The American jazz violinist Regina Carter has a career that defies categorization. She performs jazz, R&B, Latin, classical, blues, country, pop, African, and more; in each genre, she explores the power of music through the voice of the violin. She is a multi-GRAMMY nominee and recipient of a MacArthur “genius” award and a Doris Duke Award. She has been widely hailed for her mastery of the violin and her drive to expand its possibilities. Presented in collaboration with the Richmond Jazz Society. This concert is in memory of Joe Kennedy, Jr., former violinist in the Richmond Symphony and considered by many to be the “father of jazz” in Richmond.
