Special Event: Jazz Ecology

with the Aaron Diehl Trio

Wednesday, April 10th, 5:30pm
Sudler Hall, 100 Wall Street

Jazz Ecology is a hybrid performance and presentation where a trio led by pianist Aaron Diehl will discuss the fundamental elements of jazz music, and draw out the themes that are also strongly present in the environment: coping with sorrow and loss, achieving balance and equilibrium, and managing change. The trio demonstrates how jazz can be used to express the emotion of the environment, and will perform environmentally-themed pieces.

Sponsored by the Yale Institute of Sacred Music.
