Anita Brown Jazz Orchestra will be presented by Jazz Forum Arts for the premiere of Hart Island Suite under the baton of composer Anita Brown. The piece honors a family member and all souls who rest on Hart Island, NYC's public cemetery, with a broad embrace to include those who succumbed to COVID-19.

The band will play two sets starting off with some favorites from Anita's book that also relate to the concept for Hart Island Suite. Additional details are available on the band's facebook page via ConstantContact promotional texts.
