Wynton Marsalis

Posted by Al Hathaway Thursday, June 24, 2010

I used to live in Richmond,Virgina. That was a wonderful period in my life. I would play tennis at Byrd Park, walk the Boulevard, and visit VCU to hear the Marsalis family rehearse. The father and his two sons would play, joke, and enjoy the amazing music they would create. Fast forward to many years later, we are blessed to have Bradford and Wynton establish themselves as world class musicians. On July 8th Wynton Marsalis will play a concert at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall to support Living Classrooms. The last time he was in Baltimore, he played at Enon Baptist Church to highlight his sacred music compilation. This time he will highlight the new music he has created that spotlights the music of Billie Holiday. How fitting for him to come to the home town of this music legend. If we desire to be a world class city, we need to support world class entertainment.
