Columbus Jazz Orchestra’s Suite Rosa
Columbus Jazz Orchestra Director Byron Stripling discusses his motivation to bring the world premiere of John Clayton’s “Suite Rosa” to Columbus.
Often regarded as the beginning of the modern civil rights movement, Rosa Parksâ€™ famous refusal to give up her bus seat is commemorated in this world premiere of John Claytonâ€™s piece â€œSuite Rosa.â€ Be the first to hear the soulful sounds of pride and dignity as the CJO showcases the movement that helped inspire some of your favorite jazz legends such as John Coltrane and Max Roach.
Choreographed by Alexis Wilson and restaged from â€œRosa,â€ Claytonâ€™s masterpiece celebrates the courage of this American hero and her upcoming 100th birthday in a fantastic presentation of spiritual swing music.
