Dr. V.S. Chochezi and Staajabu will feature at the Art Jazz Poetry event held at the Sacramento Fine Arts Center.
ENCORE! That is what we heard from the membership after our past jazz and poetry events. This year we are bringing back a tradition in big style. The Sacramento Poetry Society and Sacramento State Music Department will partner with us for this event. Poetry will be based on art from Bold Expressions and the jazz riffs will follow the poets. Six poets, including Mary Zeppa and former Sacramento Poet Laureate, Bob Stanley, will each choose 2 artworks that touch their creative spirits. They will read their original poems that evening accompanied by the jazz musicians. It is a feast of creativity and fun.
Cost: $20 per ticket
