Tri-C JazzFest & Gordon Square Collaborate for an Evening of Poetry & Jazz at the Happy Dog

Daniel Gray-Kontar

Fri 4/26 @ 6-9PM

The Gordon Square Arts District is teaming up with Tri-C JazzFest to present a series of six events leading up to Tri-C JazzFest in Playhouse Square June 27-29. The first of those events is “Syllable Symposium: From Kerouac to Kendrick,” taking place at the Happy Dog, blending two sympathetic art forms: poetry and jazz.

The evening includes a panel discussion with poet/vocalist Daniel Gray-Kontar and jazz trumpeter Dominick Farinacci, with spoken word artists Orlando Watson moderating. Gray-Kontar, Farinacci and Watson will also perform along with Damien McClendon, Ephraim Nehemiah, Tri-C JazzFest Academy’s Spirit of the Groove Ensemble, Pat W. and DJ Cooley High.

The event is free; registration is requested. Go here.
