African American Women in Music Lecture Series: “The Music of Ella Fitzgerald”

Saturday, April 6, 2019

Light refreshments will be served during a meet and greet following the program.

As we celebrate International Jazz Month, we bring you Ella Fitzgerald, “The First Lady of Song,” 1917–1996. It is noted that Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the U.S. for more than half a century. She won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums. In her rendition of “You Have to Swing It”, she began experimenting with scat, and her improvisation and vocalization wowed her fans. In 1987, Ella was awarded the National Medal of Arts.
