On Feb. 25, the Door Community Auditorium (DCA) will present Bessie, Billie and Nina: Pioneering Women in Jazz.
Powerfully and playfully blazing new trails in both their music and activism, Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone became three of the 20th century’s most influential vocalists. All three defied social norms, embraced self-empowerment through their art and created some of America’s most enduring songs in the process.
During this program, dynamic vocalists Charenée Wade, Camille Thurman and Tahira Clayton (backed by an all-female band) celebrate the lasting legacies of these iconic artists with performances of some of their classic songs.
Tickets ($35-$58) are still available, and advance purchase is recommended online at dcauditorium.org or by phone at 920.868.2728. Information about current COVID-19 protocols is available at dcauditorium.org as well.
