Earth Day Jazz Concert: The Alaska Suite: a story of beauty, loss and hope

April 22 @ 7:30 pm

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. The performance engages the power of artistic expression — live music, spoken words, images and poetry — to connect audiences deeply and emotionally to the scientific realities of climate change. Ultimately a story of hope, the performance leaves audiences inspired to take action.

“The combination of the music, your spoken words, and the images was magnificent. What a beautiful way to communicate many facets of climate change, and to draw people in.”
— Elizabeth Burton
Featuring:
Julian Smedley – violin
Clif Swiggett – trombone, percussion
Nelda Swiggett – piano, compositions
Chris Symer – bass
Adam Kessler – drums
Jill McGrath – poetry

This performance is sponsored by the City of Kirkland and Kirkland Interfaith Network.
