In this Signature Series concert, students from the Berklee Institute of Jazz and Gender Justice, directed by Edmar Colón, will perform “new standards” from the institute’s book of lead sheets, as well as original compositions.

The mission of the institute is to recruit, teach, mentor, and advocate for musicians seeking to study jazz with gender justice and racial justice as guiding principles. Founded by Terri Lyne Carrington, who also serves as the artistic director, the institute seeks to engage itself and others in making an important and long-lasting cultural shift in jazz and other music communities.
