2018-04-22 14:00 2018-04-22 15:30 America/Los_Angeles “The Alaska Suite” Performed by the Nelda Swiggett Quintet

The Alaska Suite features a five-piece chamber jazz ensemble performing the original music of Seattle pianist and composer Nelda Swiggett. But this is not just a concert. Combining the emotional power of multiple mediums – live music, spoken words, images and poetry – the Alaska Suite seeks to inspire its audience to be proactive about addressing climate change. The performance – celebrates the beauty and majesty of Alaska; – laments the rapid impacts of global warming in Alaska (and all of the Arctic); – alerts the audience to similar impacts where they live; and last, and most importantly, – uplifts spirits with reasons for hope and calls to action.
