer, and Glenn Ligon.
