Learn About Legendary Ladies of Jazz March 10

Mar 05, 2018

On Saturday, March 10, at noon, the Barnegat branch of the Ocean County Library holds its Women’s History Month tea in conjunction with the township recreation department. Tea, coffee and cookies will be served.

The tea is followed by a presentation on the Legendary Ladies of Jazz, at 1 p.m. It is a tribute to pioneer women in jazz music history, including Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Horne, all major contributors to the American songbook.

The program relates anecdotes of how these women lived, loved and bared their souls through lyrics and melody, as well as breaking color and gender barriers.

With live singing and video images as the backdrop, the presentation relives an era when the music became the soundtrack of class and elegance.

To register, call the branch at 609-698-3331. E.E.
