Exploring Black History & Social Change with Jazz

4th-6th Grade Students

Jazz4Freedom links Jazz to Black History in Pennsylvania and beyond, while encouraging individual creative expression. Taught by our experienced teaching artists, students are first engaged with a Pre-show Workshop, at your school, introducing students to Jazz through different time periods in history. The highlight of Jazz4Freedom is a field trip to the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts to see a Jazz4Freedom performance featuring music, dance, and commentary on social change throughout history. Our Teaching Artists return to your school for a Post-show Workshop where students get a deeper exploration into Social Change and its connection to the arts. Finally, classroom teachers are empowered to continue the discussion through provided study guides connecting Jazz4Freedom to academic standards in Social Studies and Language Arts.
